A set of ‘experimental’ lodges in the Mughwango Hills, these enchanting cottages blend into the landscape, and you can see and hear the wildlife all around you.

Elsa’s Kopje has been awarded “Silver Level” by the internationally recognized Ecotourism society in recognition of its high level of environmental responsibility; and it was the first lodge in Kenya to receive an eco-rating.
The lodge consumes a minimum amount of energy through investments in LED and energy saving bulbs, solar water heaters and power to supplement the generator, limiting diesel generator use to only 6 hours per day. To limit their carbon footprint, wherever possible, fresh produce is sourced from the farmers on the borders of the park and local traders and timber used by the camp is taken from renewable sources. Trash is responsibly disposed of or recycled and separated; glass is sold to the recycling plant in Nairobi.
