Overview

We pride ourselves 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 in a stunning location overlooking the Bisanadi River with beautiful riverine forest.

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 re-introduction of black and white rhino (the park now boasts over 67 rhino in its large sanctuary), as well as a great number of other species including reticulated giraffe, oryx, gerenuk and lesser kudu. The huge buffalo herds and elephant are seen regularly. 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 two other lodges in the park, the likelihood of seeing anyone else while you stay here is small - you feel you have the park to yourself. The park also has a healthy lion population (no doubt some descendants of Elsa) as well as cheetah and leopard. 

Seasons – Offbeat Meru Camp closes for May & November

The camp consists of only six tents, each furnished with a large iron bed, its own en-suite bathroom, traditional hot bucket showers 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; the cooks here are quite brilliant. Adjacent to this is a spacious living room tent with comfortable sofas, a writing table and bar.
