Mushara Lodge is located only 8 kilometres from the Von Lindequist Gate on the eastern outskirts of the Etosha National Park. The name Mushara derives from the Purple Pod Terminalia tree, which grows in abundance in the lodge grounds and the surrounding area.

Mushara Lodge consists of ten spacious chalets, one family unit and two single rooms. In a horseshoe shape around the swimming pool there are ten well-spaced thatched chalets.

Each chalet and the rooms are extremely spacious and are furnished with 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 toilette. Seven of the chalets have just a shower and the other three chalets, the triple room and the single rooms have a bath and shower.

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 electic blend of traditional African and modern art works combined with original painting
