Elsa’s Kopje Meru -Lodges

Unashamedly romantic, Elsa’s Kopje- situated above the site of George Adamson’s camp from where he raised Elsa the orphaned lioness – is sculpted into the rocky outcrop of Mughwango Hill.
The spacious cottages, each with en suite bathroom and large open living room, have views from the private verandas across the adjacent plains.
