Elsa's Kopje

The iconic Elsa’s Kopje located in Meru National Park, Kenya on the site where Born Free was filmed and Joy and George Adamson released Elsa the lioness has completed a makeover offering more suites for honeymooners and families.

The two new refurbished honeymoon cottages 1 & 2 are spacious ensuite rooms built into the Kopje (small hill) with an open private deck complete with outside baths and spectacular views across the surrounding African Plains. After a day of safari guests are encouraged to soak in an outside bath surrounded by candlelight with a glass of champagne.

To meet the increase in demand for clients wishing to bring their families on safari, Elsa’s Kopje has built a new Family Cottage. This is a spacious two bedroom cottage with a double and a twin room, both en-suite, a beautiful living room, large private deck and an outside bath by the master bedroom.  There are a variety of family-friendly children's activities that include educational cultural tours.

Elsa’s Kopje now offers a total of 11 cottages, including six Cottage Suites, three Honeymoon Cottages, one Family Cottage and a Private House which includes one double and one twin room, both ensuite, a sitting room, veranda and private pool.

The lodge also offers a beautiful infinity pool that allows guests to watch herds of passing game whist relaxing in the cooling water, massage and a small shop selling Born Free heritage and local products.

Guests at Elsa’s Kopje can enjoy the magnificent 215,000 acre Meru National Park and rhino sanctuary almost to themselves. The lodge offers 360 degree views from Mount Kenya and the Nyambene Hills to the Eastern Plains. Fantastic game viewing allows guests to see large elephant herds and the highest diversity of species in East Africa.

Rooms at Elsa’s Kopje start from US$426 (approx. £270) per person per night including full board accommodation, water, tea & coffee, safari activities including game drives, local air strip transfers and limited laundry. Based on two people sharing.
