What to know about Meru Mountain:
The Mount Meru is the second highest mountain in Tanzania with 4.566 m altitude. It’s the fifth highest mountain in Africa and one of the most beautiful volcanoes. On the mountain we sleep in dormitory huts and the group is accompanied by a special Mount Meru park ranger and porters.
The route to the summit of Mount Meru passes through Arusha National Park. Over 400 species of animals roam the lower slopes of the volcano; these include birds, elephant, buffalo, baboon, warthog, black and white colobus monkey and duiker. A visit to Ngurdoto Crater and Momella Lakes offers superb scenery with flamingos and other wildlife. Accommodation on this ascent is in dormitory styled huts. Hiking to the summit of Mount Meru is over terrain which is often steep and could prove to be a tough challenge for some.
