Mushara bush camp

Mushara Bush Camp is the third addition to the outstanding Mushara Collection and is only 1km away from, and on the same reserve as, The Mushara Lodge. The Villa and The Mushara Outpost complete the group. The Bush Camp offers a more down-to-earth tented camp experience, and is a suitable and an affordable base for travellers, including families, who wish to explore Etosha National Park.

The main thatched Bush Camp area houses a restaurant, bar and guest lounge. There is disabled access, Internet connection and secure parking. A hot and cold breakfast style buffet, light lunches and a set dinner menu are served on the verandah, with the bush as your closest companion. The swimming pool is ideal for a splash and a dip after a day's activities as well as a chill out zone. The true bush camp impression is enhanced by the evening campfire, a great chance to exchange wildlife sightings, travel stories and plans, with fellow guests

The 16 custom-made luxury tents are built from a combination of canvas and local limestone. They are all equipped with an en-suite bathroom and shower, (and oversized window to view the bush) a fan, mosquito nets, tea/coffee station and an in-room safe. Every tent has it's own 8 square meter private verandah, with roof to floor window. The brushed cement floors and lime stone walls, are designed to keep the rooms cool from the hot afternoon sun. 4 of these tents are ideally suited for families, as they have a sleeper couch, ideal for two small children.

Activities at the camp centre around morning and afternoon game drives into Etosha National Park.

Game drives: The camp runs traditional morning and afternoon game drives into Etosha National Park. As it is only 8km from the eastern gate then you are not too far away from elephant, rhino and the many species of antelope, bird and predators the park has to offer. Many of their guests prefer to self-drive into Etosha.

Maybe the best place I've stayed anywhere in the world. Stunning property, but the staff is really what made the difference. Excellent food and hospitality.

Was not our favorite. Our tent cabin, while nicely appointed, was infested with a bazillion ants. Wifi was very poor in the common area. Food was underwhelming.

Possibly our favorite lodge. Close to Etosha park, very comfortable tented accommodation, and a good place to relax and be ready to visit the wildlife to next day.

Very nice camp! Comfortable and romantic tent, and great restaurant and lounge area. Close to the main road leading into Etosha, so you lose little time in the morning. Only drawback are few animals.

Delightful place! It was so well designed and we really felt like we had our own place in the middle of the woods! Beautiful tents and great staff. We loved sitting by the fire and mingling with the warthogs!

OOOh! Also a wopnderful experience. The dinner under the stars by the camp fire was something unforgetable. And the food!... And the architecture, the decoration! We felt we were at a five star hotel midst of the bush!!!

it was one proposed by you (The Cardboard Box Travel Shop), as the one I asked to book was full. Great choice and a bit special, gives you the feeling of `sleeping under the stars` although very luxurious - great experience

We all enjoyed our night at Mushara. The photos on the website do not do the lodge justice. The dining area was a lovely mix of African and modern styles with lots of nice touches like the magazine racks and a children`s toy box.


74 kilometres north of Tsumeb on the B1, turn west towards Namutoni on the C38. After another 15 kilometres you will find the entrance to the Mushara Bush Camp on your left-hand side (the entrance to Etosha is another 8km along the C38)
