Mount Meru is the fifth highest mountain on the African continent and the second highest in Tanzania and dominates the Arusha National Park with its huge cliffs. The mountain is often used as warm-up hiking in preparation for the Kilimanjaro.
However, the technical requirements are greater on Mount Meru than on the Kilimanjaro Routes. On the four-day trekking tour, you are more than likely to see giraffes, buffalos, antelopes and baboons; therefore, a park ranger will accompany you for your safety.
Mount Meru is one of the ten highest mountains in Africa. A perfect acclimatisation climb before attempting Kilimanjaro.
Climbing Mt Meru is more technical than Kili. Accommodation is in rustic huts and climbs can be booked to start on any day of the week.
