Rhino River Camp

Rhino River Camp is a new eco-friendly luxury lodge located in Meru National Park, Kenya, where the legend of Elsa the lioness began.

Rhino River Camp offers safari accommodation in eight cottages built of caramel canvas and sustainable hardwood, raised on platforms above the gently flowing Kindani River.

Each room at the Rhino River Camp is spacious and comfortable and has views over the river and its huge raffia palms, yellow fever trees, and tamarinds. The camp meets most of its energy needs through solar and hydro-electric power, using the abundant sunshine and flowing rivers of the area to full advantage.

We operate a scheme whereby the communities of the surrounding villages receive a percentage of the profits made by the camp

Within the Camp guests can enjoy the sights and sounds over 180 species of different colourful birds, together with resident mammals that include Syke’s monkeys, baboons, dik diks, bush babies, porcupines, and the occasional bush buck.

Meru N. P. is also home to species as reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, and Oryx which are not to be found in many other National Parks or areas in Kenya.
