Meru National Park

Meru Kenya  

The lovely, isolated and virtually untouched treasure that is the Meru national park, home to Elsa, the lioness of the "Born Free" fame, to which she was returned to the wild by Joy Adamson in the 1950s, is a remote, lush green series of thick forests, rolling hills and an endless series of streams and rivers. The sharp contrast to the otherwise arid and dry land, it does possess tracts of acacia and thorn bush, ideal for exploring wildlife. The bird life in Meru is also spectacular, with the blue-legged Somali ostriches, ground hornbills, secretary birds, Bateleur eagles, oxpeckers, egrets, starlings, bee-eaters and starlings in profusion. Game viewing in Meru is extremely rewarding. Lions are often seen on high rocky kopjes, and large herds of buffalos and elephants, leopards, cheetahs and giraffe, oryx,hartebeest and gazelle are easily spotted. The lesser kudu is also found in this area.         

Unashamedly romantic and beautifully styled, Elsa’s Kopje is sculpted into Mughwango Hill, above the site of George Adamson’s original camp where he raised and released orphan lions, long before conservation became fashionable. Each cottage is crafted around the rocks, with a large bedroom, open sitting room, veranda and spacious bathroom, each with breathtaking views.
Guests can enjoy inimitable seclusion in the vast expanse of Meru National Park, boasting 870km² , the equivalent of 215,000 acres, of authentic African landscape. The park offers a thriving rhino sanctuary, and is famous for large elephant herds, hippo, lion, and birdlife; Meru National Park is recognised as having more diversity of animal species than any other park in East Africa.
