Mount Meru

Mount Meru Mountain is one of Africa’s highest and most beautiful volcanoes. Mount Meru Mountain is located within Arusha National Park, Tanzania’s gem. This prime location gives walkers the opportunity to spot some of the birds and wildlife that inhabit the area. Ascend is quite steep, the route to the summit passes over streams, through parkland, montane forest, a giant heather zone and moorland. The summit is reached by a narrow, barren ridge, which provides stunning views of the Ash Cone lying several thousand

feet below in the crater. If weather permitting, Kilimanjaro can be seen in the east. Over 400 species of birds, elephant, buffalo, baboon, warthog, black and white Colobus monkey and duiker are all found in this delightful “gem amongst parks”.

There are two huts available for climbers on the mountain and firewood is supplied.

The group will be accompanied on Mount Meru by a Park Guide and porters. On the mountain we use dormitory style huts. A sleeping bag and mat are required for the huts.

The best time to climb Meru is between October and February. But also June to September, while it is colder then.
