4 stars

Elsa's Kopje
Elsa's Kopje is hidden away on a rocky hillside overlooking Meru National Park. The camp is close to the site where George and Joy Adamson's released the lioness Elsa to the wild, the event famous in the movie Born Free. Each of the 10 luxurious cottages features stone and thatch crafted around the natural features of the hill and can be described as the ultimate ‘room with a view’. The swimming pool looks out across the plains making it the perfect spot to relax after a game drive or guided walk in the bush.

Joy's Camp
Joy’s Camp is built on the site of Joy Adamson’s tented home in Shaba National Reserve. This camp offers an authentic wildlife experience combined with the comfort of a luxury-tented camp. The camp overlooks a large natural spring where elephant, lion, giraffe and other wildlife jostle for watering rights. The 10 canvas bedrooms offer breathtaking views of the surrounding hills and are decorated with handmade crafts and the vibrant fabrics crafted in the nearby villages. Each tent also has its own private verandah, the ideal place to relax and soak up the raw beauty of Shaba.

Cottars 1920's
Cottars 1920s Safari Camp is situated in the Masai Mara, bordering the Serengeti and Loliondo reserves in an exclusive 250,000 acre wildlife area. It offers the true essence of 'safari', reminiscent of the 1920s - an era of romance, adventure and elegance. The camp accommodates 12 guests in spacious white canvas tents, which feature original safari antiques, luxurious furnishing, private en suite bathrooms and an outdoor veranda. Cottars’ guests can enjoy game drives, guided walks, night drives and complimentary massages. Cottars 1920s Safari Camp offers a Kenyan holiday of sophistication and elegance.
