Activities at Offbeat Meru

Boran Cultural Centre

Boran Cultural Centre

Visiting the Boran Cultural Centre gives a fascinating insight into African community life and is a visit well worth making

Fishing

Fishing

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)

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!

Rhino Sanctuary

Rhino Sanctuary

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

Walking

Walking

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.
