One of the lesser visited parks in Kenya, which means you basically have it to yourself with the exception of a handful of other visitors. There are only two lodges in the park, and it is a vast expanse of wilderness, mostly of seasonal scrub but also some very cool palms and other flora. The park hosts the big five, and large herds of elephants, both species of zebra, and a very impressive assortment of birds.

Meru National Park is a Kenyan Game park located east of Meru, 350 km from Nairobi. Covering an area of 870 km², it is one of the most famous known parks of Kenya. It has abundant rainfall, 635–762 mm in the west of the park and 305–356 mm in the east. The rainfall results in tall grass and lush swamps, which make it difficult to spot game. It has a wide range of wild beasts like elephant, hippopotamus, lion, leopard, cheetah, black rhinoceros and some rare antelopes.
