Meru National Park Kenya safari | Aardwolf Africa Safaris


 Meru National Park is located to the north of Mt. Kenya some 350 kms from Nairobi. With an area of 870 km², it is one of the best known National Parks in Kenya. It has abundant rainfall in the west of the park but tends to lessen towards the east part of the park. Hence the park offers dense riverine forests of doum and raffia palm and is mainly thorny bush land in the north, wooded grasslands in the west and open grassland in the rest.

Little visited it is utterly un-spoilt and quiet. Hence few places are comparable to the remote and rugged atmosphere found here. Animals found in Meru national park expected to be seen by visitors include the African bush elephant, Masai lion, African leopard, Tanzanian cheetah, eastern black rhinoceros, southern white rhinoceros, Grevy’s zebra, hippos, Bohor reedbucks, hartebeests, pythons, puff adders, cobras, buffalos and more than 427 species of birds. Again Meru National Park was one of the two areas in which conservationists George Adamson and Joy Adamson raised Elsa the Lioness made famous in the bestseller book and award winning movie Born Free. Elsa the Lioness is buried in this park and part of Joy's ashes were scattered on her gravesite. Meru National Park accommodation include Leopard Rock, Elsa Kopje, Rhino River Camp and Ikweta Safari Camp
