About Elsa's Kopje

Elsa’s Kopje is named after Elsa the lioness who was made famous by George and Joy Adamson’s biographical book and film - Born Free. Elsa’s Kopje remains one of the most elegant lodges in Africa with one of the most spectacular settings. It is the best upmarket location to view rhino in their natural habitat in Kenya.

Elsa’s Kopje is almost invisible to the eye as you approach its home on Mughwango Hill. It blends into the rocky crags of the small hill, built above the site of George Adamson’s original campsite.

Safari: Meru hosts a 44 km² rhino sanctuary and its rich wildlife diversity includes rare species such as grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, lesser kudu, over 350 bird species, buffalo, elephant, lion, cheetah and leopard.
