Offbeat Meru Camp is a twelve-bedded semi-permanent camp situated just outside the park in Bisanandi National Reserve, set above the pretty Bisanandi River. Meru National Park offers visitors a chance to visit one of Kenya's most magical parks away from the masses. The park has a wide variety of landscapes and is dominated by savannah, but includes riverine forest and swamps. The park is bisected by thirteen rivers, which flow towards the Tana River in the south and rise in the Nyambene Hills to the west. The park has excellent game viewing opportunities, which include lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, black and white rhino, eland, gerenuk, beisa oryx, grant's gazelle, grevy's zebra, lesser kudu and reticulated giraffe as well as over two hundred and eighty species of birds.
The camps itself comprises six tents, three twins and three doubles. Being so small, it is ideal for those looking to stay at an informal camp with only a few other guests. Each tent is furnished with a huge iron bed, and has its own en-suite washing facility, with a simple bucket shower and flushing loo. In addition, there is twenty-four hour solar lighting in the tents, whilst the rest of the camp is lit by traditional tilly lamps. Informal dining is hosted in the mess tent or around the stunning swimming pool. There is also a spacious living room with comfortable sofas, a writing table and fully stocked bar. Activities at camp take the form of: day and evening game drives in fully equipped custom-designed Landrover's/Landcruisers, short walks, bush breakfasts and sundowners and fly-fishing.
