Elewana Elsa’s Kopje - Meru National Park

Elsa s Cottage View from private veranda

Elewana Elsa’s Kopje remains one of the most elegant lodges in Africa, located in one of the most spectacular settings.  Nestled into Mughwango Hill, the lodge enjoys panoramic views over the Meru plains from almost any point within the grounds. Every cottage offers the perfect ‘room-with-a-view’, uniquely designed and crafted to incorporate the natural features of the rocky hillside. An elegant and comfortable lounge and dining area, gorgeous infinity pool, and stunning sundowner viewpoint make Elewana Elsa’s Kopje the ultimate safari destination. Unshamedly romantic and beautifully styled; a rugged, remote wilderness.

Meru’s rich wildlife diversity includes rare species specific to northern Kenya, such as Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, lesser kudu, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, Beisa Oryx; over 450 bird species, as well as buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard and cheetah. And, with 13 permanent rivers flowing through the Park, hippos and crocodiles are regularly seen too. Meru National Park is a place of spectacular and dramatic scenery, with its ancient granite kopjes and breath-taking views across to the Nyambeni Range and Mount Kenya beyond.

Elewana The Manor at Ngorongoro - Karatu

TheManor Exterior Main Manor House 2

As unique in character as its idyllic locale, this Cape-Dutch style homestead provides a relaxing and stylish ambiance. Elewana The Manor at Ngorongoro, with its luxurious cottages and magnificent Manor House, brings "old-world" grandeur to a green and lush setting. Think cigars and brandy, elegant fine dining, and post-dinner snooker.

Elewana The Manor is one of the most lavish properties on the safari circuit; the rooms are cottage suites within the manicured gardens, and each suite has a sitting room, fireplace and enormous bathroom. A luxurious safari base with a spa, swimming pool and stable of horses to explore the surrounding coffee plantations and countryside. The Manor also arranges special picnics and sundowners within the estate and coffee tours for those interested in learning more about Tanzania's famous coffee trade.

The Manor is in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, containing the Ngorongoro Crater, which is often called 'Africa's Eden' and the '8th Natural Wonder of the World'. We are the only property currently able to provide a fully catered meal on the Crater floor. This area is without a doubt one of the most beautiful parts of Tanzania, steeped in history and teeming with wildlife.
