Trekking Mount Meru 4 days 3 nights

We recommended you do this climb as an acclimatisation before attempting Mount Kilimanjaro.

Mount Meru is situated within the Arusha National Park (an area of about 137 sq. km) and is 45 kilometers from Arusha. It has a wide range of habitats, from alkaline crater lakes and swamps to mountain forests and alpine deserts. Mt Meru is the fourth highest mountain in Africa and can be climbed in three or four days. Accommodation is in huts. Wild animals are plentiful and include buffalo, elephants, giraffes, hippos, zebras, leopards, waterbucks, hyenas, duikers, baboons, and almost 400 species of birds. The mountain is most well known for the beautiful black and white colobus monkeys which swing from branches in the tall rainforest trees and the shy duikers. On this climb, in addition to your trekking team, you will also have an armed ranger to ensure your safety. We recommend you do this climb to help you acclimatise for your Mount Kilimanjaro adventure. After descending, you will spend only one night in either Arusha or Moshi before starting your second climb. Any longer than this and the benefits of acclimatisation will be lost. The Arusha National Park also makes an ideal day game drive or pleasant few hours walk.
