Once part of Kenya’s old Northern Frontier District, Meru is one of the least visited of all Kenya’s national parks. This is a spectacular land of kopjes, streams, baobab trees and riverine forest which is home to flourishing wildlife populations.

Why visit Meru ?

  • Stunning scenery in a spectacular, isolated wilderness setting
  • Home to northern Kenya game such as gerenuk & lesser kudu
  • Originally the home of Joy & George Adamson
  • Game drives, bush walks & bush picnics away from the crowds

Meru is an area of outstanding natural beauty and to walk with a professional guide through the bush, stopping en route for sundowners’ on a rocky outcrop, is to experience the raw, wild Africa at its most alluring. Meru was also the former home of George & Joy Adamson who helped to return orphaned lion cubs to the wild, in particular Elsa of Born Free fame.

Big game includes elephant, buffalo, reticulated giraffe, Grant’s gazelle and gerenuk, as well as increasing numbers of lion, cheetah, leopard and caracal. Hippos and crocodiles are resident in the streams and rivers.
