Mount Meru Climbing

It can be seen from Mount Kilimanjaro on a clear day and, depending on how you count, is the fifth-highest mountain in Africa. Climbing Mount Meru, the second-highest mountain in Tanzania, is great because there’s no traffic and you can see a lot of wildlife as you hike.

Mount Meru: Facts to Know

-At 4,566m, it is Tanzania’s second-tallest mountain. On the first day of the climb, we saw a lot of wildlife.
-Great climb to get used to the altitude before tackling Kilimanjaro
-Ascent and descent on the Momela route over 3 days
– Huts that look like dormitories
Mount Meru Climb usually takes four days, but it can be done in three days. Even on this lower peak, getting used to the altitude is the key to success. All trekking groups start at Momella Gate and take the same path up the mountain.

Hikers will stay in a series of huts on their way to the top. Two different campsites have simple but comfortable rooms for hikers to stay in before they reach the top, which is at a place called Socialist Peak.
Travelers can get two benefits from climbing Mount Meru. First, it gives trekkers a smaller version of what it’s like to climb Kilimanjaro. This is a great adventure for people who don’t have a lot of time or don’t want to deal with the higher altitude on Kilimanjaro.

But perhaps more importantly, it’s a great way to prepare for the bigger challenges they’ll face on Kilimanjaro, taking some of the mystery and acclimatization process out of the picture before they even set foot on the mountain.

Mangokili Advenrures offers Mount Meru 3 day or 4 day Climbs. On the lower slopes, though, clients from different groups and operators often walk together with the armed ranger.

Kilimanjaro Hike and visit of Tarangire and Ngorongoro Nationalpark We spent around 10 days with Mangokili adventures doing both a hike up Kilimanjaro, along the Lemosho route and visiting Ngorongoro and Tarangire Nationalpark. The hike up Kilimanjaro was amazing and the support we received by the team in terms of service and kindness was great, we really loved it. Also the trips to the Nationalparks were great and very interesting.
Gian Luca Reiss
Very nice! We were a group of 3 friends who climbed the Kilimanjaro with the Lemosho-Route in 6 days (normally 7 days) and did a 2-day safari afterwards. From the point of interest to the actual engagement, every worry and question was taken care of by Mangokili Adventures. The organization worked out super well. We had 2 great guides, 11 great porters for the Kilimanjaro-hike and 1 great guide for the safari. Especially good for trips with a budget. We paid in total about 2.400 USD.Super content.

The tour was great with a very friendly guide and driver, the accommodation was outstanding The tour was great with a very friendly guide and driver, the accommodation was outstandingThe communication was great, always replied to our questions. The driver was good and even helped us spot animals on the safari while driving, the guide was easygoing and replied to any of our questions.The accommodation should be displayed as premium, we did not expect to arrive at a toilet inside the room, a bottle of water to brush your teeth, soap and clean towels provided, amazing food and chef, a lounge to chill and take beers/drinks. Pictures of the accommodation and food should be displayed as it was way more than we expected given the surroundings
