The most significant feature of Elsa’s, apart from the views that stretch for years and the perfect tranquility, is the staff and their attitude in the camp. The camp makes a point of growing most of its own produce and so boasts a wonderful selection of fresh vegetables with which to cook. It is this attention and care that makes this lodge what it is. From a gaming point of view, it is true that Meru is still yet to rank up with the Mara…but it is certainly getting better and better as the years go by and it is still mentioned as a favourite by the “old hands” who can be found guiding throughout Kenya. A few days in this lodge is a real treat.
