Welcome to Rhino River Camp, an unusual, exclusive and luxury lodge located in extraordinary Meru National Park, Kenya, where the legend of Elsa the lioness began. Your perfect base to explore the complete wilderness of Meru Park and its amazing wildlife. A collection of eight luxury cottages built out of sumptuous caramel canvas and sustainable hardwood, raised on platforms above the gently flowing Kindani River will turn your stay at Rhino River Camp into a quiet, exclusive experience.
Situated in 80 acres of privately owned wilderness, our lodge offers the chance to connect with nature and to delight the senses in unspoilt bush and forest. Whether it’s watching the classic African wildlife, indulging in a therapeutic massage, going on a bush hike or simply soaking up the savannah sun with a drink in the evening, Rhino River Camp offers endless opportunities for adventure and the perfect space for relaxation. The Rhino Sanctuary section of Meru Park is just on our doorstep! So, whenever you feel like leaving the comfort of the Camp to see the Big Five (and more), you are able to do that within a few minutes.
The luxury and uniquely designed canvas cottages of the Camp are built on wooden decks suspended among the trees of the pristine forest edging Kindani river.
The rooms are large, and set on decks at different levels blending with the tree canopy. They make the perfect retreat and ideal location from which to feel part of the living, breathing environment of the riverine forest. Each room has a view over the river with sweeping boughs of raffia palms, yellow fever trees, and tamarinds. The canvas cottages are scattered above a wild stream thus ensuring a private and peaceful stay in the most romantic setting imaginable.

The adjacent dining area is open from early to late. With no set meal times, and exclusive service, indulge your appetite and senses. You may decide to eat in the main area or beside the swimming pool, in the privacy of the terrace of your room, or with other guests whom you like, or even in the bush! The choice is yours – every meal time. Let our chefs surprise you with a selection of gourmet delicacies with an Italian accent.
The swimming pool is situated next to the stream, and surrounded by comfortable wood decking. The pool blends in with the sound and sight of the river running a few feet away giving you the feeling that you are swimming as a creature of the equatorial forest at one with nature.
