Mount Meru Grade B (final 100m - C) Fully porter supported
Mount Meru is one of Africa's highest and most beautiful volcanoes.
The route to the summit passes through parkland, montane 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. Over
400 species of birds, rhino, elephant, buffalo, baboon, warthog, black
and white Colobus monkey and duiker are all found in this delightful "gem
amongst parks". The visit to the Ngurdoto crater and Momella lakes, with
their superb scenery, flamingoes and other wildlife, is an unforgettable
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.
Accommodation at Momella Lodge is an optional extra. Momella
lodge is located in Arusha Park.
This is a tough walking trip with some steep terrain.
