      About this trip

      Tanzania’s second and the African continents fourth highest mountain towers at an impressive 4566m or 14980ft above the ground just east of the Kilimanjaro region in Arusha National Park. Generally serving as a great warm up (acclimatization) trek for a Kilimanjaro climb, Mt Meru is also a spectacular trek in it’s own right and offers an exciting first day through the park forest (almost like a walking safari) with an armed ranger (shared with other groups).
