Elsa’s Kopje is the ultimate romantic retreat in Meru, east-central Kenya. An ode to Elsa the orphaned lioness, Elsa’s Kopje is an elegant, professional lodge, offering an exclusive view of the unusual wildlife that calls Meru National Park home.
This camp is a place of luxurious solitude with everything you expect from a high quality safari. The communal areas of camp are sophisticated with aerial views of the plains and include an infinity swimming pool, outdoor dining areas and a spa treatment room.
Attracting less visitors than more touristy destinations in Kenya, Meru National Park has a wealth of rare wildlife including the naked mole rat and lesser Kudu as well as more popular leopard, lion, elephant and rhino. Certified guides lead twice daily game drives around the park to spot over 400 species as well as take in the beautiful views over the plains. In addition to game drives, walks, river fishing and visits to the Rhino sanctuary and the Tana River are also available. The staff here are extremely knowledgeable and make sure you get the most out of everything Meru has to offer.
This small accommodation is split into 11 cottage suites including a private house, family suite and 3 honeymoon suites. Each cottage is open fronted with beautiful hilltop views of the plains and a private deck to enjoy them from.
Whilst the camp is child friendly with a number of different accommodation options for families, we tend to include this in couples’ itineraries. The secluded position and the beautiful honeymoon suites makes this camp perfect for a romantic trip to the African bush.

Dear Lisa, We are now back home and had a fantastic time. All the arrangements went seamlessly, transport and hotels were great. Laikipia was amazing, a very personal experience and they did all they could to accommodate everything we wanted to do. The river location was fantastic and ideal for the children as they got to swim in it. It is somewhere we would all like to return to. There might not have been the numbers that you get on the Masai Mara however we got to see lions with cubs, two black leopards, a golden leopard and the wild dogs as well as a huge number of other animals and birds. Thank you for suggesting to stay for 4 nights, it was just the right amount of time. The tamarin Hotel was a good choice as we were able to eat at the Carnivore restaurant which was an experience. Mauritius was lovely and relaxing, just what we needed after a very active time in Laikipia. Accommodation and service was great. Weather was good for most of the time, a few showers over the last couple of days. Thank you once again for organising it all. Sally

It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
Kind regards, John

I had just the most incredible time on the climb.
The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.
George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.
