4 Days Mount Meru

Tour Overview

A 4 day hike to the summit of Mt Meru, the third highest peak in Tanzania, through verdant afromontane forest into high altitude alpine desert with unparalleled views of a dormant volcano.

A beautiful mountain to hike. Great as a pre Kilimanjaro acclimatization or as part of a trilogy of East Africa’s highest peaks. Also, a superb pre safari for keen hikers or the adventurous.

Tour Timeline

Day 01: Miriakamba Hut
In the morning you are collected from your hotel and transferred to Arusha National Park. At the Momella Gate we complete registration formalities before setting off with your guide and armed ranger. There is abundant wildlife in the forests! The forest section is especially scenic with strangler figs and the possibility of seeing buffalo grazing in one of the clearings. In the late afternoon you reach a viewpoint before heading on to Miriakamba Hut for dinner.
Day 02: Saddle Hut
You set off from Miriakamba Hut, initially still in the forest zone, but in a few hours as you reach Saddle Hut for lunch in the alpine desert zone. In the afternoon a walk to the summit of Little Meru (Alt: 12,532ft, 3820m) can be taken for stunning views before heading back to Saddle Hut for dinner.
Day 03: Summit Bid / Miriakamba
You rise early and your hard work is rewarded at dawn as the sun rises to the East. Kilimanjaro is normally clearly seen from here and the sheer cliffs of the crater fall dramatically 1000 feet or more. After taking photos at Socialist Peak (Alt: 14,978ft, 4,565m) you return to our base camp at Saddle Hut. After some brunch, you continue down to Miriakamba Hut for dinner.
Day 04: Arusha
The shorter final section takes up to 4 hours to return to our vehicles where you say farewell to our crew and have time for a short picnic lunch and game drive before returning to Arusha for a well-deserved shower!
Upon arrival, you will be met by a representative of Lemala Adventures to congratulate you and answer any other questions you may have.
