Overview

The Mushara Collection consists of four well-appointed, private accommodation options all a short distance from Etosha National Park in northern Namibia. The first of these to open was Mushara Lodge, a lovely property with a traditional, ‘down to earth’ feel which lies just 8 km from the park’s eastern Von Lindequist Gate and makes for an ideal place to stay for anyone looking to explore the renowned national park either with a guide or independently.

The pristine accommodation comprises ten spacious double-bed chalets that are carefully arranged around the swimming pool. In addition, there are two single rooms for solo travellers, a triple room for larger groups and a family house designed specifically to comfortably accommodate parents travelling with children. All rooms have plenty of space and air conditioning, with mosquito nets provided for all beds. Bathrooms are en-suite and come with a shower; the triple room and family house also have a separate bathtub in addition to the shower. In-room amenities include a safe, a minibar and tea and coffee making facilities.

The key draw to Mushara Lodge is the game drives into the wildlife-rich Etosha National Park. The park was established back in 1907 and covers an area of 22,270 km², with more than 550 species calling it home. It remains very well protected to this day and is highly rated for its wildlife viewing opportunities. When out on game drives, animals such as giraffes, wildebeest, zebras, impalas, elephants and lions can often be seen. The huge salt pan in the park is also a fascinating central feature - spanning an area of 4,731 km², it’s the largest in all of Africa and a wonderful sight to behold.

When not out exploring, there are plenty of good facilities to make use of. There’s a public lounge with ample space for relaxation and a cosy fire place, as well as the small but well-stocked library, a shop selling souvenirs and sundries, and a bar with an impressive collection of international wines. Meals are served in the dining area with a focus on local dishes and both indoor and outdoor dining are possible. There’s also the pool, which is of a good size and is surrounded by well landscaped greenery, with plenty of loungers too.

The lodge actively welcomes children of all ages, with those aged three and under able to stay free of charge. Additional cots are available on request and there’s a play area at the family house to keep youngsters entertained. While the lodge itself is fenced, the pool is not, so parents are reminded to keep children under constant adult supervision.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
