Main description of Offbeat Meru
A traditional camp with all the luxuries of home...stunning interiors, amazing hosting, delicious food and to top it all off our extremely talented guides will show you a wealth of wildlife the likes you have never seen before. Offbeat Meru is located on the Bisanadi River on the edge of the Meru National Park. This park is one that has been long forgotten by the mass tourism trade and thus is a little diamond in the rough. With a wealth of wildlife ranging from lions to rhinos and a myriad of activities including fishing in the Bisanadi and Tana rivers there is never a dull moment at Offbeat Meru.

Activities at Offbeat Meru
Boran Cultural Centre
Visiting the Boran Cultural Centre gives a fascinating insight into African community life and is a visit well worth making
With so many clear rivers that weave through the area, fishing is a popular and often very fruitful past time from Offbeat Meru Camp!
Game Drives (day & evening)
We offer unlimited game drives in custom designed 4x4 safari vehicles, with open sides and roof hatches. These vehicles are designed to optimize game viewing and photography.
Drives can be arranged at any time, with early morning and evenings being the most popular times to view the wildlife.
Drives tend to be anything from 2-5 hours, often meeting our team out in the bush for breakfast or brunch under a shady tree.
All our driver guides are highly qualified silver rated guides (who also have a spotter with them) and wherever possible we will allocate guests their own vehicle during their stay with us.
After sundowners in the bush, driving back as darkness descends, often provides our guests with some wonderful nocturnal sightings too!
Meru National Park is fortunate enough to host a huge rhino sanctuary that is home to 50+ black and white rhino. This is a must-do for any guest at Offbeat Meru Camp
Many guests like to get out of their vehicle and stretch their legs. Walking is a fantastic way to see the bush and take in the 'smaller' aspects of the bush like tracking, plants, spore, and insects. Walks vary from 1-2 hours with an armed ranger in the Bisinadi Reserve that borders the National Park.
