Best Sustainable African Safari Parks
Meru National Park (Kenya)
During the 1970s, the park was hugely popular among the tourists, but it took a disastrous decline in the late 1980s as poaching was heavily practiced. The park has a wide range of wild animals like African bush elephant, African leopard, Cheetah, Eastern Black Rhinoceros, Southern White Rhinoceros, Grevy’s Zebra, Lions, Hippopotamus and more.
It is a well-known park in the country where reputed conservationists George Adamson and Joy Adamson raised Elsa – the Lioness that became popular due to the famous the award winning movie Born Free. After the restoration between 2000 and 2005 by Kenyan Wildlife Service and International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), Meru is now one of the best popular parks in the country. A small rocky hill named Elsa’s Kopje Camp situated at the heart of the park made heavy contributions to the Meru National Park with the conversation activities. The camp also appointed locals as the staff to take care of the park’s daily routines in order to sustain the habitats.
