Born Free! Few visit Meru, which only enhances its stunning scenic beauty that includes small rivers shaded by dense riverine forest as well as raffia and doum palms. This remote area is where Joy and George Adamson reared and maintained a friendship with the lioness Elsa, made by famous by the movie Born Free. As you land on the tiny airstrip you might spot a surprised napping cheetah or big-eared bull elephant charging away. Home to the rare northern desert species of beisa oryx, zebra, giraffe, rhinos and a myriad of colorful birds, you may also meet mating lions, lurking leopards, and cheetahs on the chase!
