Perched on top of a hill in Kenya’s Meru National Park, this luxury safari lodge is a great place to base your safari holiday. Hidden away in the acacia scrub, this delightful 11-room lodge exists in symbiosis with delicate ecology around it.
Well-appointed rooms and suites
At Elawana Elsa's Kopje, the thatched roof cottages and honeymoon suites all have open sides looking out onto the swimming pool area. Rooms are tastefully decorated in earthy tones and natural materials like brick and wood, and flowing linens which exude an easy sense of luxury. Elsa’s House, the largest accommodation at the camp, is entirely self-contained and is ideal for a family stay.
Head out for safari exploration
The main attraction on safari is clearly the wildlife. Driving out every day in a 4x4 vehicle, your knowledgeable guide can help you spot a range of beasts. Elawana Elsa's Kopje is perfectly placed for face to face encounters with the Big Five (elephant, rhinoceros, lion, buffalo, and leopard). Sightings of other creatures including giraffes, hippos and gazelles are also to be expected.
A nearby rhino sanctuary which was set up to reintroduce this endangered creature into Kenya is a popular option for travellers. Learn more about these magnificent animals and about the steps that are being taken to preserve them in the wild. Visits to local Masai villages are a great way to better understand the unique land you are visiting. Guided walking tours of the reserve are also popular with bird watchers. Over 400 species live in the reserve.
After a day roaming the wilds of the reserve, unwind at the pool with a cool beer or gin and tonic. Exchange tales of your adventures with other travellers. Every day is different on the reserve, who knows what encounters tomorrow will bring?

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
