Mt. Meru (Alt 4,566m) is the second highest mountain in Tanzania and one of Africa s most beautiful volcanoes. It is overshadowed by Kilimanjaro, its famous neighbor, and frequently overlooked by most visitors to Tanzania.
It is a great preparation hike for climbing Kilimanjaro, or a spectacular trek for those not compelled to do Kilimanjaro and ready to do the African adventure experience
Meru is a spectacular mountain; the trek involves beautiful hiking through the grassland and forest on the mountain s lower slopes, followed by a dramatic and exhilarating and, sometimes, tough walk to the summit. The summit is reached by a narrow, barren ridge which provides stunning views of the ash cone. Mt. Kilimanjaro can also be seen in the background. The other highlight of this route is the variety of African wildlife that can be seen. Elephant, black and white colobus monkeys, buffalo, and baboon to name but a few. Overnight is in dormitory style huts.
