Mt MeruMount Meru

Mount Meru is located to the East of the "Great Rift Valley" in the Arusha National Park, Northern Tanzania, near the Kenyan border. With its 4566 meters, it is the fifth-highest mountain in Africa and the second highest mountain in Tanzania, also known as "the Kilimanjaro’s little sister". Like the other mountains of this region, Mt. Meru emerged during a long active volcanic history and offers visitors a breath-taking view. The lava flow that was in motion until 1910 is still clearly visible. The climb is relatively steep and leads through streams, wet savannahs, mountain laurel forests and moorland. The lower slopes of Mt. Meru are covered with dense highland forest and a diverse fauna, which offers an optimal environment to buffalo, waterbuck, zebra, elephant, Colobus monkeys and baboons.
