Meru National Park was made famous by the book Born Free, detailing author Joy Adamson’s hand-rearing of orphaned lioness Elsa in the Park. The beautiful Rojewero River bisects the Park, and along its banks birdwatchers may be fortunate enough to spot the handsome palm-nut vulture and the very elusive Peter’s finfoot.
