Cast a line into Meru’s many rivers Go fishing

The essence of going fishing

Try your hand at fishing in one of Meru’s many rivers. Settle down with a fishing rod in the shade of the fringed palms that line the river’s banks. You will be served some delicious canapés and your favourite drinks while you relax and watch the quiet waters. Keep a sharp eye out for graceful herons, monitor lizards or brilliantly coloured little kingfishers, all of which would be more than happy to share in your catch! Try various techniques and lures to catch some of the plentiful catfish, tilapia and barbel that inhabit the river. Choose to spend the whole afternoon or just a few hours.

A trio of rivers surge along the boundaries of Meru – the Tana, Ura and Rojeweru Rivers. Supporting the lush flora and prolific fauna, these gushing waterways offer exciting fishing opportunities. Your guide knows all the best fishing spots along the rivers and will make sure that you find the right place to work your angling magic.

Take the time to relish your surroundings and drink in the tranquil space, where you have the wildlife and the wilderness all to yourself. Gaze up to the sky or glance at the glimmering water and marvel at the multitude of over 300 bird species gracefully fluttering through the skies.
