Overview

Mokuti Etosha Lodge is a large property located just a few minutes’ drive from the eastern Von Lindequist Gate of Etosha National Park, northern Namibia. This popular park is rich in wildlife, providing excellent opportunities to observe the big four (lion, leopard, elephant, and rhino), along with zebra, giraffe, springbok, oryx, and an abundance of bird species.

Set within large grounds, this resort-like lodge boasts a wealth of facilities, yet retains a friendly and efficient service. The thatched buildings sit amidst lush gardens, through which harmless bontebok wander. The spacious main areas are bright and tastefully decorated, and comprise a business centre, curio shop, and comfortable lounge. The Etambi Pool Bar is open for light snacks throughout the day, whilst the Marula Bar provides cocktails during high season. Dining options range from home-style meals in the Tambuti dining room, to traditional Namibian Braai served al fresco within the reed Boma. For anyone seeking a more intimate experience, bush breakfasts or private dining amongst the trees can be arranged. With two large pools, a games room, flood-lit tennis courts and a spa, there is no shortage of activities to engage in at this enormous facility.

The lodge's 108 rooms spread outwards from the central area, and, as such, accommodation at the furthest reaches is a few minutes’ walk away. Although most of the paths are sufficiently lit, guests may wish to bring a head torch for the less illuminated walkways at the outer reaches. There are 82 modest but comfortable standard rooms set beneath thatch roofs. Most of these are twin formation, and all have ensuite bathrooms. In addition, there 8 luxury rooms housing king-sized beds, and an open-plan lounge featuring a sofa bed. Recently refurbished, the décor is clean and modern, with air conditioning, satellite TV, mini-fridge, safe, free WiFi, a tea and coffee station, telephone, and hair-dryer. Laundry is available at additional cost.

Although the extensive facilities at the lodge provide ample opportunities for entertainment and relaxation, its exclusive proximity to Etosha National Park is the real draw. Open-vehicle drives lasting a morning, afternoon, or a whole day are professionally guided, and promise amazing wildlife encounters and impressive game-viewing. Those with younger children should also take advantage of the Ontouka Reptile Park on site at Mokuti, with its illuminating talks on resident snakes, crocodiles, and turtles. Feeding sessions are a highlight! For those wishing to explore the surrounding landscape on foot, a network of hiking trails begin from the lodge.

Mokuti is well suited to families, with no charge for children under 6 years of age. There is the option for up to 2 children to occupy sofa beds in the open-plan lounges of the ‘luxury’ rooms, or for those families requiring more privacy, the eight ‘luxury family’ rooms have a separate bedroom and lounge housing sofa beds and a shared bathroom. The plentiful facilities ensure a variety of activity and entertainment options for younger family members; from the children's splash pool and play area, to the games room and tennis courts for older children. Cots and high chairs are available, as well as a babysitting service. Although recommended for any age, it is essential that parents are vigilant of their children's whereabouts at all times, as the area is home an abundance of wildlife.

Mokuti Etosha Lodge is a large and somewhat commercial option for those seeking the comfort and entertainment of a facility-rich resort, along with convenient ease of access to northern Namibia's impressive scenery and wildlife.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
