On the eastern border of the Park is a stretch shared with the 4 000 hectares Mokuti Etosha Lodge private reserve. Only a short distance from the Von Lindequist Gate near the Namutoni Fort lies Mokuti Etosha Lodge, whose numerous exciting features and shady location in an Acacia and mopane woodland make it the perfect base for families to explore Etosha.
Spread out across an area that changes from kaokoveld and mopane shrub in the west to woodland and grassveld in the east, Namibia’s Etosha National Park is a must-visit destination and the perfect family holiday. With elephant families and herds of springbok, gemsbok, kudu and zebra congregating around waterholes and lions, leopards and cheetahs lying in wait, centred around a stark white salt pan with a fringe of salt-tolerant grass, it is easy to see why.
Game drives inside Etosha National Park with Mokuti’s experienced guides are an unforgettable experience: the numerous waterholes are ideal for observing the comings and goings of the many different animals, while you can cross your fingers and hope for a sighting of a pride of lions on the stretches of grassland – or even better, see these predators in action.
Mokuti Etosha Lodge is a highlight itself. Its large swimming pool surrounded by a shady lawn is the unofficial post-drive meeting place. The poolside bar keeps you supplied with delicious sliders and drinks between your dips into the refreshing water.
Mokuti Etosha Lodge appeals to families with a love of nature and activities. The Ontouka Reptile Park is a must for the not so squeamish, while the tennis courts and billiard room will keep the hyperactive busy. While the kids play, parents can indulge in peace and quiet at the spa.
At just four kilometres from the gates of Etosha National Park, make your family at home at Mokuti Etosha Lodge.
