Mount Meru is an often overlooked, but the spectacular volcano located in the centre of Arusha National Park.

At 14,980 feet high, Meru serves as a great warm-up to Mount Kilimanjaro or a complete standalone hike. The crowds of Kilimanjaro are non-existent here, allowing for a solitary, peaceful trek. Accommodations are in wood huts. On the lower slopes of the mountain and inside the park, there is a good chance of spotting animals.

An armed ranger will accompany your party on the first stage to protect against any wildlife threats. The trail follows the north rim of the crater, along a dramatic ridgeline. Once at the summit, the views of Mount Kilimanjaro and down into Meru crater are unforgettable. Tanzania Private Select Safaris offers Mount Meru as a four-day private climb. However, clients from different parties and operators are often combined to walk with the armed ranger on the lower slopes.
