Meru National Park - Born Free
Meru National Park was made famous by conservationists George and Joy Adamson, and the film based on their book Born Free, the famous story of Elsa the lioness.
Meru is a park of great scenic beauty, featuring 13 rivers and supporting a wide range of diverse habitats. It is a paradise for birdwatchers and home to several rare bird species. A section of the park has been designated a wilderness area with no roads, which adds to the air of wild, remote seclusion that is characteristic of Meru National Park.
