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.
