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 experience. 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.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Arusha/ Miriakamba. In the morning transfer from Arusha to Mommela gate from the gate proceed on trekking to Miriakamba. Lunch enroute, dinner and overnight Miriakamba camp.

Day 2: Drive to the park gate and walk through game-filled parkland up to Miriakamba Hut, at 2470m. Along the way there are many fine views; including Kilimanjaro from Miriakamba Hut.

Day 3: The path passes through fine forests and heather to the Saddle Hut, at 3500m, 3 hours walking. An ascent of Little Meru is possible in the afternoon.
