Elsa’s Kopje

Top choice bandas in Meru National Park

Plenty of hotels claim to blend into their environment, but Elsa’s did so in such a seamless manner that the bar on chic ecosuites was permanently raised. Carved into Mugwangho Hill, these highly individualised ‘three-walled’ rooms open out onto views that The Lion King animators would have killed for.

Stone-hewn infinity pools plunge over the clifftops, while rock hyraxes play tag in your private garden. These features come with intense luxury pampering, wildlife drives, walking safaris and an utterly marvellous sense of being in a stunning, exclusive, remote corner of wildest Africa.
