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.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
