What's good about Elsa’s Kopje Meru?

Elsa’s Kopje Meru

Unashamedly romantic, Elsa’s Kopje – situated above the site of George Adamson’s camp from where he raised Elsa the orphaned lioness – is sculpted into the rocky outcrop of Mughwango Hill. The spacious Elsa’s Kopje cottages, each with en suite bathroom and large open living room, have views from the private verandas across the adjacent plains.

At Elewana Elsa’s Kopje luxury blends effortlessly with Meru’s remote and rugged beauty.

Named after the lioness made famous by George and Joy Adamson’s biographical book and film “Born Free”, Elewana Elsa’s Kopje remains one of the most elegant lodges in Africa, in one of the most spectacular settings.

Almost invisible to the eye as you approach its home on Mughwango Hill, Elsa’s Kopje blends into the rocky crags of the “kopje” (small hill), above the site of George Adamson’s campsite. Every cottage is the ultimate ‘room-with-a-view’, uniquely designed and crafted, incorporating the natural features of the rocky hillside.

A wild and semi-arid landscape, dotted with doum palms and traversed by weaving green lines of the 13 life-giving rivers, Meru National Park offers wonderful game watching opportunities, and is one of the best locations to view rhino in their natural habitat.

Each cottage is crafted around the rocks, with a large bedroom, honeymoon suite, Cottages, open sitting room, veranda and spacious bathroom, each with breathtaking views.

Guests can enjoy inimitable seclusion in the vast expanse of Elsa’s Kopje, boasting 870km², the equal of 215,000 acres, of an authentic African landscape.

The park offers a thriving rhino sanctuary, and is famous for large elephant herds, hippo, lion, and birdlife; Meru National Park is recognized as having more diversity of animal species than any other park in East Africa.

The rugged and remote Meru National Park has rescued from oblivion thanks to Elsa’s Kopje, an environmental award-winning, boutique lodge. Winner of the Good Safari Guide’s ‘Best Safari Property in Africa’ award, Elsa’s Kopje is widely renowned as one of the most elegant lodges in Africa.
