This is a 3-day trekking adventure to the peak of Mount Meru, Tanzania’s second highest mountain, which stands at a height of over 4,500 metres. You will enjoy the flora and fauna of the area as you hike through the forested slopes as well as magnificent views from the summit. Day 1 After pick-up your driver/guide will take you to the Momella gate for registration. The tour starts at the second gate where we meet other groups that will also be hiking. You will be accompanied by the guide and a park ranger. This leg of the hike will take about 7-8 hours from the gate to Miriakamba hut, the first camp. On the way up you may see animals such as buffalo, giraffes, warthogs, elephants, monkeys, waterbucks, gazelles and others, if you’re lucky. At the first camp we will stop for lunch, dinner and rest for the night. Day 2 After breakfast we will proceed from Miriakamba hut to Saddle hut. This leg of the hike is shorter, approximately 5-6 hours long, but steeper. As we begin to ascend you will notice a difference in both temperature and vegetation. There are a few rest stops on the way if needed. On arrival at Saddle hut we will relax and have lunch before setting off in the evening for a short hike to Little Meru where we can enjoy the sunset. We return to Saddle hut where we will have dinner and spend the night. Day 3 This will be our last day on the mountain. Our hike up to the summit begins at midnight and will take about 6 hours. We should arrive at the top around 6 in the morning for the sunrise. We will have a short rest before going back to camp where we relax a bit more and prepare our stuff in order to return to the gate. We arrive at the starting point in the evening and you are then taken to your drop-off point.
