Elsa's Kopje

Meru National Park, Kenya

Part of the Kenya Safari & African Safari Collection

Elsa's Kopje is named after Elsa the lioness, made famous by George and Joy Adamson's biographical book and film 'Born Free'.

Winner of the Good Safari Guide's 'Best Safari Property in Africa' award, Elsa's Kopje is renowned for being one of the most elegant lodges in Africa, with the most spectacular setting. It is the best upmarket location to view rhino in their natural habitat in Kenya.

An award winning design with stunning views from the open bar, lounge and dining room, Elsa’s Kopje is almost invisible to the eye as you approach its home on Mughwango Hill. It blends into the rocky crags of the “kopje” (small hill), built above the site of George Adamson’s original campsite.Every sumptuous cottage is the ultimate ‘room-with-a-view’, uniquely designed and crafted, incorporating the natural features of the rocky hillside.
