Tour Overview

Meru has one route to the top and can be attempted for three days but we highly recommend doing it for four days for acclimatisation. Most alpines use Meru for acclimatisation before the Kilimanjaro climb. The mountain has less snow formed by the volcano eruption.

Unlike Kilimanjaro when you are climbing Mount Meru you have to be escorted by an armed ranger(s) as you pass through the Arusha National Park. It is at this time when you will enjoy the walking safari as you pass the groups of African buffaloes, Zebras, Black and white colobus monkeys, just little wildlife to mention.
The Momela and Ngurdoto Lakes are rich in birdlife as you trek to the mountain; birds like Pelicans and Flamingo are closely seen.
