Meru National Park is part of the domain made famous by the writings of Joy Adamson. Meru is a savanna National Park located along the Tana river. The North Western sector of the park is hilly, with rich volcanic soils, yet towards the East  the land flattens and grey alluvial volcanic soils appear. The park is crossed by numerous permanent streams, draining from the Nyambenes and flowing in parallel between tongues of lava. As well as the many streams that cross it, the Meru National Park is bounded by three large rivers: the Tana to the South, the Ura to the South West and the Rojeweru to the East. A section of the park has been designated as a wilderness area in which there are no roads.

Guest Testimonial

Our travel consultant Robin was excellent; he was able to answer all our questions and gave us valuable guidance on what to take on our trip. Our travel documents arrived well in advance of our trip and Robin kept in touch right until the time of our departure. We couldn't have asked for anything more.
