Climb the second largest peak in Tanzania


Mount Meru is located within Arusha National Park. It is a non-active volcanic mountain composed of both lava flows and pyroclastic materials and is the second highest mountain in Tanzania with less snow.
Most alpines climb this mountain for acclimatization purposes before their Kilimanjaro bid. It takes three days to climb Mount Meru, but one extra day for acclimatization is recommended before climbing.
During the climbing, a group of armed rangers accompany climbers as they pass through the Arusha National Park.
The park is one of the popular walking safaris parks in Tanzania. The beautiful flora and fauna can be viewed on the way top. Animals like buffalos, klipspringers antelopes, zebras, giraffes, warthogs, leopards, and waterbucks, hyenas, including black and white colobus, vervets and blue monkey.
