4 Days Mt. Meru climbing

0

Mount Meru is the best for acclimatization prior to Mount Kilimanjaro climbing; The Mountain is the third highest peak in Africa and is the second highest mountain in Tanzania at 4,568m.
The mountain is located within Arusha National Park, Tanzania’s gem. This prime location gives trekkers the chance to spot some of wildlife that inhabits the area

A beautiful mountain to hike, as part of a trilogy of East Africa’s highest peaks. Also superb pre safari for hikers or the adventurous. 

A 4-day hike to the summit of Mt Meru through verdant Afromontane Forest into high altitude alpine desert with stunning views of a dormant volcano. 

Signs and possible sightings of wildlife on foot, Afromontane Forest, less busy than Kilimanjaro, excellent bird life and game drives in Arusha National Park. One of the most under rated hikes in East Africa.
