Barely visible on approach, Elsa’s Kopje blends seamlessly into its surrounds. Perched high on top of Mughwango Hill, this superb lodge stands as tribute to Elsa, the orphaned lioness in the biographical film “Born Free”.
Nine superlative stone-and-thatch cottages are crafted around the natural features of the hill, each with a spacious ensuite bathroom, sitting room, dining area and breathtaking views of the savannah below. Elsa’s Private House, with its two double rooms, sitting room, veranda and private plunge pool, is ideal for families or a large group.
Lamp-lit pathways lead towards the main guest areas, which include a comfortable open bar, sitting room and dining room. Delicious sundowners can be enjoyed at the lodge’s sparkling swimming pool, which offers truly awe-inspiring vistas.
Activities include exhilarating twice-daily game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, guided nature walks, bush meals, day excursions to the Tana River and visits to a local village.
