Namibia » Etosha » Lodges » Villa Mushara

Villa Mushara is situated a mere 8 kilometers from the Von Lindequist gate of the world famous Etosha National Park.

The rugged harsh wilderness of Etosha combined with the exquisite accommodation and cuisine of Villa Mushara offers a stark contrast, which has been depicted in the villas through the use of opposing textures.

With individuality in mind, only two exclusive villas have been designed to create an ideal retreat from the stress of modern day life, where an aura of tranquility and contemplation prevails.

Each villa has its own unique ambience, designed with a classic appeal. Each fine detail has been considered within the confines of the 140 square metre living space, from a small private library in each villa to a silver candle snuff in the en-suite bathroom.

Air-conditioning will moderate the outside climate and the mini bar with its comprehensive selection of beverages, will satisfy even the most discerning palates. If music is required, an interesting selection of CDs ranging from Mozart to Santana will provide the ideal mood.

Guests are welcome to use the large swimming pool which is surrounded by a well-manicured green lawn. In the afternoon, relax and unwind in the plunge pool where you can watch kudu, warthog and impala drinking at the waterhole.

The Library Bar has an extensive wine cellar and there is an impressive and comfortable public lounge. The evening meal is served in the central lapa. Many guests comment on Villa Mushara's great personal service and excellent food. They were also thrilled to see lion and elephant on the early morning guided tours.

Whilst the emphasis at Villa Mushara centres mainly on rest and relaxation amongst elegant and luxurious surroundings, daily game drives are available. The birding is excellent as are the fabulous photographic opportunities.
