Even after the Genesis Project, where animals of other NPs have been supplied, its one of the rarely visited NPs. So you can enjoy the wilderness without crowds of tourists. A variety of landscapes (Galery Forests at the many rivers, thorny bush, savanna lpains. View...More

We went in april and didn't get to see many animals. A friend spotted a rhino, only because he has a keen eye. Very different terrain to Masai Mara. Maybe we went at the wrong time of the year, but we still enjoyed the whole...More

Meru National Park has more trees and shrubs than Mara and other parks, so spotting wildlife is a bit more of a challenge. But, with it's large rhino sanctuary, you are almost guaranteed to see rhinos (we saw 28 over our 2-day stay). Also lots...More

Really enjoyed our time in Meru National Park, particularly because it was so deserted - where is everyone?? From the huge families of elephants through the families of lion, from hippo pools through crocodile sightings and with variable backdrops depending on where you are in...More

Really loved this park! Saw lions, elephants, zebra, giraffe, rhino (in the sanctuary) and hippos, to name a few. What I particularly enjoyed was that this place was not touristy at all! During our game drives we rarely saw any other vehicles. It was lovely!

It was a long drive to meru national park with limited game.but we basically went to enjoy some heat and a dip in the swimming pool due to the cold weather in nairobi.

Meru is still a rather untamed wilderness in Kenya. Over three days of game spotting, we saw two other vehicles, so had it to ourselves. You have everything to see in Meru - birds, plains game and the big five. And we nearly saw everything!

Meru is more natural and less of a tourist trap. The lodges melt into the scenery, the tracks are part of the park. The community are aware of conserving what they have and although there is a fence you see it only as you... More
