MT. MERU


MOUNT MERU

Mount Meru is one of Africa's highest and most beautiful volcanoes. The mountain is located within Arusha National Park. This prime location gives climbers the opportunity to spot over 400 spicies of birdlife and wildlife that inhabit the area e.g. rhino, elephant, buffalo, baboon, warthog, black and white Colobus monkey and duiker are all found in this delightful 'gem amongst parks'. The route to the summit passes through parkland, montane forest, a giant heather zone and moorland.

Finally, the summit is reached by a narrow, barren ridge which provides stunning views of the Ash Cone lying several thousand feet below in the crater and Kilimanjaro in the background. The visit to the Ngurdoto crater and Momella lakes, with their superb scenery, flamingoes and other wildlife, will be a memorable experience.
