About Me

I am Elsa’s Kopje. I am a luxury oasis amidst the vast Meru National Park. I whisper stories of the past atop large boulders, providing undisturbed views of the vast plains below. Intertwined with the hillside, I have become a part of the landscape. I provide shelter from the rain, shade from the sun, but am otherwise open to the elements. Watch monkeys swing by and spot herds of elephants in the distance all from the comfort of your suite. Each of my rooms is crafted around the boulders I rest on and add to the unique interior. Enjoy an open sitting room, a large bedroom and a spacious bathroom, each with breathtaking views.

Join our all inclusive African Signature Escape for 8 Days / 7 Nights and return home with an unforgettable experience. 

What to do at Elsa’s Kopje

Meru is home to a thriving Rhino sanctuary, where you can find 70 shy and endangered black rhinos. It is one of the best places in Kenya to see these strong and powerful species. The National Park is also famous for large elephant herds, lion & hippo sightings as well as many different species of birds.

Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives accompanied by famous sundowners where you can enjoy a light snack and refreshments. The arid landscape with its mix of reds, yellows and greens is what you expect a safari in Africa to look and feel like — Elsa’s Kopje will give you that and more.

Want to leave the car behind? Hike up Mugwhango Hill during the light of sunrise to find a 360 view of the entire Meru National Park. From the plains of Meru to the east and the majestic Mount Kenya to the west, you will feel like you are on top of the world.

Shared Secrets

If you are familiar with the popular movie “Born Free,” then the name Elsa should ring a bell. Down the hill from the property, George and Joy Adamson set up their camp and raised little Elsa as well as other orphaned lions and released them back into the wild.

Meru National Park is known for having the biggest diversity of animal species in all of the East African National Parks.

This park is the perfect place for those looking for something more off the beaten path. Sightings such as elephants, white rhinos, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, lions, giraffes and Grevy zebras are very common.


Rooms start at $291 per person per night. This includes accommodation, all meals, selected drinks as well as laundry. Elsa’s Kopje is part of The Elewana Collection and can be enjoyed during both SkySafari Kenya Classic as well as Connoisseur package.
