Located only 8kms from the Von Lindequist Gate on the eastern outskirts of the Etosha National Park, Mushara Lodge is ideally situated for travellers visiting the park. The Lodge consists of ten spacious chalets, one family unit and two single rooms. The name Mushara derives from the Purple Pod Terminalia tree, which grows in abundance in the lodge grounds and the surrounding area. The thatched public area consists of a small library with a selection of good books, a bar with an extensive wine cellar, airy lounge with welcoming fireplace for chilly winter evenings, a dining area and well stocked curio shop. Great attention has been paid to the d├ęcor, which is an eclectic blend of traditional African and modern art works combined with original paintings.
