Book Meru

Meru

Straddling the equator and bisected by 13 rivers and numerous mountain-fed streams.

Meru

Meru National Park is little visited and so utterly unspoilt, few places are comparable to the remote and rugged atmosphere found here. This sanctuary was once the home and is now the final resting place of Elsa the lioness whose life inspired Joy Adamson’s novel, Born Free. Elsa, an orphaned cub, was raised by the Adamson’s and later successfully released back into the wild. Straddling the equator, Meru park is bisected by 13 rivers and numerous mountain-fed streams, making it a green paradise compared to the dry savannah of Kenya’s other parks. It boasts diverse scenery from woodlands to wide open plains, meandering riverbanks, a landscape dotted by kopjes and rich volcanic soil deposits.

Unhindered by crowds of tourists, game-viewing in Meru National Park is an authentic and unique affair. The Big Five can be found roaming its savannahs and lush woodlands, although the elusive leopard and sprightly cheetah prefer to remain hidden if they can. The steeply inclining gradient and the peak of Mount Kenya can be seen from the park, providing a perfect backdrop to game drives, bush walks, and cruises along the Tana River and stopovers at Adamson’s Falls en route. Part of the reserve has been fenced off to create a sanctuary for 40 White Rhino and 20 Black Rhino, making this one of the best places in Kenya to see these endangered animals.
