Mushara Outpost is all about old-fashioned hospitality with friendly and personalized service offered at the edge of the Etosha National Park, only 10km from the park gates. The lodge consists of eight custom-made rooms made of canvas, wood and glass. The room's sides are made of canvas giving a Namibian safari ambience. The tented rooms are all raised on wooden decks and nestled amongst trees on the western bank of a small omuramba (a dry river bed in the Herero language). They face eastwards, to allow for privacy and protection from the sun (which is harshest from the west).
Three large windows stretching from ceiling to floor allow for plenty of fresh air during the night and make the most of the bush views during the day. The open-plan bathroom has an enclosed toilet and a shower which can be opened to the outside if you wish. The furnishing of the tent is minimal, comfortable and has a light feel to it. Each tented room has a mini bar, tea/coffee facilities, safe, telephone, mosquito net, hairdryer and air-conditioning to cope with the warm afternoons. Whether you enjoy the privacy of your veranda or the comfort of your tent, the tranquility of the bush is guaranteed.
Mushara Outpost's main areas are styled on an old farmhouse with high ceilings and a corrugated iron roof. A wide wrap-around veranda provides cooling shade during hot Namibian summers. The ambiance is similar to that of a well lived-in house: friendly, warm and extremely comfortable with a good dash of style provided by the furnishings, large plants and light fittings. Dinner is enjoyed under the African stars whilst breakfast and lunch are taken on the veranda or in the homestead. Mushara Outpost can be booked on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast basis or alternatively on a Fully Inclusive basis.
