Elsa's Kopje Game Viewing and Activities

Meru National Park is a Kenyan forest reserve located 350km from Nairobi, east of Meru town. It is one of Kenya's lesser known parks, covering an area of 87 044 hectares. Meru National Park has abundant rainfalls which results in tall grass and lush swamps which make it difficult to spot game. The park has a wide range of wildlife including elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, black rhino and hippo. Buffalo, oryx, Oribi, zebra, giraffe, hartebeest, impala, kudu, mongoose, warthog, dik dik, civet, caracal, wild dog, baboons, hyena and vervet monkeys can also be spotted. Meru National Park is also to home to an abundance of birdlife that includes Pel's fishing owl, Peter's finfoot which inhabits the Murera and Ura Rivers, kingfishers, rollers, starlings, bee-eaters and numerous weavers to mention a few. Helped by the International Fund of Animal Welfare, the Kenya Wildlife Service restored Meru National Park from near ruin to one of the most promising tourist destinations in East Africa. This has also helped solve the park's poaching problems of the last decade.
