Mount Meru (Tanzania)

Mount Meru

Is the dormant stratovolcano with impressive peak standing at 4566 meters above sea-level, located 70 kilometers (43miles) west of mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. For those who are in good shape and like a physical work out, this mountain can be climbed as a 3 day option. You reach the summit on the night of day two and descend to main gate on day three!! Although doable, normally leaves a few sore muscles and tired knees from so much downhill in one go,defeat the object if acclimatizing and training for a Kilimanjaro climb.

4 days trekking is for sure what we recommend, allowing time for altitude side trips to Little Meru and to soak in amazing views on the way up from every vantage point – best views ever of Kilimanjaro. Accommodation in mountain huts.

Additional activities

  • Photographic wildlife safaris
  • Half day walking safariswith armed rangers
  • Canoeing safaris around Monela Lake, get close to water buffalo, hippo and many types of water birds, including lesser east African flamingo.
