Der Mount Meru ist ein spektakulärer Vulkan im Zentrum des Arusha-Nationalparks. Auf 4.566 m (14.980 Fuß) ist Mt. Meru eine großartige Option, um sich zu akklimatisieren, bevor man den Kilimanjaro besteigen möchte, oder kann als eigenständige Wanderung unternommen werden. Mt. Meru verbindet die Schönheit des Arusha-Nationalparks mit der Herausforderung, einen der höchsten Berge Afrikas zu besteigen. Die Tour bietet eine abwechslungsreiche, anspruchsvolle Bergtour. Übernachtet wird in einfachen Holzhütten. An den unteren Hängen des Berges und innerhalb des Parks besteht eine gute Chance, Wildtiere zu beobachten. Ein bewaffneter Ranger wird die Gruppe auf der ersten Etappe begleiten, um sich vor Bedrohungen durch Wildtiere zu schützen. Der Weg folgt dem Nordrand des Kraters entlang einer dramatischen Kammlinie. Auf dem Gipfel angekommen, ist die Aussicht auf den Kilimanjaro und hinunter in den Meru-Krater unvergesslich.

Man sollte Mt. Meru nicht unterschätzen. Die richtige Vorbereitung und die richtige Ausrüstung sind immer der Schlüssel zu einer erfolgreichen Bergtour.

Tanzania Horizon Safaris bietet den Mount Meru als 3-Tages- und 4-Tages-Tour an.
