Mount Meru, Kilimanjaro’s more accessible cousin, is located east of the Great Rift Valley in the small but beautiful Arusha National Park. Recognized as the second tallest mountain in Tanzania and the fourth highest on the continent, its towering peak and fertile soil attract avid hikers because of the easy trails and diverse wildlife.

Travelers agree that Mount Meru offers incredible views of the summit crater and Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as access to numerous African animals. (The fertile soil surrounding this still active volcano is home to some 400 species of indigenous birds, several types of monkeys and a handful of Tanzanian leopards.) A trip to this less-traveled peak is typically done in conjunction with an excursion to one of Tanzania’s more popular destinations: Mount Kilimanjaro, the Ngorongoro Crater or Mount Kenya. But this just means travelers looking to get back to nature can escape the congestion on the trails of Mount Meru.

3 Days Itinerary is the best for acclimatization prior to Kilimanjaro climbing; It is the third highest peak in Africa and is the second-highest Peak in Tanzania at 4,568m. The mountain is located within Tanzania’s gem. The prime location gives trekkers the chance to spot some of the wildlife that inhabits the area. Ascend is quite steep, the route to the summit passes over streams, through parkland, montane forest, a giant heather zone, and moorland. Summit is reached by a narrow, barren ridge, which provides stunning views of the Ash Cone lying several thousand feet below in the crater.

12 Days Expedition Full Moon Summit Kilimanjaro

12 Days Expedition Full Moon Summit Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro Climbing is an incredible experience this is lifetime experience for lovers, What a lovely memory if you could propose your lover on the full moon at the top of Africa? The sunsets, the views and the wild and ever changing landscape make it one of the best treks on earth. Kilimanjaro Full Moon Dates What many people don’t know is that on the final day of ascent, you actually trek through the night to reach the summit near dawn. A great option then is to make sure you trek when there is a full moon that night. This makes the trek just that little bit more special as the magnificent glaciers light up under the full moon to create a simply stunning landscape view! There is also a practical reason in trekking under a full moon; it illuminates your path. Normally you would be required to wear a head torch on summit night, however, under a full moon on a clear night you could get away without using a head torch

1 Day Mount Meru Hiking

1 Day Mount Meru Hiking

star-5

Mount Meru has been labelled ‘Kilimanjaro’s little brother’ due to the fact that it is the second highest mountain in Tanzania. The four day hike allows you to analyse the scenic landscapes in a leisurely manner but Mount Meru trekking will challenge your body’s limits. The climb to the summit doesn’t require an athlete or an extreme alpinist but you should be in relatively good shape. The elevated viewpoint of the Arusha National Park allows you to discover the beauty that lies in the savannah plains featuring bursts of colourful vegetation and the scattered wildlife. The towering Mount Kilimanjaro can be spotted in the distance of the landscape. Tranquil hikes through the luscious canopies and the narrow trails enclosing the U shaped crater provide you with the perfect opportunity to clear your mind. Reaching the summit is an experience you are unlikely to forget

4 Days Mount Meru Climbing

4 Days Mount Meru Climbing

star-5

Meru is a great preparation hike for climbing Kilimanjaro, or a spectacular trek for those not compelled to do Kilimanjaro. You will hike past wildlife, the landscape is spectacular, and sunrise on the summit has Kilimanjaro as the backdrop. While typically done in only 4 days, it is not an easy peak to summit. To reach the top, there is some scrambling on rocks in the dark and at high altitude. You should be prepared for at least 10 hours of hiking on summit day. For an easier hike, you can climb just to Rhino Point for sunrise, and then descend. Mt. Meru is in Arusha National Park. In Arusha National Park all hikers must be accompanied by an armed ranger in addition to the AWR guide. This ranger is employed directly by the national park. You will also have your own guide, who is managing the crew and watching out for your safety.

Mount Meru 4-Days Trek

Mount Meru 4-Days Trek

Mount Meru, situated east of the Great Rift Valley and about 40 km southwest of Kilimanjaro in northern Tanzania's Arusha National Park, is considered an active volcano and is the country's second-highest mountain. It is also considered the fourth highest mountain in all of Africa by some (after Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya, and the Rwenzoris - aka the Mountains of the Moon). 500,000+ years ago, Mount Meru erupted in a tremendous explosion that destroyed it's a cone shape and resulted in a horseshoe crater with the eastern side removed. The resulting mountain has its summit on the west side with its inner walls rising over 1,500m from the crater floor, making them among the tallest cliffs in Africa. In the past 100 years, eruptions have been reported as the Ash Cone continues to build inside the crater.

The ascension to the volcano Mt. Meru is the perfect preparation for the conquest of Kilimanjaro. You can get used to the heights (around 15.000 feet) and it is possible to test out the equipment so that you will be able to correct and improve it at the rest day that lies between the climbing of Kilimanjaro. We recommend a four-day tour. You will spend the nights in the so-called “Swiss” huts, which nobody would expect to find in Africa. Even to the top of the volcano animals roam, especially buffalo. At the foot of Mt. Meru you often meet with giraffes, elephants, wild hogs, antelopes, baboons and a great variety of birds. To ensure your safety the group is accompanied by an armed ranger. On the tour you will cross many different vegetation zones, as there is open grassland, mountain forest, swamp, giant heather and penurious rocks, therefore you have the chance to experience.

4-Day Mount Meru Hiking Tour with Accommodation

4-Day Mount Meru Hiking Tour with Accommodation

At 4,566 meters, Mount Meru is the fifth highest mountain on the African continent and the second highest in Tanzania. About 250,000 years ago, a massive volcanic eruption blew away the entire eastern flank of the mountain and left it with the distinctive appearance it has today. The Mount Meru ascent passes through many vegetation zones. The dry forest of the lower region changes to a dense mountain rainforest, which then turns into scrub land. Closer to the summit, the vegetation becomes less and less and gives way to alpine terrain. As the vegetation changes so the wildlife. During the ascent, you might come across large games such as giraffes, buffaloes, baboons, colobus monkeys, and antelopes. To be safe, it is obligatory to be accompanied by an armed park ranger on your tour.
