Mokuti Etosha Lodge
is situated only four minutes drive from the eastern Von Lindequist Gate near Namutoni Fort and is the closest lodge to the Etosha National Park. Located on its own private 4 000 hectare nature reserve, it shares a common border with this fascinating National Park. Upon arrival, a cool, green tropical oasis welcomes guests. Charming thatched buildings and two sparkling pools nestled amongst the vast indigenous gardens give credence to the name "Mokuti", which in Ovambo means "In the forest".
A warm Namibian welcome awaits guests at this intimate 106 room lodge, with its extensive facilities including the Tambuti Dining Room & Marula Bar, the Pool Bar & Terrace, open-air African Boma, spa, two swimming pools, separate children`s splash pool, two floodlit tennis courts, the Pool & Billiard Room, gym, reptile park, walking trails, private airstrip and professionally guided game viewing safaris into Etosha.
Meals served 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.
At night guests tell tall stories around open fires, after enjoying an al fresco dinner served in the African Boma, or under the towering garden trees, or away in the bush. When guests eventually make their way along winding pathways back to their rooms, they frequently encounter our resident herd of placid bontebok and the next morning, our squirrels who insist on sharing their breakfast.

Guests can make the most of the landscaped gardens - relaxing in the shade under the trees or at the pool; or visit the exciting reptile park, play a game of tennis, explore the reserve by following one of the marked walking trails, be pampered in the spa or workout at the gym. For the slightly more adventurous, there's the option of accompanying one of Mokuti's experienced game guides in an open safari vehicle into Etosha National Park. With its vast number of wildlife species, guests will be sighting and photographing 'til the sun sets'.
