3 Days Meru National Park Safari
Meru National Park Safari – Explore wildest park in Kenya in 3 Days. Accommodation Options include Rhino River Camp, Elsa Kopje or Ikweta Safari Camp depending on budget.
Meru National Park
Meru is a lot less busy than some of Kenya’s more popular parks, and has an unspoilt feel. All of the Big Five are present. Elephant and buffalo are very common, and there is an enclosed rhino sanctuary containing both black and white rhino. The park is extremely scenic with tall doum palms growing along the park’s many watercourses.
After all the time you’ve spent planning and dreaming about going on safari, this is where it finally starts. Your guide will meet you and explain everything you need to know and answer any questions you might have. And then we’ll go out on safari together.
As one of the lucky few to visit Meru National Park, you can expect a wonderfully quiet safari experience. While you’re here, you should see lions and rhinos, and there’s also a good chance that you’ll encounter elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, buffaloes and wildebeests. Enjoy the baobab trees and doum palms that line many of the (often dry) rivers here.
