Mushara Villa, the exclusive and private annex to Mushara Lodge, is a palatial sensation of chocolate and cream in the African bush. The villa is actually two suites separated by enough bush for them to be private yet close enough to be a single unit. The accommodation interiors of each are enormous. Lounges lead off to bedrooms, bedrooms lead off to bathrooms and the bathrooms spill into the outdoors with open-showers.
In front of this sleek and secluded crash pad is a stylish Zen garden and pool area with day beds, sun loungers, and more African bush than you could imagine. The private butler and personal chef are invisible except at times of need when they materialise on cue to swiftly attend. Etosha National Park, big and teeming with wildlife, is about 8km from the lodge. Daily game drives will reveal a fascinating world of animals, plants, and birds in one of Africa's greatest game reserves.
Mushara Villa: Etosha on your luxurious doorstep
A safari, conducted by your private ranger, in Etosha National Park will provide a fascinating experience and insight into why it is regarded as one of the best game viewing destinations in Africa: waterholes. Lining the southern perimeter of an enormous salt pan, natural waterholes attract myriad species of mammals, birds and reptiles who, unusually, slake their thirst in the heat of the day to avoid falling into the waiting jaws of Etosha's big predators.
