Mushara Outpost

Mushara Outpost is all about old-fashioned hospitality with warm, friendly and personalized service on the doorstep of Etosha National Park. Based upon the elegance of an African Homestead, yet with a contemporary flavour, the lodge features eight custom made tents which nestle on the banks of an ancient dry river bed.

Found less than 10km from the Von Lindequist Gate to the East of Etosha, Mushara Outpost accommodates 16 guests in bespoke tents, perched over a metre off the ground and encased by the Tamboti trees that map the  dry river bed. Each unit has air-conditioning to keep you cool on hot summer nights and en-suite bathrooms come with a shower that can be unveiled to the vistas of Africa. The private wooden deck is the ideal setting to reflect, whilst you are entranced by the sound of nature.

Mushara Outpost’s 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. Marc and Mariza Pampe, the owners, have created the feeling of a much-loved home: friendly, warm and comfortable with a relaxed atmosphere and personalised service. The spacious interior is beautifully decorated with hand-picked artifacts with a large dining table where tasted African fare can be enjoyed with your fellow guests. The ‘Boma’ area is also great spot for sundowners and there is a large swimming pool surrounded by sun loungers, ideal for enjoying some down time.

Activities focus on exploring nearby Etosha, with scheduled and private game drives, accompanied by knowledgeable guides. Those with hire cars can also explore the park at their leisure. The Mushara Collection also offers Mushara Bush Camp, which has 16 tents and focusses particularly on families, and for those looking for complete privacy, Villa Mushara offers two one bedroom villas, each sold on an exclusive use basis, complete with 140 m2 living space, private library, a private plunge pool & “sala” in the bush.
