Meru National Park is one of the most untouched and beautiful park in Kenya. It contains a large variety of wildlife which includes lions, elephants, cheetahs, leopards, buffalos, and much more. The park is also home to over 300 species of birds including the Peter's Finfoot, which is found around the river bordering the lodge.
The park was made famous for being the setting where conservationists†George Adamson†and†Joy Adamson raised the orphan lioness Elsa. A vestige of their original home can be found inside the boundaries of the Lodge, a key spot to visit.
Bordering the Murera River, and being located close to the Bisanadi National Reserve, allows Leopard Rock Lodge to be perfectly situated in the Park. The Murera river is home to many species including crocodiles, hippos, various species of fish and much more. Many animals also use the river as a spot for hydration, which attracts the attention of many animals. The fact that Leopard Rock Lodge is completely unfenced, and open to the wild, allows the wildlife to move freely close and within the lodge, a unique experience which only Leopard Rock Lodge offers in the Park.
The Borana tribe is one of over 200 people belonging to the largest tribe in Ethiopia called the Oromo. Classified as Eastern Cushites, it is believed that they were gradually pushed westward from the Horn of Africa by the Somali around the tenth century until they entered Ethiopia in the sixteenth century.†
