Meru National Park: Safaris

2 safaris to Meru National Park

Safaris that include Meru National Park are increasingly popular, even though the park as a whole is only visited by a tiny fraction of safari-goers. A glorious tract of verdant bush on the well-watered eastern side of Mount Kenya, Meru is cut through by numerous permanent streams and rivers, and features swamps and riverine woodland in its vegetation. Made famous as the region where the George and Joy Adamson released Elsa the lioness. Meru is now notable for having one of Kenya's foremost rhino sanctuaries, where black and white rhinos have bred successfully for many years. By staying at one of the few tented camps or lodges in the park, you can spend your safari watching the rhinos, pursuing the park's elephants, cheetahs, lions or handsome reticulated giraffe, or witnessing huge herds of buffalo trundling through the bush, all with no more than a handful of other visitors' vehicles in the area.
