Mount Meru - 4 Days, 3 Nights Trek

Trek Summary:

Mount Meru is the second highest mountain in Tanzania, at 4566metre (14,979feet). It is overshadowed by Kilimanjaro, its famous neighbour, and frequently overlooked by visitors. But Meru is a spectacular mountain; a trek involves beautiful hiking through the grassland and forest on the mountain’s lower slopers, followed by a dramatic and exhilarating ridge-walk to the summit.

    Momella Gate - Miriakamba Hut

    In the morning we are collected from your hotel and transfer to Arusha National Park. At the Momella gate we finish registration formalities before setting off with your guide and armed ranger – there is abundant wildlife in the forests! The forest section is especially scenic with strangler figs and the possibility of seeing buffalo grazing in one of the clearings. In the late afternoon we reach a viewpoint before heading onto Miriakamba hut for dinner.

  • null
    Saddle Hut

    We set off from Miriakamba initially still in the forest zone but in a few hours as we reach Saddle hut for lunch in the alpine desert zone. In the afternoon a walk to the summit of Little Meru can be taken for stunning views before heading back to Saddle Hut for dinner.

    Miriakamba hut

    We rise early and our hard work is rewarded at dawn as the sun rises to the East. Kilimanjaro is normally clearly seen from here and the sheer cliffs of the crater fall dramatically 1000 feet or more. We return back and after some brunch at Saddle Hut, we continue down to Miriakamba hut for dinner.

    Summit - Momella Gate

    The final section takes up to 3 hours to return to our vehicles where we say farewell to our crew and have time for a short picnic lunch and game drive before returning to Arusha/Moshi for a well deserved shower!
