About Meru National Park Kenya Camping Safari
Our Meru National Park Kenya Camping Safari will have you drive through central highlands and slopes of Mt Kenya up North to Meru National Park. Meru National Park has all the essential ingredients for a classic safari destination, with some excellent prospects for seeing lions and rhinos, and a landscape that incorporates Hemingway-esque green hills, arid, Tsavo-like savannah and fast-flowing streams bordered by riverine forests, baobab trees and doum palms. The advantage of being one of Kenya’s best-kept secrets is plain to see – you’re likely to have much of it all to yourself. Brilliant on a magnificent scale, the Meru and Kora sister parks feature luxuriant jungle, coursing rivers, verdant swamp, khaki grasslands and gaunt termite cathedrals all under the sky’s great blue bowl. Little visited and utterly unspoilt, few places are comparable to the remote and rugged atmosphere found here. Visitors can see Grevy’s zebras, elephants, Bohor reedbucks, hartebeests, pythons, puff adders, cobras, buffalos and more than 427 recorded species of birds.
We pass by Meru Town on our way to Maua Town. Visit a Miraa farm, learn how this crop is grown and harvested. Have a taste if you wish to. Proceed to a nearby river, Ura River which feeds Meru National Park and visit its great waterfalls before proceeding to Meru National Park. We shall use the scenic Nairobi Meru Embu Maua Route on day one and return via Meru Nanyuki Highway giving us a chance to enjoy the great sceneries along both ways.
We shall be Camping at Meru National Park
We will enjoy inimitable seclusion in the vast expanse of Meru National Park, boasting 870km² , the equivalent of 215,000 acres, of authentic African landscape. The park offers a thriving rhino sanctuary, and is famous for large elephant herds, hippo, lion, and birdlife; Meru National Park is recognized as having more diversity of animal species than any other park in East Africa.
