The Meru Trek was absolutely amazing! The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and supportive throughout the journey. Reaching the summit and seeing the sunrise over Mount Kilimanjaro was a moment I’ll never forget.

Mauly Tours did an excellent job organizing the trek. Everything was well-planned, from the game drive in Arusha National Park to the acclimatization hikes. The huts were comfortable, and the food was great. Highly recommended!
