Mushara Outpost is another addition to the Mushara Collection of exquisite accommodation establishments, situated just 10 km from the Von Lindequist Gate of world-famous Etosha National Park. Mushara Outpost accommodates 16 guests in custom-made tent-like wood and canvas structures which are nestled on the banks of an ancient dry riverbed, known as ”omuramba” in the Herero language. Mushara Outpost is all about old-fashioned hospitality with warm, friendly and personalized service on the doorstep to the wonders of Etosha National Park. The lodge’s main house is styled like an old farm house with high walls, corrugated iron roof and a large wrap-around veranda facing northeast to take advantage of shade. The ambiance is similar to that of a well lived-in house: friendly and extremely comfortable with a light feel to it.
Each tent is mounted on a wooden deck, 1.5 m above the ground, providing a different perspective of the bush. A large glass sliding door leads into the tent, all windows and doors are covered with fly-screen.
Large glass windows from floor to ceiling allow for plenty of air circulation during the night. Air conditioning adds an extra level of comfort on very warm afternoons. The open plan bathroom sports a ceiling, two large windows and a separate, enclosed toilet. The shower cubicle is glass from top to bottom. Unzip the external canvas cover as far as you are comfortable with and your time in the shower takes on a new dimension.
The furnishing of the tent is minimal, comfortable and has a light feel to it. A mini-bar, coffee station, safe deposit box, telephone, mosquito net, sockets for charging storage batteries, hair drier and air conditioning are standard.
Whether you enjoy the privacy of your veranda or the comfort of your tent, the tranquility of the bush is guaranteed.
