Mount Meru is the second highest in Tanzania and the fourth highest in Africa, which is 4566 metres and most beautiful volcanoes. The route to the summit passes through parkland, montane forest, a giant heather zone and moorland. Finally, the summit is reached by a narrow,barren ridge which provides stunning views of the ash cone several thousand feet below.
There are also great views of the nearby Mt. Kilimanjaro. This climb is used by many as an acclimatization for a Mt. Kilimanjaro climb but it is an excellent trek in its own right. It also requires fewer days to climb so those without enough time to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro may consider this option. In addition, it is proportionally less expensive than a Mt. Kilimanjaro climb.
The mountain in located inside of Arusha National Park. Here, over 400 species of birds, rhino, elephant, buffalo, baboon, warthog, black and white Colobus monkey and duiker are all found in this delightful “gem amongst parks.” The group will be accompanied on Mount Meru by a Kilimanjaro Trekking Mate guide, a mandatory park ranger and porters. On the mountain we use dormitory style huts. A sleeping bag and mat are required for the huts. The mountain has only one route to climb, the Momella route. This can be achieved in either three or four days.
