Elegant Eco Cottages
For many years Kenya’s best kept secret, the untamed wilderness of Meru National Park, is an area made famous by the film ‘Born Free’ and George Adamson’s lions.
The lodge itself is invisible to the eye as you approach and each of the 9 individually built cottages are luxuriously appointed and are the ultimate ‘room with a view’. Paved paths lit by lamps at night lead you to your generous cottage which is romantically swathed in netting. The bathrooms are sumptuous and there is a sense of space, style and pure relaxation. The infinity pool looks out across the plains, perfect for chilling out after a game drive or guided walk in the bush.
Activities include game drives in open-sided safari Land Rovers, driven by knowledgeable driver-guides, all of whom are members of the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association. Guided walks are led by your Guide and accompanied by a Ranger.Other attractions include bush breakfasts, 'sundowners', visits to the Tharaka tribal village on the southern boundary of the Park, and excursions into the nearby rhino sanctuary.
The game is shy but plentiful and truly wild.The Kenya Wildlife Service has recently released elephant & rhino into the Park to restock the game levels. Lions and Leopards are regularly heard and seen around Mughwango Hill.
