TRIP OVERVIEW

Meru National Park is where this Kenya safari starts and takes you to Loisaba and eventually lands Masai Mara Game Reserve. Masai Mara  has been named one of the new Seventh Wonders of the World in a poll of experts conducted by ABC Television’s Good Morning America. The incredible annual migration of over a million Wildebeest from the Serengeti plains to the Mara has been described as being one of the most awe inspiring sights on earth, and a broadcast on US morning television took this spectacle into millions of American homes. You can’t talk of the film ‘Born Free’ without mentioning Meru National Park.
