Trekking Mount Meru - 5 Days / 4 Nights

Daily Itinerary

Day 1
Arrival Day in either Arusha or Moshi

On arrival you are personally met at the airport by one of our representatives and transferred to your chosen hotel in Arusha or Moshi. In the afternoon there is a full briefing with the climbs manager and your guide. Dinner is included. Mount Meru is located in Arusha. If you are only climbing Mt Meru we recommend you opt to stay the night in Arusha not Moshi.

Day 2: After breakfast we leave your hotel at 8:30 a.m and drive to Momella gate to register. We start the climb and stop for a picnic lunch before reaching the first hut called Miriakamba. We have dinner here and overnight in huts - Miriakamba hut (3 ½ hrs walk).

Day 3: After breakfast we proceed with a climb to the second base called Saddle Huts. This is steeper than the day before but is a short 2 ½ hour trek. During the afternoon, we will take a walk to Little Meru Peak which offers views of the main summit. We then enjoy dinner and head to bed.

On the way back we will pass through Momella Lakes and enjoy some game viewing before returning to your hotel.
