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.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
