Meru Mountain

Your Tanzanian tour and safari company in Arusha

Meru Mountain Climb
Trip Overview

At a height of 4,566 meters (14,980 ft), Mount Meru is a dormant stratovolcano located in Arusha National Park, 70 Kilometres, west of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Climbing this mountain to the summit will take a professional climber for 2 days but a regular person, it will take 3 to 4 days.

This Mountain is ideal for visitors who want to test their trekking abilities as it gives you a short time to acclimatize compared to its cousin Kilimanjaro Mountain.

During your trek to Meru Mountain, you will be escorted by a Mountain armed Ranger to guide you in case there will be some dangerous animals on the way.

Keep your eyes open and you will be rewarded with a sighting of baboons, giraffes, zebra, colobus monkeys, and a variety of birds.

The accommodation system in Meru is that of Huts rather than tents, so you will spend your nights in cozy yet spacious abodes you can find at these altitudes.

Creating Vibrant Memories for Adventure Aspirants
We had amazing experience with this Safari. We got so excited when the 4*4 car arrived at our hotel. Abdulrazak and his colleague were very professional and experienced. They knew the best spots in Tarangire national park and where to take the best photos. They were knowledgeable and the kids enjoyed their time. Highly recommended
My all Expectations for a life time safari was Excellent and it went as i expected the Experience was Amazing.

My kids and I had an amazing 4 days safari with Edwin and Hassan. Edwin gave us all explanations about wildlife, animals etc… Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Tarangire have no secrets for them.
Great company with great services, i recommend that you choose this company for safari based at serengeti national Park, tarangire national Park, manyara national park and ngorongoro conservation areas.
