Each tent at Mushara Outpost is set on a wooden deck, a meter and a half above the ground, giving us a different perspective of the bush. A large glass sliding door leads into the tent, all windows and doors are covered with fly-screen.
Large glass windows from ceiling to floor allow for plenty of air movement during night. For the very warm afternoons, air conditioning adds an extra level of comfort.

Unzip the outside canvas wall of the shower to your preferred height and your time in the shower takes a new dimension.
The furnishing of the tent is minimal, comfortable and has a light feel to it. A mini bar, coffee station, safe deposit box, telephone, mosquito net , hair drier and air conditioner are standard.
