MOUNT MERU TREKKING TOURS
Mt. Meru is indeed the perfect preparation for a Kilimanjaro climb. It offers you a taste of what you can expect on Kili:
- You trek in a group with porters, cook and guides
- You climb through different vegetation zones over several days,
- You start your summit attempt around midnight and reach the peak around sunrise,and you then descend an awesome 2000 metres on the same day, very similar to your Kilimanjaro summit day.
Most importantly, at a height of 4562 metres (14967 feet) Mt. Meru requires your body to make changes to adapt to the altitude.
Mount Meru Trekking Tours
The trek to the top of Mount Meru takes 3 to 4 days, and with our two trekking options you can decide whether you would like to tackle Meru at a fast or slightly slower pace. Centered in the heart of Arusha National Park, Meru watches over the park’s impressive ﬂora and fauna, as well as the nearby city of Arusha. Mount Meru’s fertile slopes rise above the surrounding savannah and are home to a variety of wildlife, including nearly 400 species of birds, but also buffalos, leopards, giraffes
and different species of monkeys, such as baboons and colobus monkeys. The opportunity for spotting wildlife in its natural habitat is of particular appeal for anyone considering Mount Meru trekking tours, and, for your own safety trekkers will be accompanied by armed rangers at all times just in case the wildlife comes a little too close.
Best Time to Take a Mount Meru Trekking Tour
Mount Meru can be trekked all year around, though the best time to tackle this mountain is during the dry season, from June to the beginning of March. If you’re considering a Mount Meru trekking tour during November or December you should expect occasional rains during these months. For the best views of the snow-capped rooftop of Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, we recommend planning your Meru trek for January or February.
