|Mt Meru just outside of Arusha is a beautiful mountain to hike, great for pre Kilimanjaro acclimatization or as part of a trilogy of East Africa's highest peaks. Also superb pre safari for hikers or the adventurous. A 4 day hike to the summit of Mt Meru through verdant afromontane forest into high altitude alpine desert with stunning views of a dormant volcano.
|| As a stand-alone mountain it's a great hike. Climbers are required to sleep in huts. Signs and possible sightings of wildlife on foot, afromontane forest, less busy than Kilimanjaro, excellent bird life and game drives in Arusha National Park. One of the most underrated hikes in East Africa.
