Mount Meru is a volcanic mountain with the height of 4566m, altitude above sea level.it can be occupied with a little bit hardship in three days. The four-day ascent is however attained with less hardship and this is highly recommended for a hiker who wants to hike this mountain to the summit. In case you plan to conquer the highest point of Africa- Uhuru peak. The hiking is very exciting as you experience many things on your way up including games like Giraffes, buffaloes, warthogs, monkeys, zebras and birds. Mt Meru is the second highest mountain in Tanzania and a much underrated mountain to climb because of its close proximity to Kilimanjaro. It’s a horse shaped volcanic crater with a hugely narrow ridge and superb all round views. The Cliffs of the inner wall below the summit are over 1500m high, and inside the caldera is a lesser peak called the Ash Cone that last erupted only 100 years ago. There is an immense variety of tree and plant life, adding considerably to the interest of the trek.

Mt Meru is part of Arusha National Park and the lower slopes of the mountain shelter a variety of wildlife. The routes below Miriakamba Hut are more like walking safaris than mountain climbs and our guide is informed and armed park ranger. You are almost certain to see buffaloes, monkeys, warthogs, and variety of birdlife. Giraffe and elephants are quite common. There are well maintained accommodation and well maintained wooden huts that have spectacular views of Kilimanjaro rising above the clouds. This climb of Mt Muro is so much justified on its own merits but it’s also a great way to get acclimatized for Kilimanjaro.
