Covering an area of 870 km², it is one the famous known parks of Kenya. It has abundant rainfall, which results in tall grass and lush swamps. The park has a wide range of wild beasts like elephant, hippopotamus, lion, leopard, cheetah, black rhinoceros and some rare antelopes. Meru was one of the two areas in which conservationists George Adamson and Joy Adamson raised Elsa the Lioness made famous in the best selling book and award winning movie Born Free. Elsa the Lioness is buried in this park and part of Joy's ashes were scattered on her gravesite. Joy Adamson released Pippa the cheetah in this park too.
Dense riverine forests grow along the watercourses surrounded by prehistoric-looking doum palms. There are hundreds of bird species including the Somali-ostrich, the red-necked falcon and Pel’s fishing owl which can be heard at night. The park has lovely views, with Mt Kenya as a backdrop.

Mathews Mountain Forest & the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy

The forest of the Mathews Mountains, covers approx. 900 km sq, stretched over peaks that rise up to over 6000 ft from the surrounding lowlands of 2500 ft. A vast pristine natural forest, that has been described by the BBC as a “biological bonanza” on a “sky island”. Not your traditional gamedriving country, mass tourism has not visited the Mathews Mountain forest, and Kitich Camp has this huge expanse of wonderland to itself.

A refuge for elephant, and of course natural habitat for “melanistic” forest leopard, the forest is not only home to a huge diversity of wildlife, which include rare monkeys, buffalo, lion, bushbuck, forest hog; but is also full of those magical things that are best observed on foot – over 150 species of butterfly, over 350 species of birds, wild forest orchids, and the endemic giant cycad.

In 1995, the local community, facilitated by the Northern Rangeland Trust, established the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy Trust, which encompasses the whole of the Mathews Mountain Range, and environs, covering an area of approx. 2,800 km sq. The Wildlife Conservancy is run by community rangers trained and managed by NRT, with radios, vehicles and security links into the Lewa security network. The conservancy ownership is an elected community committee of 13 trustees, with the mandate to develop local health support, administer education bursaries, resolve grazing conflicts, develop water resources, and preserve the ecosystem and wildlife with an organised network of rangers. Kitich Camp is a key tourism partner of the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy, paying conservancy fees directly to the community and working with the communities at grass root level
