The award-winning Elsa’s Kopje is simply the best place to view rhino in their natural habitat in Kenya. This luxury lodge, named after Joy Adamson’s lioness, Elsa, is set on the Mughwango Hills of Meru National Park.
Enjoy an exclusive safari experience here by exploring the park at your leisure and in almost complete privacy except for the diverse range of wildlife that inhabit it. The nine elegantly appointed cottages plus a Honeymoon Suite and Private House offer you luxury accommodation in this beautiful region. Every cottage has spectacular views and from the top of the Mughwango Hills you can enjoy a 360° view of the stunning volcanic landscape.
Spend your days on game drives or walks in this exclusive reserve looking for rhino (both black and white), the mighty elephant, buffalo and predators such as the lion, cheetah and leopard. You will be spoilt here with the chance to spot some rare species such as the Somali ostrich, Grey’s zebra, gerenuk as well as the reticulated giraffe. The luxury Elsa’s Kopje has a special permit for night drives, offering you a unique opportunity to experience the nocturnal activities of the park.
Laze around in the swimming pool or on the main decks of the communal area where fresh and divine meals are served up. As many products as possible are sourced locally at this luxury lodge where the ethos is to have as minimal impact as possible on the surrounding area. You can book for a massage before or after a day’s fishing or a journey to the local village to view traditional dancing.
