Named after ‘Elsa’ the lioness which was introduced into the wilds from this very spot, Elsa’s Kopje is built on the site of George Adamson’s first campsite and is hardly visible as you approach the hill. Each of the nine individually built cottages are luxuriously appointed and, being perched on a rocky outcrop, have the ultimate ‘room with a view’. The lodge offers stunning views over Meru’s landscape of giant baobabs, doum palms and hot bushland, interwoven with lush springs and a myriad of rivers. From the safety of their verandah, looking out on the plains below, guests can spot a giraffes making their way across the bush close to groups of elephants sheltered under a tree. A private house with two ensuite bedrooms, sitting room, dining room and its own swimming pool is also available. Fine food, great service, magical dinners in the middle of the Bush, keep the adrenaline constantly flowing and spirits always high.
