Mount Meru, Tanzania's third-highest peak, is a challenging but rewarding trek for adventurous travelers. Located in Arusha National Park, this scenic volcano offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape, including a variety of wildlife.

Our 4-day trekking tour takes you through four distinct vegetation zones, from grassland to alpine desert. The final ascent to the summit is steep, but the breathtaking panoramas from the top make it all worthwhile.

The Mount Meru climb is a great way to acclimatize for Mount Kilimanjaro, and it's also a challenging and rewarding trek in its own right. Overnight stays are in simple wooden huts, adding to the authentic African experience.
