Superb bargain at Meru National Park
Posted by Richard Trillo at Monday, June 29, 2009
The Kinna bandas at Meru National Park are gems in the wilderness. Not only do they have incongruously large rooms, decent beds with bedding, new nets, and clean showers and toilets, but the site has its own, pristine swimming pool. In the middle of Meru National Park, which, ten years ago, was all but abandoned, this was a sight to behold. The bandas are looked after by Jackson, who also cares for Ndusi, the orphaned giraffe. Watch out for her feet - one step to the right or left and yours would be mincemeat. A fantastic place – I wish I could have stayed here longer. The bandas cost $70 a night each, or $80 in the high season.
