Elsa’s Kopje, Kenya

Named after the lioness made famous in the novel ‘Born Free’, Elsa’s Kopje is an award winning lodge in the heart of Kenya, known as one of the best spots on the continent to view rhino in the wild.

Nestled seamlessly into the Mughwango Hill, Elsa’s Kopje is built to be at one with its surroundings and provide visitors with a serene atmosphere, making this the perfect romantic getaway for couples.

Elsa’s Kopje offers guests game drives, river fishing and guided walks through the local landscapes, but for anybody who wants to relax closer to the comfort of their room there is the hotel’s infinity pool. Built into the side of the hill, the views over the Kenyan plains are absolutely unmissable and, as the pool has a bar service, you don’t even need to leave the comfort of the water to enjoy a cocktail while the sun sets.
