Park & Mt. Kenya National Parks
8. MERU NATIONAL PARK
Meru National Park is a savanna National Park, 35km east of Meru
town in the north eastern lowlands below the Nyambeni hills. Meru
is part of a complex of protected areas along the Tana river that
includes the adjacent Bisanadi and Mwingi National Reserves (to
the east and south respectively), Kora national park and Rahole
national reserve. The wetter North Western sector is hilly, with
rich volcanic soils. The land flattens towards the East, where grey
alluvial volcanic soils appear.
The area is crossed by numerous permanent streams,
draining from the Nyambenes and flowing in parallel between tounges
of lava, south eastwards towards the Tana River. As well as the
many streams that cross it, the park is bounded by three large rivers:
the Tana to the South, the Ura to the South West and the Rojeweru
to the East. There are several prominent inselbergs of basement
rock, notably Mughwango and Leopard rock. A section of the park
has been designated as a wilderness area in which are no roads.
The park is part of the domain made famous by the writings of Joy
