Mushara Outpost

A comfortable tented lodge on the border of Etosha

Find this tasteful colonial style elegant safari lodge just 10 km from the entry to Etosha National Park at Von Lindequist gate – the Mushara Outpost is a comfortable Namibian tented camp that guests can use as a sophisticated base from which to explore the park and surrounding region.

The main lodge is like an old farm homestead type of hotel with rolling green lawns, plenty of glass and a wraparound veranda for maximum outdoor living and sunshine days. Drink a cocktail while soaking up the views of the riverbed and enjoy the friendly service and home away from home aura. 

Explore the fully stocked wine cellar and choose something ancient and valuable, then sip it around the evening campfire while excellent food is prepared. The long rectangular swimming pool is a dazzling blue respite from the midday heat and a great place to read a book on the extensive sun deck. The beautiful camo grounds are a mixture of cultivated lawns and shrubs and wild indigenous trees and bush so make for a restful view and enjoyable vista. 

There are sufficient canvas and wood tented suites for 16 visitors on the banks of this dry riverbed with awesome connection to the Namibian bush. These 8 tented chalets are privately placed and are raised on wooden decks and their large glass doors bring the sounds of nature inside while minimalist furnishings do not detract from what you came for – wildlife viewing and enjoying the landscape beyond. 

Cool down in the open plan showers and enjoy the large comfy beds with their quality linens and décor. Find the Mushara Outpost in its own private reserve in southern Namibia where birdlife is prolific and some small antelope roam.

Overview

The Mushara Outpost is based on a colonial farmhouse feel with large open plan living areas and a wrap around veranda merging the indoors and outdoor living because the gardens and the views are just too wonderful. Sunny days, mesmerising sunsets and the excitement of game drives into the Etosha National Park daily ensure that your Namibian holiday is a success.

Drive a few minutes to the Von Lindequist gate of Etosha for an early morning game view of the Big 5, jackals, cheetah and many antelope. Sit beside a waterhole and just watch the animals feeding and interacting. The Outpost provides a luxury base for such game drive outings because it is a haven of chic facilities, a long cooling swimming pool with sunbeds, delicious foods and drinks and exceptional service. 

The tented chalets comprise wooden features, delightful beds and showers, plenty of space and seating areas, large glass doors leading onto private decks and exquisite decor that adds value to the surrounding wilderness in its tasteful natural colours and themes taken from the natural world. They are raised above the ground for the views and to avoid impacting the vegetation around them. Showers are glass and can be opened to the rawness of the nature outside. Enjoy minibars, tea and coffees, mosquito nets and aircon plus Wi-Fi for those who need it.

Join fellow guests in the evenings around the campfire and choose a delicious wine from the cellar. Watch the prolific bird life and the small animals coming into the gardens.  The lodge faces a dry riverbed which the local people call “omuramba” and each tent faces this splendid outlook. 

We love the way that the Etosha National Park is so close that guests can indulge in seeing the more than 300 birds, the incredible 4 731 square km salt pan that is a central focus ot the Park and the 114 different mammals. Did you know that Etosha National Park extends a huge 22 270 square km and is home to animals like oryx, kudu, wildebeest, springbok, lions, jackals, eland, elephants and more?
