Meru National Park covers 1800 sq kms and is the core of an ecosystem that includes Kora, Bisanadi, North Kitui and Rahole Reserves, an additional over 5000 sq kms of wilderness. The Park has enormous diversity of habitat and wildlife, from cool forests at 3400 ft to the west, dropping down to 1000 ft semi-desert plains with giant baobab and commiphora trees. It has thirteen clear spring fed rivers lined with palms and riverine forest, and home to basking hippo. This is lion and elephant country, but also Meru has many rare species including caracal, the beautiful Lesser Kudu, aardwolf, and over 400 species of birds. The Park also has an 84 sq km rhino sanctuary housing over 60 black and white rhinos.
Each cottage is crafted around the rocks, with a large bedroom, open sitting room, veranda, and spacious bathroom, each with breathtaking views. Guests can enjoy inimitable seclusion in the vast expanse of Elsa's Kopje, boasting 870km squared, the equivalent of 215,000 acres of authentic African landscape.
The camp is made up of 8 luxurious cottages built from caramel Canvas and hardwood and is set on raised wooden platforms from where you can watch the gentle flow of the Kindani River. This makes your experience at Rhino River camp truly magical.
