Mokuti Etosha Lodge
WELCOME TO MOKUTI ETOSHA LODGE:
Mokuti is the perfect venue for travellers wanting to explore the famous eastern side of Etosha National Park. Known for its excellent and diverse wildlife encounters, it has become a popular venue for meetings, incentives, weddings and honeymoons. The closest lodge to Etosha National Park, Mokuti is only four minutes drive from the eastern Von Lindequist Gate near Namutoni Fort and is located on its own private 4 000 hectare nature reserve, which shares a common border with this fascinating wildlife reserve.
Upon arrival, guests are welcomed by a cool, green, tropical oasis. Charming thatched buildings and two sparkling pools nestled among the vast indigenous gardens, give credence to the name “Mokuti”, which in Ovambo means “In the forest”.
MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME:
Mokuti Etosha Lodge promises guests a warm Namibian welcome, and a stay during which they will be hosted in a relaxed, uncomplicated manner. This intimate lodge has 90 rooms and 16 luxury rooms. Recently refurbished, they are all air conditioned and come equipped with satellite TV, a mini-fridge, safes, free Internet Wi-Fi access, tea/coffee-making facilities and en-suite bathrooms with showers.
Mokuti Etosha Lodge offers the Tambuti Dining Room & Marula Bar, the Pool Bar & Terrace and the only openair African Boma in the area. Meals are typical Namibian feasts, featuring many local products and the famous local choices of both beef and game, all lovingly prepared according to home-style recipes.
GO ON ADVENTURES:
Leisure activities and facilities abound and include Mokuti’s exclusive spa, two swimming pools, a separate children’s splash pool, two fl oodlit tennis courts, Pool & Billiard Room, gym, reptile park, walking trails, private airport and professionally guided morning, afternoon or full day open vehicle game drive safaris into Etosha. At night, guests tell tall stories around open fi res, after enjoying al fresco dinners served in the African Boma or even under the towering garden trees. As they make their way back to their rooms along winding pathways, they frequently encounter our resident herd of placid bontebok, and the next morning, our squirrels who insist on sharing their breakfast.
MEET THE WILDLIFE:
Etosha National Park is home to 114 different mammal species including zebra, springbok, eland, oryx, kudu, giraffe and the all-important big four: the lion, the leopard, the elephant and black and white rhino. The wide variety of animals guarantees impressive game viewing. Etosha is also bird watchers’ paradise, with more than 340 bird species recorded in the park.
ONTOUKA REPTILE PARK:
Guests are welcome to join our Conservation Team on a visit to our own Ontouka Reptile Park at Mokuti and learn fascinating facts about African reptiles. If they’re feeling brave, they can book front row seats at a spectacular crocodile feeding session. Inhabitants of the park include some of the world’s most dangerous snakes, crocodiles, turtles, goannas and chameleons.
