Mushara Bush Camp

Mushara Bush Camp

Mushara Bush Camp offers visitors a comfortable and down-to-earth tented bush camp experience, aimed at those who want an affordable base from which to explore Namibia’s iconic Etosha National Park. The camp is only ten kilometers from Von Lindequist gate on the eastern boundary of Etosha, so access to Etosha is quick and easy. On occasion one stays in a lodge that is so far removed from reality that the experience becomes muted and is not very satisfying. Mushara Bush Camp is has the best of both worlds as it is a true bush camp, but has unique luxuries that make it feel special.

Accommodation at Mushara Bush Camp consists of sixteen spacious en-suite tents constructed from canvas, wood, and local limestone. Each offers a large private veranda and windows from floor to ceiling. The large bathrooms feature a big window, and even the shower offers magical views into the surrounding bush making the stay here unforgettable. Brushed cement floors and stone walls keep the tents cool even in the afternoon sun. Four of the tents have sleeper couches suitable for two children each. The rooms provide tea and coffee making facilities, mosquito net, electrical outlets, and a floor fan.

The main house at Mushara is thatched and continues the theme of a true bush camp. Early each evening, the staff lights a campfire, and guests gather around the flames to swap stories of the day’s activities. Meals are home-cooked and satisfying, and each meal is served on the thatched veranda with views onto the bush that surround it.

A unique feature of Mushara Bush Camp is that children are most welcome! The camp offers free babysitting service, and there is a special play area for children in the main house with books, games, toys, and art supplies. An outside park features a jungle gym, an old tractor, a sand pit, and a kid’s pool. Meals and meal times will be arranged according to the children’s needs.

The Mushara Collection of lodges was created by the Pampe family who has turned what was once a game farm into a world class destination on the doorstep of Etosha National Park. These lodges are an excellent alternative to accommodation within Etosha itself.

On the same reserve are its sister lodges Mushara Lodge, Villa Mushara, and Mushara Outpost.
