Unashamedly romantic and named after a late lioness, Elsa’s Kopje is sculpted into Mughwango Hill. It sits above the site of an original camp where George Adamson raised and released orphan lions, long before conservation became fashionable.
Crafted around natural rocks, each cottage has a large bedroom, an open sitting room, a spacious bathroom and a veranda, all of them boasting breathtaking views.
Guests can enjoy inimitable seclusion in a surrounding, 215,000-acre expanse of authentic African landscape. Recognised as having more diversity of animal species than any other East African wilderness, Meru National Park includes a thriving rhino sanctuary and is justifiably famous for its large numbers of elephant, hippo and lion, as well as exceptional birdlife.
The rugged and remote park was rescued from oblivion thanks specifically to Elsa’s Kopje. A winner of the Good Safari Guide’s ‘Best Safari Property in Africa’ award, this boutique lodge is as environmentally-conscious as it is elegant.
