Meru Holidays

A visit to Kenya's Meru National Park will give you a look at the wild side of nature, with its diverse terrain of dense jungle, coursing rivers, verdant grasslands and swamps. 

Made famous by conservationists George and Joy Adamson and Elsa the lioness in the 1960s book and subsequent film Born Free, Meru has retained a wonderfully rugged ambience.

Take a guided game drive to discover the unspoilt beauty of this African wilderness and see a dazzle of Grevy's zebras peeking from grasslands, lions dozing in the shade or – if you're lucky – a rhino sipping from a sparkling river. 

Call our Destination Team to discuss your wildlife aspirations and they will tailor make the safari itinerary of your dreams.
