Elsa’s Kopje>meru kenya

kenya safari camps, luxury safari camps meru kenya, meru national park safari lodges and camps, vacation safari camps kenya, elsa s kopje camp kenya.

Elsa’s Kopje is named after Elsa the lioness, made famous by George and Joy Adamson’s biographical book and film “Born Free”. Elsa’s Kopje remains one of the most elegant lodges in Africa, with one of the most spectacular settings. It is the best upmarket location to view rhino in their natural habitat in Kenya.

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 cottage is the ultimate ‘room-with-a-view’, uniquely designed and crafted, incorporating the natural features of the rocky hillside. Each cottage has spacious double or twin beds with en suite, elegantly appointed bathrooms. There is an open bar, lounge and dining room with an exceptionally inviting infinity pool overlooking the Meru plains.

Elsa’s Private House is a spacious, stylish, exclusive hideaway set slightly apart from the main lodge. It has 1 double room and 1 twin, both with their own en suite bathrooms. There is a large private living and dining area, leading seamlessly outdoors into a private garden and swimming pool.

Elsa’s Honeymoon Suite is a triple level room, with a sitting room, double bedroom and en suite bathroom. With its breathtaking views, this latest addition is definitely Elsa’s 'pride'!

 Rhino Sanctuary – Meru National Park incorporates a 44km² rhino sanctuary, home to over 40 white rhino, and 20 black rhino. The size of the sanctuary ensures a feeling of wilderness, and finding the rhino is still a game drive challenge!
 History – built overlooking the site of George Adamson’s camp in Meru, the rock was the playground of Elsa the lioness of “Born Free” fame.
 Location – currently the only fully operational lodge in Meru National Park, Elsa’s guests have the entire Park to themselves. The park is arid with Doum Palms and Baobab trees, but its 13 rivers and springs also allow for thriving riverine habitats. Meru National Park is known for its diversity of habitats and species. The lodge has special licence to walk, fish, and conduct night game drives. The peak of Mughwango Hill looks down over the park, affording a breathtaking 360º view of the surrounding volcanic plains.
 Highly qualified guides – all of the Elsa’s Kopje guides have their bronze level KPSGA qualification, however three of the guides have the impressive Silver Level KPSGA qualification.
