The Sanctuary

The main emphasis of the Game Sanctuary is to provide safe haven to African plains game and birds. These include eland, ostriches, waterbucks, zebras, buffalo, small carnivores such as Monitor lizards, small wild cats and of course the enormous variety of birdlife who come to feed, breed and enjoy the unique freedom offered by our very safe environment.

In a specially designed, enclosed area of the grounds of the lodge are also to be found magnificent porcupine, rare birds, turtle and even a Nile crocodile.

The sanctuary is a project it its own right in that all of our animals are "rescued" and brought to Mount Meru Game Lodge either because they are orphaned or injured. Those that can be rehabilitated are returned to the wild whilst others are provided with a permanent home in the grounds of the property. By choosing to stay with us, you will play an important role in the survival of these animals since the activities of the sanctuary are financed entirely by the lodge.

Mount Meru Game Lodge & Sanctuary is extremely fortunate to receive daily visits from troops of 'Black and White Colobus Monkeys.' These exquisite and very rare creatures, which are normally only to be found in Arusha National Park and the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, can be seen jumping from tree to tree in the grounds of the property.

The animals and birdlife at Mount Meru Game Lodge and Sanctuary are certain to delight all of our guests and visitors.


The Usa River, the magnificent views of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru, the wildlife, birdlife, trees, plants and shrubs all combine to make Mount Meru Game Lodge & Sanctuary a truly exquisite natural wonderland.
