Overview of Elsa’s Private House

Sculpted into Mughwango Hill in the heart of Kenya’s Meru National Park,

Elsa’s Kopje Private House is a 2-bedroom villa boasting magnificent views of the African wilderness, especially from its incredibly romantic oval bathtub. Situated in Elsa’s Kopje, an area which is recognised as having a greater diversity of wildlife than any other park in East Africa and famous for its thriving rhino sanctuary, the house rests just above the site of George and Joy Adamson’s original camp where they raised and released orphaned lions, the most famous being the lioness, Elsa, of Born Free fame.

Crafted around the natural landscape of the hill and its jumble of rocks, Elsa’s Kopje Private House is luxurious and comfortable with two spacious bedrooms, open-plan living areas, an exclusive-use garden and a private infinity-edge swimming pool.

General Facilities

Elsa’s Kopje Private House is a seamless blend of natural wood, thatch, stone and comfortable furniture adorned with touches of classic Africa like softly glowing lanterns, billowing mosquito nets and rattan. A neutral palette allows the immense views to take centre stage and the combination of high beamed ceilings and open-fronted rooms allows cooling breezes to circulate through the house.

Elsa’s Kopje Private House is incredibly romantic with panoramic views, making it the perfect honeymoon or anniversary hideaway. Having two en suite bedrooms and a private pool, it is also suitable for small groups or families travelling with older children. Two extra beds can be added, for children under 16 years.

Swimming pool

Dining

Your private chef will consult with you about your preferred menu and meal times. Snacks, drinks and sundowners are served between meals, so you stay refreshed throughout your stay. Gather round for candlelit dinners on the verandah, or sunny picnics on the lawns. You may even be surprised with a breakfast out in the bush while on your morning game drive.

Expert Opinion

We know because we go
Lauren Johansson

Africa Safari Expert

The private house is arguably one of my favourite accommodations in Kenya! The bathroom has the best view around in my opinion. Soak away the safari dust in the deep tub overlooking the park, shower under the stars or take a dip in the pool. This house may have you staying in - more than going out on game drives - be warned! Sheer luxury to be enjoyed here!
