Elsa's Kopje is named after Elsa the lioness, made famous by George and Joy Adamson's biographical book and film "Born Free". Winner of the Good Safari Guide's 'Best Safari Property in Africa' award, Elsa's Kopje is renowned for being one of the most elegant lodges in Africa, with the most spectacular setting. It is the best upmarket location to view rhino in their natural habitat in Kenya. It blends into the rocky crags of the "kopje" (small hill), built above the site of George Adamson's original campsite.
At the top of the rock, the main area has been cleverly designed to feature the beautiful infinity pool as the focal point surrounded by the lounge and dining areas. This means that, from anywhere you look you can see the pool and the amazing view.
En-suite Cottages x 8; Each cottage consists of a main bedroom, en suite bathroom (some have outdoor baths) and private deck. Note: Cottage 3 has a private sitting room rather than deck. Maximum of 4 extra beds in camp at any one time, to accommodate children under 16yrs only.
Honeymoon Suite x 1; A large 3-tiered cottage with private sitting room, main bedroom and en-suite bathroom, and a small private deck. The Honeymoon suite and Cottage 3 can both convert their sitting rooms into twin bedrooms (suitable for children under 16).
Private House x 1; 1 en-suite double bedroom with dressing room, and 1 en suite twin bedroom, with a large dining / sitting room, private garden and swimming pool.
Elsa's Kopje is renowned for its delicious cuisine. With sumptuous fresh salads and pastas for lunch, combining North Italian recipes with more unusual dishes (such as crispy Tempura Vegetables, Aubergine, Feta and Tomato Stacks with Parmesan 'Snaps' and Danish Layer Cake), meals here are simply heaven. Using fresh salads and herbs from its own garden, and serving homemade bread freshly baked in the camp's own traditional outdoor pizza oven, you will feel absolutely spoiled.
