At this safari accommodation, you’ll have the Meru National Park to yourself. This is increasingly rare on safari and a much sought after feature. Elsas Kopje is perched on a rocky outcrop (kopje) which affords the most spectacular views of the volcanic plains of Meru. You’ll find yourself lingering over your morning coffee as you take in this mesmerising outlook.
Your East African safari at Elsas Kopje will be unforgettable. It is the type of place that guests return to again and again. There is a great sense of history here in connection with the Born Free book and George Adamson’s original camp just below Elsas Kopje. Game viewing activities are exciting and explorers will be in their element discovering the wonders of this unspoilt gem.
In between game viewing activities and excursions you can savour the high comfort and welcoming atmosphere of the camp. Local and international dishes combine with delicious North Italian cuisine, homemade pasta, just baked bread and fresh salads from the garden – not forgetting the addictive Danish Layer Cake. Swim in the pool, have a massage and just relax.
