Elsa’s Kopje and Elsa's private House are named after Elsa the lioness, made famous by George and Joy Adamson’s biographical book and film "Born Free".
Situated on Mugwangho Hill in the Meru National Park the Private House is perfect for a small group or family wanting exclusivity and privacy.
Elsa’s Kopje remains one of the most elegant lodges in Africa, with one of the most spectacular settings and ideally situated to view rhino in their natural habitat in Kenya.
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.
Meru National Park incorporates a 44km² rhino sanctuary, home to over 40 white rhino, and 20 black rhino and several babies. The size of the sanctuary ensures a feeling of wilderness, and finding the rhino is still a game drive challenge!
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.
Elsa's Private House 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.
All of the Elsa’s Kopje and Private House guides have their bronze level KPSGA qualification, however several of the guides have the impressive Silver Level KPSGA qualification.
Meru’s rich wildlife diversity includes rare species specific to northern Kenya, such as Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, lesser kudu, and more than 350 bird species, as well as buffalo, elephants, lion, cheetah and leopard.
