Mushara Lodge is located amidst the Purple Pod Terminalia trees in the Etosha region of Namibia. Situated less than 10km from the Von Lindequist Gate on the eastern boundary of Etosha National Park, it is an ideal overnight stop for visitors. The park covers 22 270 km2, including the 4731 km2 salt pan at its centre, and has vast panoramic views and abundant wildlife.
The lodge consists of ten spacious chalets, one family unit, a triple room and two single rooms. The thatched communal area boasts a small library, fireplace, a dining area, a curio shop, and a bar complete with a comprehensive wine cellar. The African-modern fusion décor is eclectic and tasteful.
Mushara offers a variety of accommodation options to cater for each guest’s needs. There are ten spacious double chalets, two single rooms, a triple room, and a family house. Each features air-conditioning, mosquito nets, a mini-bar fridge, a safe, tea and coffee making facilities, internet access, a direct dial telephone and a wardrobe.
The ten thatched chalets, arranged in a horse-shoe shape around the swimming pool, have cool stone floors and crisp white linen. Each chalet has a private patio overlooking the lawn where warthog and kudu may be spotted. All the chalets are en-suite, with a shower and separate toilet, although three of them offer both a bath and a shower.
Both single rooms and the triple room have the same features as the chalets, but feature both a bath and a shower.
On the other side of the property is a self-catering family house. It has two en-suite bedrooms, a kitchen, lounge and dining room, as well as a TV and DVD player. There is also a garden complete with a small climbing frame for the kids.
Etosha National Park is home to 114 mammal species, 110 reptile species, 16 amphibian species, 340 bird species and even one species of fish. Great numbers of zebra, kudu, Oryx, wildebeest, giraffe, springbok, impala and eland can be found on the grasslands while elephants can also be seen in large herds. Lions dominate the food chain and often use the waterholes as hunting grounds, while smaller predators like the black-backed jackal trot about seemingly oblivious to the presence of humans. All the big cats roam the park, and black rhino is relatively common. The bird watching opportunities, especially in summer, are excellent.
