Elewana Elsa’s Private House
Elsa’s Private House in Meru is a stylish, exclusive hideaway set slightly apart from the lodge Elsa’s Kopje, and built very near to George Adamson’s original campsite in the heart of Meru National Park in Kenya. The lodge is named after the orphaned lioness reared by George and Joy Adamson and then released into the wild, and on whom the film “Born Free” was based.
Accommodation & Facilities
The private house at Elsa’s has one double and one twin room, both with en-suite bathrooms. There is a spacious living and dining area, leading outside to its own private swimming pool. Guests can choose to eat meals in the privacy of the house or, in the main dining area of Elsa’s Kopje lodge.
Wildlife & Activities
Whilst staying at Elsa’s Private House, wildlife drives through the park offer guests the chance to see lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, black and white rhino, and a myriad of birdlife. Meru National Park is home to a 84km² rhino sanctuary, with over 70 black and while rhinos resident, making Meru one of the best areas in Kenya to see rhinos in their natural habitat. For bird lovers, Meru offers over 450 recorded species. Fishing in the rivers, short walks on Mughwango Hill, excursions to Kora National Park, or rafting on the Tana River are other enjoyable activities available.
