The Mount Meru is located within Arusha National Park and it is the dormant volcanic mountain. During climbing Mount Meru Climbers’ have to walk across the Arusha National Park where they can see different wildlife and birds that inhabit the area. The trek is quite sheer, the route to the summit passes over streams, through parkland, montane forest, a giant heather zone and moorland. The Meru summit is reached by a narrow, barren ridge, which provides stunning views of the Ash Cone lying several thousand feet below in the crater. Weather permitting, Kilimanjaro can be seen in the West. There are two huts available to climbers on the mountain and firewood is supplied.

The best time to climb Meru Mountain is between October and February but one can climb in June to September although it will be colder season.

The track passes open grassland, providing an opportunity to see buffalo, warthogs and other grazers. The trail continues as a steady climb through montane forest. We take lunch near a giant Fig Tree arch. After lunch, the route continues through less dense forest, where there are an abundance of birds and black and white colobus monkeys.
By mid-afternoon, we can see towering cliffs and the Ash Cone. We reach Miriakamba Hut (2,514 m.), situated in an idyllic grassy glade, in time to enjoy the last of the afternoon sun and beautiful views over the surrounding plains towards Kilimanjaro. (4-6 hours walking). Overnight at Miriakamba Hut. All meals included.

Day 2: Climb Mount Meru: Miriakamba Hut (2,514 m) to Saddle Hut (3,570 m)

The path continues through giant heather and other fascinating moorland vegetation to reach Saddle Hut (3,570 m), where lunch is will be provided.

The summit of Socialist Peak (4,566 m.) is an hour further on a good but steep path. The route back to Rhino Point in the morning light, on a narrow ridge between the sloping outer wall of the crater and the sheer cliffs of the inner wall, is one of the most dramatic and exhilarating walks in Africa.
