Overview

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.

  • 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.

  • The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
    There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
    Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
    Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

  • We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
    Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
