Offbeat Meru Camp Nairobi, Kenya

KENYA

Is situated right along the equator, on the eastern coast of the African continent. While much of northeastern Kenya is a flat, bush-covered plain, the remainder of the country encompasses pristine beaches, scenic highlands and lake regions, the Great Rift Valley, and the magnificent Mount Kenya. As the birthplace of Safari (Swahili for a journey), It is still the primary focus of all adventure travel in Africa. It is one of the finest – and undoubtedly the most famous – safari destinations in the world.

NAIROBI

Located on the edge of the rich agricultural region of the Central Highlands, Nairobi is the capital city of Kenya, the most developed country in East Africa. It is the largest city between Cairo, Egypt, in north Africa, and Johannesburg, South Africa. Nairobi has sprung from swampland into Africa’s twentieth-century mecca for adventurers and colonials.  Today, it’s Kenya’s skyscraper-safari capital, juxtaposing the rare black rhino against a modern cityscape in Nairobi National Park, and protecting its once-poached elephants and giraffes in city wildlife centers. The city has a cosmopolitan flair that combines African, Asian, European, and Middle Eastern cultures.

Best time to visit

Although Kenya’s varied environments experience a wide variety of climate conditions, the temperature remains comfortably warm year-round. Much of Kenya experiences heavy rainfall from March to May and, to a lesser extent, from October to December. The best time for most outdoor activities (including safari and mountain climbing) is during the dry season (June-September).

Take full-day game drives in custom-built Land Cruisers. Experience bush breakfast, picnics and the famous Kenyan sundowner. Evening walks with armedguards. Fishing in the local rivers and visits to the local Boran community

Offbeat Meru Camp is small, traditional and located on the edge of Meru National Park in the Bisanadi National Reserve, overlooking the Bisanadi River with beautiful riverine forest. The camp consists of only six tents, each furnished with a large iron bed, its own en-suite bathroom, traditional hot bucket showers and flushing loo. 2014 is to see the inclusion of a new family tent with two bedrooms, which allow parents to share the tent with their children. The tents are solar-lit while the rest of the camp is lit by traditional ’tilly’ lamps.

Informal dinners are hosted in the mess tent or around the campfire, adjacent to which are a spacious living-room tent with comfortable sofas, a writing table and a bar. Offbeat Safaris have a collection of unique camps and lodges in the Masai Mara, Meru National Park, the Great Rift Valley, the Kenyan Coast and in the Laikipia region of Northern Kenya. Some love its smallness and exclusivity, and some love the uncorrupt wildness that the Meru Camp reeks of. They all it is a must-visit family An eveing at Meru camp destination.
