Meru

An idyllic oasis amidst a mighty rift

Meru takes its name from the Ameru, a Bantu ethnic group. It is the name of the tribe, the town and one of Kenya’s least visited but most beautiful national parks, where numerous habitats play host to a spectacular diversity of wildlife.

The park is filled with wooded grasslands, lush swamps, and bushland inhabited by elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, black rhino, and many more. It’s a real wilderness and you’ll get the most out of it if you combine your game drives with a couple of nights of fly camping, waking up each morning in some of the most unspoilt and little visited, rugged and remote areas of the country.
 
Wherever you are in Meru, the views of Mt. Kenya are bound to impress. Finish your visit with a trip to Adamson’s Falls for a truly magical experience.

Elsa's Kopje

Elsa’s Kopje is an idyllically situated boutique safari lodge in the Meru National Park. It was opened in 1999 by Virginia McKenna, and the eponymous Elsa is the lioness star of Born Free. The lodge has been credited with single handedly reviving the fortunes of this beautiful national park.
