Mount Meru Trekking Overview:

Second-highest in Tanzania and fifth highest in Africa overall. Mount Meru is the first sight to get you near the city of Arusha from outside. Lying within the borders of the Arusha National Park. The scenic beauty of this mountain which serves as an excellent backdrop for the plains of this park is un parallel. Furthermore, the lower reaches of the mountain which are mainly forest and woodlands are accommodating places. therefore this is for a wide range of wild animals which account for the majority of the wildlife found in Arusha National Park. 3 Days Mount Meru Trekking is filled with adventure and jubilation.

This Mount Meru contains a height of 4,566 meters. 1,000 meters shorter than Kilimanjaro. Also, it situates 70 Km from Mount Kilimanjaro and clearly visible from there on a clear given day. Therefore, Trekkers use Mount Meru as a warm-up climbing destination before trekking Mount Kilimanjaro. But this is for acclimatization purposes. Because of its relatively shorter height, not-so-hard trekking routes, and closeness to the city of Arusha. it is also widely popular among tourists. Another benefit of Mount Meru Trekking is it is free from crowds and finds yourself ahead in the mountain.

Besides the wonderful Trekking destination with stunning trekking routes, Mount Meru boasts excellent wildlife concentration. Also, you will see many wild animals including elephants, monkeys, warthogs, buffaloes, etc. Because of these wild animals, Mount Meru Trekking often accompanied by an armed ranger.
