Elsamere Lodge Naivasha Kenya

Joy Adamson said of Elsamere: It would be impossible to imagine a more attractive site for a home. The former home of Joy and George Adamson, Elsamere has a museum housing the Adamsons’ collection of books and paintings, as well as memorabilia from the film Born Free.

On the shores of Lake Naivasha, Elsamere is home to a variety of wildlife and flora, and over 200 bird species, including fish eagles, pelicans, flamingos and kingfishers. Guided nature and bird walks are available, as are boat rides on the lake. Visits to Hell’s Gate National Park, Mt Longonot, Crater Lake and Lake Nakuru National Park can be arranged.

There are 8 cottages in the gardens, each with double or twin bedroom, en-suite bathroom and a veranda with a view of Lake Naivasha. The main house, containing the Adamsons’ furniture and silverware, is decorated with Joy’s paintings. Meals, prepared with fresh, local produce, are served on the veranda.

The Elsamere Field Study Centre, supported by Elsa Trust and Elsamere, educates young people about conservation and promotes environmental awareness and development education. The centre has 4 twin rooms and 4 dorms, together sleeping 62 students. Visitors are welcome to visit the centre to see conservation activities in progress.
