Climbing Mount Meru is rarely even considered by most visitors
to Tanzania, yet it is one of the most wonderful, short mountain
hikes. It is a good acclimatisation hike if completed immediately
prior to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. The reason for its renown
is because it is located in the Arusha National Park so you see
plenty of wildlife during your trip and the summit provides the
most stunning views of Mount Kilimanjaro. Your hike takes you
through lush forest where you may see giraffes, zebra, monkeys,
iridescent sun-birds and buffalo. You will be accompanied by an
armed ranger. Your hike proceeds at your own pace with plenty
of time to stop and enjoy the views. After your climb, let us
take you on a safari to explore other famous national parks. We
also offer a range of day trips to nearby game reserves as well
as longer safaris and gloriously indulgent beach breaks on islands
(Mafia, Zanzibar and Pemba) in the Indian Ocean off Dar Es Salaam
which can booked in combination with your Mount Meru climb.
