Offbeat Meru Camp, Kenya

Definitely offbeat, you’ll find yourself thinking as you sit outside your safari tent, sundowner in hand, listening to the Meru’s noctural inhabitants preparing for a night in the wild.

Offbeat but endlessly interesting, and surprisingly comfortable. This camp has only six very well equipped tents; which means you’re assured of a concentrated, under-canvas, safari experience. Plus a touch of luxury.

But the wildlife is the real point and in Meru and Bisanadi National Reserve you can ‘bag’ the big five. Expect to spot black and white rhino, reticulated giraffe, lion (you are in Born Free territory, after all), oryx, hippo, buffalo and buck, gerenuk and kudu. Even cheetah and leopard. Offbeat will take you off-track - tailoring your safari experience to your expectations – for the authentic sensation of Africa in the wild.
