After an early wakeup call and a quick breakfast you will be transferred to the nearby Wilson Airport in time for your scheduled flight to Meru National Park and the beauty of Elsa’s Kopje. Meru is one of Kenya’s lesser known national parks but is full of intrigue and game. Elsa’s Kopje sits on a hill overlooking the park, each of its carefully constructed cottages has been finished to the highest standard giving you the best possible start to your safari. After checking in and exploring the many ‘hidden gems’ of the Lodge, lunch is served on the grass by the pool with the whole of Meru spread out in front of you. An afternoon game drive presents the perfect opportunity to get a taste of the safari life you will be living over the coming days. Pre-dinner drinks at the lodge are included in a welcome rest before dinner is served under the stars.

Your second day in Meru brings with it an early wakeup call along with freshly brewed coffee and homemade cookies before you head off on a game drive for after which you will return later to the lodge for breakfast. After breakfast there is plenty of time to relax whether it’s by the pool or in the central mess area before lunch. The thought of a massage after lunch might be too tempting an offer to resist so enjoy one before heading out for your afternoon game drive.
