Mount Meru is one of Africa's highest and most beautiful volcanoes.

The route to the summit passes through parkland, mountain forest, a giant heather zone and moorland.

Finally, the summit is reached by a narrow, barren ridge which provides stunning views of the Ash Cone lying several thousand feet below in the crater and Kilimanjaro in the background, a truly breathtaking sight.
Over 400 species of birds plus a wide range of animals featuring the following rhinos, elephants, buffalos plus baboons, warthogs, black and white Colobus monkeys and lastly duikers all live in this delightful gem amongst parks'.
The visit to the Ngurdoto crater and Momella lakes, with their superb scenery, flamingoes and other wildlife, is also an unforgettable experience.


The group will be accompanied on Mount Meru by a Park Guide and porters. On the mountain we use dormitory style huts.

 A sleeping bag and mat are required for the huts, staying at the Momella Lodge is an optional extra. Momella lodge is located in Arusha Park, this is a tough walking trip with some steep terrain, but it is well worth the climb.
