Meru National park - giraffes seen in the park

Meru National Park

Remote and rugged, Meru National Park is one of Kenya's little visited national parks, though this is due not to a lack of attractions but more because of the parks previous insecurity and distance from Nairobi. The park is now generally safe and free of poachers, and offers the visitor an unspoilt and diverse wildlife location.

The wildlife and vegetation are rich in diversity. The park consists of jungle, coursing rivers, verdant swamp, rolling grasslands and even gaunt termite towers - the wildlife is equally diverse with good sightings of the big Cats and most of the other animals which are the major draws of a safari tour.
