Often used as warm-up hiking in preparation for the Kilimanjaro, Climbing Mount Meru is just a challenging and you need to have some climbing experience before trekking this second-highest Mountain in Tanzania. Known for its huge cliffs and green surroundings, the slopes of this epic mountain forms the Center of Arusha National park and will give you a really unique experience. On your trekking, you have greater chances of seeing various animals and a lot of birdlife.
With this itinerary, after the summit, you will descend directly to the exit gate- the Momella gate. Therefore this itinerary requires some kind of physical fitness to endure the long walk from the summit to Momella gate.
Day 1 – Momella Gate (1,500 meters) to Miriakamba Hut (2,500 meters):
Africa Nature Photography will pick you up from your hotel in Arusha or Moshi and transfer you to Arusha national park. At Momella gate, our guides will process registration for the climb. After all registration formalities have been completed you will start your hike up through a montane forest. We will be accompanied by a ranger from Arusha national park. You will walk through a forest, then an open land where you can spot wild animals such as zebra, giraffes, and buffalos. It may seem like a walking safari.
On a clear day, you will have a great view of Mount Kilimanjaro when you are at Miriakamba Hut.
You will have your dinner at Miriakamba’s big dining room and go to rest in your cubic ready for tomorrow’s hike to the base camp.
