Named after Elsa the lioness that was made famous by George and Joy Adamson's book and film 'Born Free', Elsa's Kopje is located on Mughwango Hill overlooking the incredibly unique landscape of Meru National Park. The lodge itself is an exciting piece of architecture with suspended wooden walkways and multilevel cottages with private verandas. Each cottage is the ultimate 'room with a view' uniquely designed and crafted, incorporating the natural features of the rocky hillside. The Meru area is bisected by many great rivers that flow down off Mount Kenya and is as a result home to many wildlife species such as the rare Grevy's zebra and the gerenuk. The birdlife here is also fantastic.
