The main emphasis of the Game Sanctuary is to provide safe haven to African plain game and bird life. These include Eland, Ostriches, Waterbuck, Zebra, Buffalo and of course the enormous variety of birds which come to feed, breed and enjoy the unique freedom offered by the safe environment.

The majority of the sanctuary animals were once either orphaned or badly injured and were brought to the Sanctuary for rehabilitation. Staying at Mount Meru plays a very important role in helping these animals as the activities and maintenance of the Sanctuary are entirely financed by the lodge. The animals and bird life at Mount Meru Game Lodge and Sanctuary are certain to delight all guests and visitors.
