Meru

This equatorial region of mixed forests, crisscrossing rivers and open grasslands in the shadow of Mount Kenya supports a breathtaking array of wildlife. This equatorial region of mixed forests, crisscrossing rivers and open grasslands in the shadow of Mount Kenya supports a breathtaking array of wildlife.
Why Meru?
You may recognise Meru National Park as the setting of Born Free, the popular book by Joy Adamson published in 1960. Lioness heroine Elsa was raised in this idyllic setting and you can follow in her pawprints today. A safari in Meru is a true adventure – the swamps and bushland within this slice of wilderness are teeming with elephants, black rhino, hippos, cheetah, leopard, hundreds of species of birds and, of course, lions.

Immerse yourself in the nature of Meru with open vehicle game drives, or go on a dedicated birdwatching tour. Don’t miss a nature walk to Adamson Falls – a rocky, picturesque waterfall system. With Mount Kenya as the backdrop, Meru National Park is one of the most beautiful parts of this spectacular country.
