Trekking Mount Meru - 6 Days / 5 Nights

Getting Started

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.
