Nyambene is one of the best locations to get engrossed in untamed wild in Meru County. The 265 Km2 conservancy named after the famous Nyambene Hills and is home to some of the rare wild including the Gerenuk antelope, the reticulated giraffe and Grevy’s zebra. Nyambene National Reserve has one of the most breathtaking craters in the world – Igombe. The Crater is located at the northeast tip of the Nyambene range. The crater was showcased in 2012 in a photo gallery by Martin Harvey titled ‘Africa from the Air’ that featured on the travel magazine of The Telegraph. A small lake on the floor of Igombe crater evaporates to form a soda salt crust where the Meru people have been collecting salt for centuries.
