Description

Offbeat Safaris pride themselves on providing guests with an exclusive experience in remote wildlife areas. Offbeat Meru Camp epitomises this important goal. The camp is small, traditional and located on the edge of Meru National Park in the Bisanadi National Reserve.

Almost bought to its knees by heavy poaching in the 80's and 90's Meru National Park is now thriving. It is once again home to the big five, after the recent re-introduction of Rhino, as well as a great number of other species including Grevy's Zebra, Reticulated Giraffe, Leopard, Gerenuk and Lesser Kudu. The park has 13 rivers which flow through the area encouraging a spectacular variety of birdlife. Immortalised by Joy Adamson in her book 'Born Free' and with only 2 lodges the likelihood of seeing anyone else while you stay here is small - you feel you have the park to yourself.

Hosted by head guide Adrian Allan, the camp has the ideal level of comforts. The camp consists of only 6 tents - 3 twin and 3 double. Each tent is furnished with a large iron bed, its own en-suite bathroom, traditional bucket shower and flushing loo. In addition, there is 24 hour solar lighting in the tents, while the rest of the camp is lit by traditional 'tilly' lamps. Informal dining is hosted in the mess tent or around the campfire. There is also a spacious 'mess' tent with comfortable sofas, a writing table and bar.

Days are tailored to suit guest's requirements. Activities include day and evening game drives; walking safaris with armed guides; bush breakfasts, picnics and sundowners; fly fishing in the local rivers. This area of Kenya gets quite hot during the dry season. After an active morning in the bush there's no better feeling than coming back to camp and cooling off in the stunning infinity swimming pool watching the wildlife as it comes to drink from the Bisanadi River below you.
