About This Accommodation

Elsa’s Kopje is a beautiful luxury property in Meru National Park and is named after Elsa the Lioness of “Born Free” fame. Elsa’s Kopje was one of the first luxury properties in Meru National Park and played an important role in prompting conservation and tourism in a park that was once plagued by poaching.

Created using natural materials and built into a rocky hillside, this stunning lodge is a firm favorite of ours. Elegant, open-fronted luxury cottages and a sumptuous honeymoon suite are decorated with stylish African flair.

For the less mobile, the cottages near the main lodge are most suitable, but if mobility is not an issue, the cottages across the rope bridge are fun and more private. If you are looking for an extra touch of exclusivity, Elsa’s Private House, near the main lodge, offers an ideal set-up for families.

Superb dinners are served al fresco - a different location each night – and the camp’s infinity pool has glorious vistas over the surrounding Meru plains.

Elsa’s Kopje is one of the best for viewing rhino in Kenya, and is 30 minutes from the Rhino Sanctuary within Meru.

We love Elsa’s for its attentive staff, effortless service, terrific game viewing and all-around great experience.

Elsa's Kopje is an extraordinary property. The room/tent was fantastic - breathtaking views everywhere - and the dining was fantastic."

Our room was simply fantastic, one of the nicest we had ever stayed in and beyond our expectations. Wish we could have had more time to enjoy the room! The meals were excellent in all respects. We really appreciated the special birthday celebration... Our guide Sammy was terrific. He is quite knowledgeable, particularly about birds, and really showed us a great time."

Elsa's was so beautiful! They really took care of us, and we loved the honeymoon cottage (was our favorite room) and the amazing views! Really enjoyed our safari guide - a very knowledgeable guy!"
