Meru can be visited throughout the year, but wildlife viewing is best in the Dry season from June to September. Wildlife watching is usually more difficult during the long rains (March to May), and the short rains (October to November). During this time the weather may interfere with your enjoyment of game drives. Also, the grass tends to be very high making spotting animals more difficult. Elephants migrate out of the park in the rainy season and the roads in the rhino sanctuary might become impassable.
