This 2 week Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro trek is for those avid trekkers seeking the thrill of adventure in Tanzania. You can consider trekking Mount Meru as a warm-up to climbing the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro. For the more adventurous traveler, we recommend our 14-day journey, which includes not only Kilimanjaro’s grandeur and majesty but also Mount Meru, Kilimanjaro’s younger sister, and nearest neighbor. The 2-week tour lets you climb two of the highest mountains in Tanzania. Meru is a rough jewel with a dramatic volcanic past that shaped it into its distinctive shape – but don’t worry, the most recent eruption was almost a century ago! It dominates the park’s horizon, set amidst the splendor of Arusha National Park. The park’s rich plains and lakes are teeming with species, including monkeys, giraffe, zebra, timid dik-diks, leopard, and spotted hyena, which you may see as you go up Meru’s slopes.
And it’s not an easy climb — Africa’s fifth highest peak is a difficult journey in and of itself, but it’s ideal for three-day acclimatization before your next challenge, Kilimanjaro. Kilimanjaro is impossible to describe in words. You must see it for yourself. It’s not only about the brilliant skies, verdant slopes, desolation of the highest reaches, or breathtaking views. It’s about your own tenacity, endurance, and perseverance in the face of a difficult but beautiful task. You’ll not only be able to appreciate the natural beauty of the climb, but you’ll also learn more about yourself at the conclusion of your journey. It’s a great thing to have knowledge.
