Elsa’s Kopje, named after Elsa the lioness, made famous by George and Joy Adamson’s biographical book and film “Born Free”, is an incredible achievement considering the landscape and the nature of the lodge. It is almost invisible to the eye as it blends into the rocky crags of the “kopje” (small hill)
Elsa’s Kopje is the only fully operating lodge within Meru National Park, meaning that our guests have the entire park to themselves and view more than 350 bird species and game typical to northern Kenya, such as buffalo, lion and leopard, to name but a few.
