Exclusive Fly-In Safari - Elsa's Kopje

Made famous by Born Free

Why not add a touch of luxury to your safari and fly to your chosen national park or game reserve? Built into the curves of Mughwango Rock with views over the vast plains of Meru National Park, Elsa's Kopje has just eight luxurious open-fronted cottages. Made famous by George and Joy Adamson's biographical film 'Born Free', this was the place where Elsa the lioness liked to relax and now you can do the same in the inviting infinity pool, before enjoying a delicious meal under the stars. You can add on a beach stay afterwards on the Kenyan Coast or on the nearby islands of Zanzibar & Pemba off Tanzania.
