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.

The Tents

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. Wifi is available at rooms/tents and common areas.

Whether you enjoy the privacy of your veranda or the comfort of your tent, the tranquillity of the bush is guaranteed.

The third time in the Outpost! What has to be said: Look at the comment of April 4th 2010 – and before! Everything is unchanged – incredibly good at Mushara! Many thanks again to the charming young ladies Helena, Bernadette, Selma and Rosalia, and of course to Petrus and the superb cooks! Hopefully looking to a next time

Truly impressed with the taste and elegance this beautiful lodge is appointed. We had such a relaxing experience where Toni & I were able to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was exquisite and the service with Helena and the staff were very accommodating. Thank you so much for this very special time

Fuer unseren Aufenthalt im Mushara Outpost muessen keine Superlative erfunden werden – nach drei Wochen Rundreise sind wir in einer Lodge angekommen, in der kein Wunsch mehr offen bleibt. Die atemberaubende Architektur in der wunderschoenen Umgebung – die stillvolle Einrichtung, die afrikanisches Flair mit Modernitaet verbindet – Grosszuegigkeit in jeder Hinsicht – ausgezeichnetes Essen. Das alles wird noch getoppt von der Kompetenz und froehlichen Liebenswuerdigkeit der Mitarbeiter, die uns das Gefuehl vermitteln, wir verbringen nicht nur unseren Urlaub als touristischer Gast sondern als Freund in einem privaten Haus. Der einzige Nachteil: wir muessen abreisen! Unser Versprechen: wir kommen wieder! Unsere Hoffnung: es moege bald sein!
