Mount Meru is 50 miles west of Mt Kilimanjaro. Mount Meru is a beautiful volcano, 14,980 feet high. Many people use Mount Meru as a practice climb before climbing Mt Kilimanjaro. It helps with altitude acclimatization. Mt Meru has many different wildlife and fewer people than seen on Mt Kilimanjaro. It is located in the center of Arusha National Park. With the chance of encountering wildlife, an armed ranger will accompany you on the first leg to protect from any possible wildlife threats. The trail follows the North rim of the crater, along a dramatic ridge line. Once you summit, the views of Mt Kilimanjaro and down into Meru Crater are unforgettable.
Mt Meru is offered as four day itineraries. Gives the rest of the week to take advantage of our safari packages to top off a great vacation.
