Accommodation Meru Nat. Park:
Wide variety of accommodation options available for all budgets (in the surrounding areas), including safari lodges, tented camps, private houses and campsites.
Recommended number of days:
Because of the relatively small park size, we feel a (full) ONE day safari is suitable for just the Meru National Park.
If you are interested in photography, the longer you stay the more chance of getting the ultimate photo.
Fika Safaris travel suggestion:
We would suggest to add on a few more days to see more of Kenya.
Meru Nat. Park works well when combined with Masai Mara or the Samburu, Buffalo Springs & Shaba.
Or finish your holiday relaxing on an exotic beach with water activities along the Kenyan coast.
