MUSHARA BUSH CAMP – ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

Mushara Bush Camp is situated jus 10km from the Von Lindequist gate of the world famous Etosha National Park and is wonderful for families as it is the first totally child friendly lodge in the area with complimentary child-minders, kiddies pool and kiddies’ corner.

The camp has just 8 ensuite tents built from a combination of canvas, wood and local limestone with large private verandas and roof to floor windows. Four of these tents are ideally suited for families with small children as they have a sleeper couch for two children

Your days can be spent absorbing the peaceful bush surroundings or exploring Etosha National Park on guided game drives, while in the early evening you can sit around the campfire and exchange stories of the day’s wildlife sighting.

CAMP

The Mushara Bush Camp offers a down-to-earth tented bush camp experience which is well suited as an exceptional affordable base for independent travellers and families exploring the magical Etosha Pan National Park.

Each of the 16-custom made ensuite tents is built from canvas, wood and local limestone with a private veranda and windows from floor to ceiling – these tents are spacious and airy. Four tents have a sleeper couch suitable for two children each.

The large bathroom has a big window and the shower offers views into the surrounding bush. The brushed cement floors and stone walls keep the tents cool even in the afternoon sun. A coffee station, safe deposit box, mosquito net, socket for charging storage batteries, hair drier and floor fan are provided.

The main Bush Camp House is thatched and has a true bush camp feel to it. The early evenings see a campfire lit where guest can exchange stories of the day’s wildlife sightings. Dinner, lunch and breakfast are served on the thatched veranda with the bush being just steps away. WIFI is available in the common area/main lodge area.

ACTIVITIES AND WILDLIFE

Etosha National Park, proclaimed in 1907, is one of Southern Africa’s finest and most important game reserves. The Park covers an area of 22,270 km² and is home to 114 mammal species, 110 reptile species, 16 amphibian species, more than 300 bird species and one species of fish. The 4,731 km² salt pan – the largest of its kind in Africa – is the centre piece of the park. The pan’s shimmering white crust of salt crystals extends as far as the eye can see. In previous times this was a lake the size of Holland fed by several rivers, probably including the Kunene as well. When the rivers gradually changed their course the water in the lake started to evaporate until only the huge dry depression remained.

Guided Game Drives into the Etosha National Park – great numbers of plains game such as 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 predator food chain and cleverly use the waterholes as hunting grounds and smaller predators like the black-backed jackal are common. Since every animal needs water there is constant coming and going at the waterholes and the diversity of species drinking at the same time can be staggering and waterholes are the best places to watch Namibia’s greatest daily wildlife dramas unfold.

GIVING BACK

All of our camps and lodges run on a “solar grid feed system” – we can produce a maximum of 70% of our electricity needs by solar – the difference comes from the power grid. All globes are energy saving LED. Hot water geysers run on a timer – maximum time on per day is 4 hours – geysers which are not used are switched off – this is managed daily!

All our waste is recycled on the reserve. We have three different bins – one for material that burns, a second for material which does not burn and a third for kitchen waste.

Our kitchen waste is used on our compost heaps. We produce a significant amount of our own vegetables and herbs and a smaller amount of fruit – all of these benefit from the compost.

Paper and plastic get burned in an incinerator and glass and metal gets stored on a secure sight on the property

We do not believe in carting our burnable and none-burnable waste to the landfills in the next town as these landfills are not managed well.

Water is used wisely. All wastewater is treated naturally by bacteria in three chamber French drains. The water flows from the first to the third chamber and once it is in the third chamber it is clean enough to be pumped out into the veld where it is absorbed by the soil and can filter into the ground.

Our way in reducing the carbon footprint is by using as much as possible solar power and reduce the usage of cars, trucks and generators.

With regards to sustainable procurement, we source all vegetables and herbs that we cannot produce ourselves from local producers. Our fresh fruit juices come from a local farmer who also supplies us with local homemade jam/marmalade. All services are from local suppliers – refrigeration, electrical, mechanical. When possible, we employ staff from the surrounding communities.

We are active with conservation efforts on our reserves and environmental sustainability is on ongoing effort at the Mushara Collection of Lodges.
