Elsamere lodge or camp is a haven for lovers of nature, set in Acacia forest on the banks of Lake Naivasha in Kenya’s Rift Valley. It is the former home of the late Joy Adamson who, together with her husband George Adamson, became world famous for their pioneering conservation work and relationship with the lioness Elsa, as told in her best selling book and subsequent film, ‘Born Free’ and she did much of her writing at Elsamere up until her murder in 1980.

Her relationship with Elsa the lioness who she raised from a young cub and later successfully released back into the wild.

Elsamere house is traditional, it may not be as modern as the alternatives it makes up for the surrounding atmosphere and intimacy. Elsamere Lodge has only a handful of rooms and each has a real African feel. The lodge provides accommodation for 15-18 people in cottages set in the gardens around the main house. Adjoining it are the teaching rooms for schoolchildren to come and learn about conservation. Elsamere Lodge has its own jetty and boats.

Elsamere Lodge Guest may stay in the main house in the Joy Adamson bedrooms with wheelchair access. Elsamere Lodge cottages have en suite bathrooms, spacious and warm interior with a verandah providing you with views of Lake Naivasha.

Elsamere Lodge prides itself on its warm hospitality and home like atmosphere. The day starts with a hot breakfast and lunch is buffet style with plenty of outdoor tables and chairs for alfresco dining. Dinner is hosted each night and it is the perfect opportunity to get to know the guests, many of whom may be visiting researchers and conservationists. You will love the Garden Restaurant and dining room.
