Mushara outpost

Situated in the same reserve as the Mushara Lodge and Villa Mushara, is Mushara Outpost. It is set 2km from Mushara Lodge, has it’s own entrance way and is completely separate from both the lodge and Villa. This small, intimate lodge, has 8 guest units that were built up on raised platforms to provide a unique perspective of the surrounding bush.

The Outpost’s main area is a vast open room. It has been constructed in the style of an old Namibian farmhouse, with high ceilings and a corrugated iron roof and large wrap-around veranda. Inside though, stylish furniture, large plant pots and grand light fittings have been set out to create various sitting areas, together with a lounge and dining area.

Accommodation is nestled amongst the trees of a dry river bed, also known as an omuramba. It has been designed and constructed with a unique combination of canvas, wood and glass. Each room has large glass windows and the doors slide open onto a private deck, enabling you to view the surrounding bush. The en-suite bathroom includes a shower with glass walls from floor to ceiling. A room with a view, bringing the outdoors inside!

Every tented room has a mini bar, air conditioning, small safe, coffee station, telephone, hair dryer and mosquito net. There is also a fairly spacious veranda with sitting space in which to relax.

Dinner is enjoyed under the African stars. Breakfast and lunch can be taken on the veranda or in the house. The wide refreshing pool is a welcome relief after a hot day in the Etosha Park where the focus of the day's activities take place. Guests often comment on how The Outpost is such a comfortable place to stay after driving around Etosha all day!

The Mushara Outpost offers game drives into the park with talented local guides who are truly passionate about sharing the wonders of Etosha. There is also a small waterhole with a bird-watching hide.

Mushura Outpost. Nature’s perfect hideaway.

Really lovely - gardens a bit fly infested but easily forgivable given lovely tents and communal areas.

A boutique lodge with very confortable tents on stilts in the Etosha outskirts. Upscale service and food.

Chalets and main buildings are wonderful, unfortunately there are no activities so you don't have much time to enjoy it.

We enjoyed this place. The communal lounge facility is very nice and comfortable. The food was also very good. The rooms are a bit small but very nice.

This lodge was a taste of luxury and a beautiful place to chill out. The beds were extremely comfortable and we enjoyed the shower experience. The food was the best that we had in Namibia. The Wi-Fi worked well in the main building.

Orginally we were to have the family chalet but it was being renovated.. Two chalet's were recommended and they were wonderful.. This was the best and most elegant accomodation. The food and the people were great. We highly recommend this place. This is one place we wish we had longer at.


74 kilometres north of Tsumeb on the B1, turn west towards Namutoni on the C38. After another 13 kilometres you will find the entrance to the Mushara Outpost on your left-hand side (the entrance to Etosha is another 10km along the C38)
