Villas at Mushara
The two Mushara Villas offer some of the best accommodation in Namibia and offer an ideal retreat from the stresses of modern day life. Each ultra-luxurious villa is exquisitely furnished with a separate sitting room, spacious bedroom, huge bathroom, private plunge pool and a path leading down to a private sala in the bush. The rugged harsh wilderness of Etosha juxtaposed with the luxurious accommodation and cuisine offers a stark contrast, which has been depicted through the use of opposing textures.
Villa Mushara can either be booked on a Full Board basis (with no game drives) or on a Fully Inclusive basis when all your meals, drinks from the minibar, laundry and private game drives are included.
