Mokuti is the closest lodge to the Etosha National Park; it is only four minutes’ drive from the eastern Namutoni entrance gate and is located on its own 4000-hectare nature reserve. It shares a common border with this fascinating wildlife reserve. Upon arrival, one immediately encounters a welcoming cool green tropical oasis in which the charming African thatched buildings and sparkling pools are spaciously nestled in and around these vast and shaded indigenous gardens.
Mokuti Etosha Lodge is a Namibian icon and promises a warm Namibian welcome and a stay during which you will be hosted in a comforting and uncomplicated manner. It is the ideal venue for individual travellers wanting to explore the famous eastern side of Etosha. It is well known for its excellent and diverse wildlife encounters, as well as for meetings, incentives, weddings and honeymoons. This intimate lodge has 90 rooms and 16 Luxury Rooms. They are all air-conditioned and equipped with satellite TVs, mini fridges, tea and coffee-making facilities and en-suite bathrooms with showers.
Mokuti Lodge offers a main dining room, a pool bar and terrace, as well as the only open-air African boma in the area. Here meals are typical Namibian feasts featuring many local products and the famous Namibian choices of both beef and game, all lovingly prepared according to Mokuti’s home-style recipes. Leisure facilities and activities abound and include an exclusive spa, two swimming pools, separate children’s splash pool, two floodlit tennis courts; a gym, reptile park, walking trails, a private airstrip and open game viewing vehicles with professional guides for morning, afternoon or full-day safaris into Etosha.
At night there are open fires to gather around and tell stories after an alfresco dinner served in the boma, under the towering trees in the gardens or away in the bush. When you eventually return to your room along winding pathways, do not be surprised to encounter the resident herd of placid bontebok and the next morning, when squirrels insist on sharing your breakfast.
