Kilele Climb Tours

Tour Deatails

This hike to the peak of Mount Meru is completed in three days. Situated at the heart of the Arusha National Park, Mount Meru overlooks the spectacular plains of the savannah. Meru was sculpted into its distinctive shape thousands of years ago when a volcanic blast destroyed an immense bulk of the eastward flank of the mountain. The fertile slopes are home to a vast range of wildlife. The climb to the summit alongside the volcanic caldera doesn’t require an athlete or an extreme alpinist but you should be in relatively good shape. Mount Meru climbing entails steep slopes, it can be challenging but you won’t regret conquering it. The enchanting view and diverse wildlife of Kilimanjaro’s little brother make this the ideal trek for an adventurous thrill seeker.

We will promptly depart from the hotel in Moshi in the morning. Our expedition begins with a drive to Arusha National Park which will take approximately one hour. The variety of flora and fauna in the park is simply enchanting. The infamous film Hatari starring Hollywood’s legendary John Wayne and Hardy Kruger was shot in the park. Once you have completed the necessary park formalities, we will begin the trek near the Ngarenanyuki River. Your first waypoint is the Miriakamba. You can expect to encounter buffaloes, waterbucks, giraffes, warthogs, zebras and gazelles. There is no need to travel in fear, an armed ranger and a professional mountain guide will accompany you throughout your journey. Your guide will assist you in identifying the birds that you see. There are elephants and leopards within the park but they tend to be more reserved in comparison to the other wildlife. We will stop for the day once we reach the Miriakamba Hut, where we will enjoy an appetizing dinner and spend the night.
