This is an experience that we had long waited for and I can only describe this place as Kenya wrapped up like heaven. We were met at the airstrip by our guide for the next three and half days, George Kimaru. His beaming face and enthusiasm for this reserve was very apparent in the first hour of our game drive to Elsa's. On arriving we were shown to our room built simpathetically into the rock. This certainly was a room with a view, 180 degrees panaramic view out over the Savanna with George Adamsons camp directly below. The amenities were also superb. Everyone that we came into contact with were so happy and professionally helpful. We started every day with the sound of feet coming over the rope bridge and then a beamimg smile as we were delivered our morning cuppa and biscuits. Then up and off for an adventure. George showed us everything that Meru had to offer and we soon saw that it was not all just about Elsa, the reserve had far more to offer and he was thrilled to show it all to us. On returning we were always met by the Managers, Phil and Charlie, whom would eagerly listen to our adventures of the day . The meals were something else and we fed like Royalty , whether it was a Bush breakfast, a Lunch over looking the wonderful Infinity pool, or a candle lit dinner looking up at the stars. Whatever the ocassion Phil and Charlie were around ensuring we were thoroughly spoilt. Each day we shared in special surprises but I will not spoil it for you as you just need to go and experience it for yourselves, then you will understand our enthusiasm for this wonderful place.

It blends into the rocky crags of the "kopje" (small hill), built above the site of George Adamson's original campsite. Every cottage is the ultimate 'room-with-a-view,' uniquely designed and crafted, incorporating the natural features of the rocky hillside. There is also an open bar, lounge and dining room with an exceptionally inviting infinity pool overlooking the Meru plains. ... more less
