4 Days : Mt. Meru Climb
At 4,566m, Mount Meru is the fifth highest mountain in Africa and the second highest mountain in Tanzania. Mount Meru ascent passes through many different vegetation zones. The dry forest of the lower region gives way to a dense mountain; the vegetation consists of health and moorland and is then finally replaced by the stunning baron alpine deserts. As the flora changes the wildlife does so too, which is diverse and equally impressive. During the ascent you will regularly come across large game such as elephants and buffalos but you may also come across leopards. Due to this it is obligatory to be accompanied by an armed park ranger on your tour.
