Meru National Park
Meru National Park. This Park is the cornerstone of the Meru conservation area which includes the adjacent Kora national park, Bisanadi, Mwingi, and North Kitui national reserve (which are closed)
covering the lowland plains east of Meru town. Abundant rainfall and numerous watercourses support the forest, bushes, swamps, and tall grasses which provide habitat for the herbivores and their predators.
This is one of the most geographically diverse parks with more vegetation cover than wild animals but with patience or more than a day tour, one could spot elephants, lions, leopards, and cheetah with lesser kudus, elands, waterbucks, gazelles, and oryxes. Buffaloes, reticulated giraffe, and Grevy’s zebras are common while monkeys, crocodiles, and a plethora of bird species including the palm nut vulture and Marshall Eagle will be found in the dense vegetation along the watercourses.
