Best time to Visit
Good time to visit
Average time to visit
The best time to visit Etosha is from April to September as the temperature is tolerably cool, especially at night. From May to September the increasingly thirsty animals gather at waterholes, making it the best time to go to Etosha for game viewing. Summer is the best time to travel to Etosha for bird watching as migratory birds (both intra-African and Palaearctic) flock into the park's many habitats after the summer rains.
To start planning your holiday to Mushara Bush Camp
Mushara Bush Camp, on the Mushara Private Reserve at the edge of Etosha National Park, Namibia is a family-friendly lodge with just 16 en-suite tented rooms.
Mushara Bush Camp is a down to earth camp that is ideally located on the Mushara Private Reserve about 8km from the Von Lindequist Gate on the eastern outskirts of the Etosha National Park.
The camp has a bush chic feel to it and has 16 tented rooms which are linked to the main area by a stone pathway and covered with a thatched roof to keep the rooms cool. Five of these rooms are a little larger and have a sofa bed which pulls out for children. The owners have children so they have very much designed this great value lodge with families in mind.
There is a fantastic large swimming pool to cool off in during the heat of the day, one end is shallower for children and there are plenty of sun loungers to relax on. In the children's outdoor play area there is a fantastic climbing frame and inside the main area lots of toys and a table set up with crayons and colouring and story books. The lodge is also able to offer flexible meal times and menus to fit in with families.

Louisa Verney (Staff)
I really liked Mushara Bush Camp which is well located close to the Von Lindequist Gate, to the east of Etosha National Park. The main area has a stylish bush camp feel and had a play area for children with toys and a little table with crayons to amuse creative minds. The tented rooms are also stylish and comfortable - a perfect base from which to explore the park. There is also a large pool, perfect to relax by during the heat of the day.
