Mount Meru

Mount Meru

Mount Meru towers over the bustling, friendly town of Arusha, the starting point for Northern Safaris and treks. Now officially measured as Africa’s fourth highest mountain, a few metres taller than Rash Deshen in Ethiopia, Mount Meru is a great four day trek/climb. You will pass through magical cloud forest and then as you trek out onto the high heath, have fabulous views across the plains of Tanzania to the Rift Escarpment and to Kilimanjaro. The summit approach on Meru takes you around a volcanic cone and jagged rim of austere and giant proportions. Views to mteh ash cone within the crater are phenomenal

Meru is located in Arusha National Park, where you can see buffalo, giraffe, antelope, baboon and colobus monkey as well as numerous species of birds in the cloud forest and on the plains.

Meru works very well as a most effective acclimatiser for Kilimanjaro.
