Barely visible on approach, Elsa’s Kopje blends seamlessly into its surrounds. Perched high on top of Mughwango Hill, this superb lodge stands as tribute to Elsa, the orphaned lioness in the film “Born Free”.
Charming cottages are crafted around the natural features of the hill, each with an ensuite bathroom, sitting room, dining area and breathtaking views of the savannah below. Elsa’s Private House - with double rooms, a sitting room, veranda and plunge pool - is ideal for families. The menu is Northern Italian, peppered with local and international dishes, accompanied by
freshly baked bread, crisp salads and locally grown vegetables. Lamp-lit pathways lead towards guest areas that include an open bar, sitting room and dining area, with an exceptionally inviting infinity pool overlooking the Meru plains. Adventures include game drives, guided nature walks, bush meals, excursions to the Tana River and cultural visits to a local village.
