Wildlife found in Meru National Park

The animals aren’t always as much in evidence here as they can be in some other national parks in Kenya, though in recent years the wildlife numbers have much improved and due to the absence of minibusses and Land Cruisers more than compensates, after visiting some of the less busy parks where animals can be spotted far away, Meru’s intimate, unusual landscape is quickly entrancing.

Tourists Attraction in Meru National Park

Vegetations, the land is always green and the landscape is relatively few and the most interesting wildlife are; Lions, cheetah, elephants, buffalos, reticulated giraffe, Gravy’s, zebra, black and white rhino.

The Rojewero river in Meru National Park

This is the largest river of all the Parks with twelve main streams, I an interesting watercourse, densely overgrown banks flash with birds and monkeys and darks waters ripple with hippos, and in large number and very visible herds of elephants, Buffalos, and reticulated Giraffe plus Ostrich.

Though the number tends to be up and lions which prey mainly on Meru’s big herds of buffalos and cheetah are increasingly seen when they are not hidden in a long grass-and the smaller grazers must have the nerve-wracking time of it here and a large number of leopards captured in the stock-raising lands of Laikipia have been released in the park in recent years, but the wild is very wary and you have little chances of seeing them.
