Mushara lodge

Mushara Lodge is situated just 8 kilomterers from the eastern gate to Etosha National Park. This makes it a convenient base for self-drive tourists who wish to explore the eastern side of Etosha. Families are welcome here.

The lodge is situated on it’s own 2,500 ha private reserve. A variety of wildlife and birdlife can be found here, not too dissimilar to that of the park. Mushara is surrounded by the Purple Pod Terminalia tree, from lodge takes it's name. The green lawn is occasionally visited by local wildlife.

Overnight in Single, Double or a Family House. The rooms are arranged in a horse-shoe shape around the swimming pool:

Single/Double Chalets: Each of the 10 double chalets and 2 single rooms are equipped with en-suite bathrooms with a shower and separate toilet, air conditioning, mosquito nets, fridge/mini-bar, safe, tea/coffee station, electric lights, direct dial telephone, electric sockets, wardrobe and luggage rack. Every chalet has a private patio with views of warthog and kudu frolicking on the lawn.

Triple: For a small family the Triple Room has a shower and a bath with similar facilities and views to the chalets.

Family House: Spacious unit with en-suite bathroom with a shower and a bath and similar facilities and views to the chalets:

For even more privacy and luxury, and on the same property, there is the more exclusive Villa Mushara. Mushara Outpost however, is 2km away with its own entrance and is completely separate from Mushara Lodge and Villa Mushara. Both have the same amenities as the other chalets, plus their own private terraces, plunge pools and outside showers.

Villa Mushara has two double suites while the Mushara Outpost has 8 rooms.

Many guests have commented on the restaurant’s quality food and attentive service. There is a set menu for lunch and dinner plus a breakfast buffet. For winter evenings there is a fireplace in the lounge and in summer meals can be enjoyed on the covered terrace. Fine wine, from Mushara's extensive wine cellar, and candlelight accompany delicious evening meals.

Those looking to relax may want to peruse the large library or visit the intimate bar, both of which are housed in the lodge's main thatched area.

Game drives can be arranged into Etosha National Park in specialised safari vehicles. Enjoy the warm welcome, excellent amenities and the freedom to explore at Mushara Lodge!

Good quality lodge, but the staff could have been friendlier. Did not feel pampered as a guest. A more dedicated host would be welcomed.

Nice rooms, food and service but less enamoured with the surroundings of the lodge. The landscape felt very stark - a little apocolyptic! But Mushara was in a great location to start our Safari in Etosha

Very nice accommodations. Extremely friendly staff. Etosha is a must-see for any trip to the area, and we enjoyed the abundance of wildlife on the game drives. A bit pricey relative to other similar lodges.

Very elegant and very comfortable. Quite amazing to find such luxury in the bush. The dinner was delightful in the boma. But somehow it lacked the charm of the other places. Perhaps because it is SO luxurious and faultless!

Mushara Lodge was very lovely, with stylish dècor, lots of comfortable sofas, and great photos around the lodge. Rooms are huge and very comfortable. Food was all good and service good as well. Located just outside the park, it provides convenient access to Etosha.

This lodge is just fantastic. We had a family room, which was like a specious apartment with big lounge and 2 bedrooms, both ensuite. The dining room and guest lounge was brilliant and the food was very good. Staff were brilliant, we enjoyed their singing after dinner. Highly recommended.


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 Lodge on your left-hand side (the entrance to Etosha is another 8km along the C38)
