Rhino River camp is a beautiful place in a lovely, relaxing setting. Very off the beaten track! The tents are lovely, comfortable and well appointed; the staff is very nice and welcoming, the food is wonderful and overall we had a very enjoyable weekend there.

It was a really amazing experience - our 2 last nights in Kenya after a safari trip to Samburu which was perfect in every way... If you never slept near a waterfall you will never understand. Beautiful scenery, hard to describe...A nice spacious tent with a stunning view on the waterfall only a few steps from your terrace. Lovely birds...

We have lived in Nairobi for over a year now and try to get out most weekends. We have been to many tented camps and lodges around Kenya, but have to say Rhino River Camp in Meru is in a different league. The design is contemporary, but sympathetic to it's surroundings, comfortable and unpretentious. The tents are gorgeous, spacious and...

Once again the luxurious room set in the magnificent raffia palms was incredible, the cuisine exquisite and the service impeccable! We were there with our 4 1/2 yr old son and 3 1/2 month son and all of us were made to feel welcome. Mom and Dad especially enjoyed the romantic dinners at our own table under the starlit sky......

Thanks to the team at Rhino River Camp for a truly unforgetable experience.It will forever more remain the place where we got the news of our first child.

We enjoyed this luxury, tented camp enormously. Italian Andrea Maggi (owner, biologist, documentary producer, Africa expert, was a perfect host in a perfect environment and a good conversationalist. He was always at hand but also discreet. Christina, his manager was also super. The staff was attentive and everyone seemed genuinely friendly with sweet Meru smiles, but they were also discreet....

We visited in November. Lots of animals with their young in the park. The siting of the camp's tents next to the river and under the trees was spot on. They were private (we couldn't see our neghbour's tents), large and had comfy, king size beds. Beware, sleeping next to a river tends to make you think it's raining all...

A lovely quaint camp. The tents are superb, seriously comfortable beds, the situation magical, the staff are really helpful and Meru Park is wonderful and uncrowded. It was so nice to go to sleep to sound of monkeys, baboons and bush babies calling. However during our stay something wasn't quite right. The hot water didn't work in our tent (apparently...
