The small, blissfully peaceful Meru Camp is alongside the Bisandi reserve next to Meru National Park in central Kenya. Game viewing may not be so intense here as in some other locations but the serenity of this location in the wonderful Meru National Park is very special.

We would usually use this property on a flying safari and combining with a good bush camp in the Masai Mara region. There are walking and hiking activities in Meru and Bisandi with very low vehicle traffic in both and opportunities to see some unusual wildlife including; Imperial Zebras, reticulated giraffes, Somali ostriches, gerenuks and over 230 species of bird. Only a short drive away is the rhino sanctuary, an 8o sq/km area in which 60 rhino (including 40 white rhino) roam free. Sightings are very good and you often have the opportunity to take pictures at close range. You can also take day trips to the Kora National Reserve located 125km east of Mount Kenya which has Tanzanian cheetah, Masai lion, african bush elephant, various antelope and hyenas wandering across it's plains.

The camp comprises of seven tents of which one is a 'family unit ( a connecting double twin with en suite bathroom) each tent has a large double bed with an ensuite bathroom complete with flushing loo. The camp is personally hosted and is located in the shade of mature trees by a small stream and offers traditional safari accommodation with splendid views and a small infinity pool which looks over the river below.

  • Dear Lisa, We are now back home and had a fantastic time. All the arrangements went seamlessly, transport and hotels were great. Laikipia was amazing, a very personal experience and they did all they could to accommodate everything we wanted to do. The river location was fantastic and ideal for the children as they got to swim in it. It is somewhere we would all like to return to. There might not have been the numbers that you get on the Masai Mara however we got to see lions with cubs, two black leopards, a golden leopard and the wild dogs as well as a huge number of other animals and birds. Thank you for suggesting to stay for 4 nights, it was just the right amount of time. The tamarin Hotel was a good choice as we were able to eat at the Carnivore restaurant which was an experience. Mauritius was lovely and relaxing, just what we needed after a very active time in Laikipia. Accommodation and service was great. Weather was good for most of the time, a few showers over the last couple of days. Thank you once again for organising it all. Sally

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • I had just the most incredible time on the climb.

    The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.

    George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.
