Rising up to 4,556 meters in elevation and casting an imposing shadow over the rest of Arusha National Park, Mount Meru is one of Tanzania’s premier hiking destination.

Just 70 kilometres west of the iconic Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru is the fifth highest peak in Africa and second tallest mountain in Kenya. It makes for an excellent acclimatization trek for those heading off to Kili and is a hidden gem in its own right.

After meeting up at Kilimanjaro International Airport, we will head to the hotel in Moshi (not included in the trip price) to go over our itinerary the day before the trip begins.

At 8 am the following morning, we will drive up to the park. After registering, we will make our way out onto the trail and begin hiking from the Momella gate (1,500 meters) to Miriakamba Hut (2,500 meters).

Along the way, we will be accompanied by an armed guard, while we enjoy phenomenal views of Kilimanjaro and get the chance to see cape buffaloes, giraffes, warthogs and bushbucks, among many other animals.

Arusha National Park is renowned for its abundant biodiversity, meaning we’ll have plenty of chances to see all sorts of rare and exotic species as we go.
