Tour Deatails

Mount Meru has been labelled ‘Kilimanjaro’s little brother’ due to the fact that it is the second highest mountain in Tanzania. The four day hike allows you to analyse the scenic landscapes in a leisurely manner but Mount Meru trekking will challenge your body’s limits. The climb to the summit doesn’t require an athlete or an extreme alpinist but you should be in relatively good shape. The elevated viewpoint of the Arusha National Park allows you to discover the beauty that lies in the savannah plains featuring bursts of colourful vegetation and the scattered wildlife. The towering Mount Kilimanjaro can be spotted in the distance of the landscape. Tranquil hikes through the luscious canopies and the narrow trails enclosing the U shaped crater provide you with the perfect opportunity to clear your mind. Reaching the summit is an experience you are unlikely to forget.

Itinerary

Day 1 : Kilimanjaro Airport to Moshi

We will arrange for a driver to transport you from the airport to your hotel. Orientation regarding your trek will take place at the hotel. Your guides will provide information about the trek and perform a comprehensive inspection of your gear. They will also clarify any further questions.

Day 2 : Moshi to Miriakamba Hut

We will promptly depart from the hotel in Moshi in the morning. Our expedition begins with a drive to Arusha National Park which will take approximately one hour. The variety of flora and fauna in the park is simply enchanting. The infamous film Hartari starring Hollywood’s legendary John Wayne and Hardy Kruger was shot in the park. Once you have completed the necessary park formalities, we will begin the trek near the Ngarenanyuki River. Your first waypoint is the Miriakamba. You can expect to encounter buffaloes, waterbucks, giraffes, warthogs, zebras and gazelles. There is no need to travel in fear, an armed ranger and a professional mountain guide will accompany you throughout your journey. Your guide will assist you in identifying the birds that you see. There are elephants and leopards within the park but they tend to be more reserved in comparison to the other wildlife. We will stop for the day once we reach the Miriakamba Hut, where we will enjoy an appetising dinner and spend the night.

Day 3 : Miriakamba Hut to Saddle Hut

The Mount Meru trekking excursion begins shortly after midnight. For the next five hours the light of your headlamp will guide you on the path. Ascending to the summit is the most difficult part of the trek. The high altitude make climbing to the top an arduous task. Once you reach the peak we will give you an opportunity to snap some pictures and recollect yourself. The downward journey is absolutely mesmerising because there are scenic views of the luscious mountains and vibrant landscapes. We have a leisurely lunch at the Saddle Hut but the journey is not over yet. We will walk for roughly two hours until we reach the Miriakamba Hut, where we will spend the night.

Day 4 : Karanga campsite to Barafu Campsite

The Mount Meru trekking excursion begins shortly after midnight. For the next five hours the light of your headlamp will guide you on the path. Ascending to the summit is the most difficult part of the trek. The high altitude make climbing to the top an arduous task.

Day 5 : Barafu hut campsite to Uhuru peak to Mweka hut campsite

We will enjoy a hearty breakfast at the camp and then we will commence the final part of the trek. The hike requires us to travel amid Meru’s cloud forest – which resembles an enchanted forest in a whimsical novel. The steep incline on the way to the Momela gate tends to be slippery, we urge you to step cautiously. When you arrive at the Momela Gate there will be an opportunity to buy sodas and Mount Meru trekking t-shirt.then drive back to Parkview Inn hotel in Moshi for overnight.
