Meru National Park

The thick jungle of vegetation in Meru makes game viewing both challenging and rewarding. A wildlife safari through Meru involves tracking and locating game through a range of habitats.

The Hills and Kopjes make good game spotting outposts, and getting up high is the best way to scan the horizons for herds of game. Lions are known to also take advantage of this opportunity, and can be seen hunting on these slopes for buffalo or Oryx.

The waters of the Tana river and its many streams always attract plenty of wildlife. The thick riverine forests are the best places to locate game, and are excellent birding country. Large numbers of Reticulated Giraffe, Impala, Lesser Kudu and Eland can be found around these water sources.

The best time to see game in Meru is early morning and late afternoon. In the midday heat, most animals retreat to the cool of thick undergrowth and become invisible. Morning and afternoon game drives also allow you to witness the unforgettable African dawn and sunsets.


Meru has a choice of basic campsites with small bandas (huts) for hire. The park also has two lodges offering well appointed accommodation.
