Mount Meru is Tanzania's second highest peak. It offers both 3 and
4 day hikes to reach the summit. This is a good climb to get you fit enough
to attempt Mount Kilimanjaro.
The Mountain is one of Africa's highest and most beautiful volcanoes. The route to the summit passes through parkland, montane forest, a giant heather zone and moorland. Finally, 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 and Kilimanjaro in the background. Over 400 species of birds, along with rhino, elephant, buffalo, baboon, warthog, black and white colobus monkey and duiker can be found. The visit to the Ngurdoto crater and Momella lakes, with their superb scenery, flamingoes and other wildlife, is an unforgettable experience.
