Tour Details

Climb Mount Meru – the fifth highest mountain on the African continent and the second highest in Tanzania at 4566m. About 25000 years ago, a massive volcanic blast blew away the entire eastern flank of the mountain and left it with the characteristic and distinctive appearance it has today.

The Mt Meru ascent passes through many different vegetation zones. The dry forest of the lower region gives way to a dense mountain rain forest, which then turns into a shrub land. Towards the top of the mountain, the vegetation consists of heath and moorland and is then finally replaced by the stunning baron alpine deserts.

As the flora changes the wildlife does so too, which is diverse and equally impressive. During the ascent, you will regularly come across large game such as elephants and buffalo but you may also come across leopards.

Tour Highlights - What to Expect

The Mountain is the third highest peak in Africa and is the second highest mountain in Tanzania at 4,568 metres.

Mount Meru is a great preparation hike for climbing Kilimanjaro, or a spectacular trek for those not compelled to do Kilimanjaro.

You will hike past wildlife, the landscape is spectacular, and sunrise on the summit has Kilimanjaro as the backdrop.

While it can be done in only 4 days, it is not an easy peak to summit. To reach the top (almost 15,000 feet), there is some scrambling on rocks in the dark and at high altitude.

You should be prepared for at least 10 hours of hiking on summit day. For an easier hike, you can climb just to Rhino Point for sunrise overlooking Kilimanjaro, and then descend.

Mt. Meru is in Arusha National Park. In Arusha National Park all hikers must be accompanied by an armed ranger. This ranger is employed directly by the national park.

You will also have your own mountain guide, who is managing the crew and watching out for your safety.

The park ranger has the authority to make decisions such as trail choices, pace, etc.

Arusha National Park may combine groups of people to hike with one park ranger, therefore, we cannot guarantee a completely private Meru trek.

Arusha National Park requires the hire of porters specific to Arusha National Park, who will be assigned once you arrive at the trail registration.
