Home » Destinations » National Parks » Meru National Park
Meru National Park is a Kenyan national park located in the northeastern part of the country. The park is known for its diverse wildlife, including elephants, lions, leopards, and over 350 species of birds. The park also features a variety of landscapes, including forests, grasslands, and wetlands. The park is also notable as the setting for the book and film “Born Free” which is based on the true story of George and Joy Adamson’s experiences raising an orphaned lion cub named Elsa. It is also home to the Murera and Ura Rivers which are known for their crocodiles and hippos. It’s a great place for a safari adventure and wildlife viewing.

Meru Game Park, which straddles the equator, is bisected by 13 rivers and other mountain-fed streams, making it a lush green oasis in comparison to Kenya's other parks.
