The Mushara Outpost
Opened on 01 December 2007
The latest addition to the Mushara Collection of
outstanding accommodation is The Mushara Outpost. The Mushara Outpost is on
the same reserve as the Mushara Lodge and Villa Mushara, as the crow flies 2
km east of the Mushara Lodge. The Mushara Outpost consists of 8 units for
guests, each sleeping two and two units for tour guides. Guests are
accommodated in custom made tents on a wooden deck nestled amongst trees on
the western bank of a small omuramba, also known as a dry river bed. As far
as establishment know the last time water flowed through the omaramba was 40
years ago. The ground water level is shallow so that trees and shrubs have
overgrown most of the omuramba.
The tents are facing eastwards, to allow for privacy and protection from the sun which is harshest from the west. Pathways leading to and from the main lodge are on the western side. Since establishment spend most of host time on “ground level” establishment decided to raise the tents off the ground to provide a different perspective of the surrounding bush.
A wooden ramp leads onto the deck and 12 square meters of private space , this is the perfect spot for enjoying the solitude of nature. A large glass sliding door leads into the tent, all windows and doors are covered with fly-screen to keep cool air in and insects out. The tent is a wooden structure, wrapped with canvas containing fixed wooden door and window frames. Three large glass windows stretching from ceiling to floor allow for plenty of fresh air during the night. For 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. When faced with a choice between a large mirror at the basin or a better view into the bush, the mirror size quickly shrank. 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 on a new dimension! The furnishing of the tent is minimal, comfortable and has a light feel to it. A mini bar, coffee station, safe, telephone, mosquito net and hair drier are standard. Did establishment mention the air con? The lodge house is styled on an old farm house, tall walls, corrugated iron roof with a large wrap around veranda.
This is NE facing to take advantage of cooling shade. The ambiance is that of a well lived in house, friendly, warm and extremely comfortable with a homely atmosphere. Dinner is enjoyed under the African stars, breakfast and lunch are taken on the veranda and in the house. A wide refreshing pool is welcome relief after a hot day in Etosha where the focus of the day's activities take place. The Etosha National Park is Namibia's premier big game destination and one of Africa's iconic landmarks. The Mushara Outpost offers game drives into the park with talented local guides who are truly passionate about sharing the wonders of Etosha. The Mushara Outpost is all about old-fashioned hospitality with warm, friendly and personalized ser vice on the door step of the magical Etosha Pan National Park.
