Rooms and Suites
With each tent at Mushara Outpost 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 the night. For the hot 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 minibar, coffee station, safe deposit box, telephone, mosquito net, hair drier and air conditioner are standard.
Whether you enjoy the privacy of your veranda or the comfort of your tent, the tranquillity of the bush is ever present.

Etosha National Park is one of Southern Africa's finest and most famous Game Reserves, which was declared a National Park in 1907. The park covers an area of 22 270 km² and is home to 114 mammal species, 340 bird species, 110 reptile species, 16 amphibian species and one species of fish.
A San legend, depicting the formation of the Etosha Pan tells of how a village was raised and everyone but the women slaughtered. One woman was so distraught about the death of her family she cried until her tears formed a massive lake. When the lake dried up nothing was left apart from an enormous white pan.
On game drives in this Etosha Private Reserve guests experience a fascinating perspective of wildlife in Etosha.
The vehicles have an all-weather safety design for the wet and dry season- they offer a 360-degree open-air unobstructed view - optimal height for visibility in a spacious and comfortable atmosphere - up-to-date game movement information and thereby a high success rate in game spotting.
Due to the nature of Mushara Outpost, children older than 12 years can only be accommodated.
