A Mountain Rich in Beauty

In the shadows of Mount Kilimanjaro, rising from the savanna lays a lesser-known beauty.

Mount Meru is the fifth highest mountain in Africa and it is a sight to behold. This ancient dormant volcano has a unique shaped, forged 250,000 years ago by a massive volcanic blast. Forget high rises, Arusha has a mountain dominating their skyline.

This mountain is often treated as a warm-up trek to the big Kilimanjaro hike. However, hikers be warned, Mount Meru will test your limits. In many ways, the climb is more taxing and requires more skill and endurance to reach the summit. To reach the peak of Mount Meru, hikers will take the Momella route. The hike will take you anywhere from 2 to 6 days, depending on your fitness level.

Your hike will start at Momella Gate, located at 1,500 m. Already you will be treated to beautiful views of grassland and lakes. You’ll cross over the Ngare Nanyuki River and possibly spot a few elephants before you find your camp for the night. Every new chapter of the journey brings new sites, unique vistas and another climb that is sure to test your limits.
