Welcome to Mount Meru

Mount Meru is one of the most spectacular landscapes in Tanzania and recommended for a family visit or summer holiday tour. It’s the second highest peak in Tanzania. 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.

.Tanzania’s second highest peak at 4,566m
.Mt Meru Crater is one of the most spectacular landscapes in Tanzania and is thus the highpoint of a visit here.
.Both Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru can be seen from the park.

About 250 000 years ago, a massive volcanic blast blew away the entire eastern flank of the mountain and left it with the characteristic and distinctive appearance it has today. The Mt Meru ascent passes through many different vegetation zones. The dry forest of the lower region gives way to a dense mountain rainforest, which then turns into a scrubland. Towards the top of the mountain, the vegetation consists of heath and moorland and is then finally replaced by the stunning baron alpine deserts. As the flora changes the wildlife does so too, which is diverse and equally impressive. During the ascent, you will regularly come across large game such as Elephants and buffalos but you may also come across Leopards. Due to this, it is obligatory to be accompanied by an armed park ranger on your tour.
