Mushara Outpost is another addition to the Mushara Collection of exquisite accommodation establishments, situated a mere 10 kilometers from the Von Lindequist gate of the world famous Etosha National Park.

Mushara Outpost is all about old fashioned hospitality with warm, friendly and personalized service on the door step to the magical Etosha Pan National Park.

The lodge house is styled on an old farm house, tall walls, corrugated iron roof with a large wrap around veranda. This is north-east facing to take advantage of cooling shade. The ambiance is that of a well lived in house, friendly, extremely comfortable with a light feel to it

The lodge accommodates 16 guest in custom made tent like structures, of wood and canvas which are nestled on the banks of an ancient dry river bed known to the locals as an 'omaramba'.

Each tent is set on a wooden deck, a meter and a half above the ground, giving us a different perspective of the bush. A large glass sliding door leads into the tent, all windows and doors are covered with fly-screen.

Large glass windows from ceiling to floor allow for plenty of air movement during night. For the very warm afternoons, air conditioning adds an extra level of comfort. The open plan bathroom has an enclosed toilet with ceiling and two large windows. The shower walls are glass from top to bottom. Unzip the outside canvas wall of the shower to your preferred height and your time in the shower takes a new dimension.

The furnishing of the tent is minimal, comfortable and has a light feel to it. A mini bar, coffee station, safe deposit box, telephone, mosquito net , hair drier and air conditioner are standard.
