Meru is the home of George and Joy Adamson, and their beloved lioness, Elsa, of Born Free fame. Meru National Park is wild, beautiful and one of the more remote Kenyan safari locations.
To the north East of Mount Kenya and straddling the equator, Meru is cut through by 13 river channels and numerous mountain-fed streams that create a particularly luscious oasis. Wide open plains and swamplands converge along wandering riverbanks that are adorned with Doum palms. The recently extended sanctuary for Black and White Rhino provides a superb opportunity to view these magnificent creatures.
