Mushara Lodge is located just 8kms from the Von Lindequist Gate on the eastern outskirts of Etosha National Park. The lodge consists of ten spacious chalets, one family unit, a triple room and two single rooms. The thatched public area consists of a small library with a selection of good books, a bar with an extensive wine cellar, airy lounge with welcoming fireplace for winter evenings, a dining area and well stocked curio shop. Great attention has been paid to the décor, which is an eclectic blend of traditional African and modern art combined with original paintings.
In a horseshoe shape around the swimming pool there are ten well-spaced thatched chalets. Each chalet and the rooms are extremely spacious and have air-conditioning, mosquito net, mini bar fridge, safe, tea and coffee making facilities, electric lights, direct dial telephone, wardrobe and luggage rack. The bathrooms are en suite with separate toilet. All chalets and rooms have a shower whereas the triple room and the family unit have a shower and a bath.
Activities on offer include game drives where guests experience a fascinating perspective of wildlife in Etosha. The lodge's vehicles have an all-weather safety design for the wet and dry season and offer a 360 degree unobstructed view.
Plains game such as zebra, kudu, oryx, wildebeest, giraffe, springbok, impala and eland abound in great numbers on the grasslands, while large herds of elephants are common. Lions dominate the predator food chain and make good use of the waterholes as hunting grounds, whilst smaller predators like the black-backed jackal trot around oblivious to humans. The demand for fresh drinking water means that there is little hierarchy at the waterholes and the diversity of species drinking at the same time can be staggering.
