Description

Kilimanjaro’s slightly smaller cousin Meru is the perfect place to go to acclimatize for a bigger peak. It’s also just a great climb in its own right. Join one of our experienced guides on a 3-day adventure to the summit.

Mount Meru sits in the beautiful Arusha National Park 70 km to the west of Kilimanjaro and at 4,568m above sea level, is the third tallest mountain in Tanzania.

On this hike, we’ll get to trek through the natural beauty of the national park. This area boasts stunning montane forests as well as amazing wildlife like elephants, zebras, and monkeys. As you get higher up the mountain, you’ll also get to see big craters and stunning views of the surrounding mountains.

We’ll spend anywhere from 3 to 14 hours hiking a day. Some parts of the trail can be very steep, so you’ll need a pretty good level of fitness.

You’ll be glad you put in the hard work, however when you’re enjoying the sunrise views of Kilimanjaro and the Tanzanian landscape from the summit.

This is an awesome hike that gives you access to some of Tanzania’s most beautiful landscapes and wildlife. Save your spot today!
