Mount Meru trekking 3 or 4 days

The Mount Meru can be trekking for for 3 or 4 days read more…

Day 1 – Miriakamba
In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel and taken to Arusha National Park. At the Momella gate we finish 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 we reach a viewpoint before heading onto Miriakamba hut for dinner. Overnight Miriakamba hut.

Day 2 – Saddle Hut
We set off from Miriakamba initially still in the forest zone but in a few hours as we reach Saddle hut for lunch in the alpine desert zone. In the afternoon a walk to the summit of Little Meru can be taken for stunning views before heading back to Saddle Hut for dinner. Overnight Saddle Hut.

Day 3 – Miriakamba
We rise early and our 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. We return back and after some brunch at Saddle Hut, we continue down to Miriakamba hut for dinner.

Overnight Miriakamba hut (full board)

Day 4 – Momella Gate

The final section takes up to 3 hours to return to our vehicles where we say farewell to our crew and have time for a short picnic lunch and game drive before returning to Moshi for a well-deserved shower!
