Meru & Mount Kenya

KENYA


TRAVEL TO THE LANDS OF THE ADVENTUROUS MERU

Moving northward from Nairobi and into the central part of Kenya, we have the county of Meru, Meru National Park, and Mount Kenya - the homelands of the Ameru tribes.

Meru National Park is known, and often famed, as the setting for the book “Born Free” by John Adamson - a story of a lifetime dedicated to wildlife research. It is remote, the terrain can be rugged, which we like, vegetation is mostly wood grasslands and thorny bush lands, and rainfall in this semi-arid region is sporadic.

As a destination it was very popular in the 60’s and 70’s, and became less so as widespread poaching during the 80’s took its toll. The park has since recovered well, and we recommend it for those looking for something off the beaten track, or in journeys combined with other wildlife areas in Kenya. It is a great stretch of land, although don’t expect quite the same level of game sightings that you will find in the Maasai Mara or Amboseli, the principal parks of Kenya. Elsa’s Kopje, named after the lioness Elsa, is a tasteful little retreat set into the mountainside of Mount Meru that is well worth a look.


EXPLORE MOUNT KENYA

Drive westward from the town of Meru and you get to Mount Kenya. This is a popular destination for trekkers and hikers, although don’t underestimate the size of the task - it is not for the feint hearted! It is also one of the few places on earth where icecaps are found on the equator.
