- Mount Meru: not far away from Mount Kilimanjaro is its smaller counterpart, Mount Meru, which at 4565 metres is still a feat to conquer and is Africa’s fifth highest peak.
Our Mount Meru Climbing itinerary will take you up to the summit of this magnificent mountain, whilst also giving you the opportunity to spot wildlife on its lower slopes. The views are stunning: the cliffs of the Crater rim, the Ash Cone rising from the crater floor, Kilimanjaro floating on the morning clouds, and the Rift Valley. All guides have "Wilderness First Responder" and "Wilderness First Aid" certificates, along with over 7 years of experience in climbing. At the end of the tour, you will receive an International certificate for a successful ascent!
