Mount Meru has been labelled ‘Kilimanjaro’s little brother’ due to the fact that it is the second highest mountain in Tanzania. The four day hike allows you to analyze the scenic landscapes in a leisurely manner but Mount Meru trekking will challenge your body’s limits. The climb to the summit doesn’t require an athlete or an extreme alpinist but you should be in relatively good shape. The elevated viewpoint of the Arusha National Park allows you to discover the beauty that lies in the savannah plains featuring bursts of colorful vegetation and the scattered wildlife. The towering Mount Kilimanjaro can be spotted in the distance of the landscape. Tranquil hikes through the luscious canopies and the narrow trails enclosing the U shaped crater provide you with the perfect opportunity to clear your mind. Reaching the summit is an experience you are unlikely to forget.


Kilimanjaro Airport i

On arrival you are personally met by one of our representatives and transferred to Arusha to a well appointed hotel. In the afternoon there is a full briefing with the climbs Manager and your guide. Dinner is included at your hotel.

Arumeru River Lodge

Arusha to Miriakamba Hut

We will promptly depart from the hotel in Arusha 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. 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 your dinner and spend the night. Read more

Miriakamba Hut

Miriakamba Hut to Saddle Hut

After an energy dense breakfast is served at the camp, we will travel along the steep path to the Saddle Hut. You can trek to little Meru and return to the Saddle Hut for dinner. It is recommended that you try to fall asleep shortly after dinner as the journey to the summit begins at midnight.

Saddle Hut

Saddle Hut to Miriakamba Hut

The Mount Meru trekking excursion begins shortly after midnight. For the next five hours the light of your headlamp will guide you on the path. Ascending to the summit is the most difficult part of the trek. The high altitude make climbing to the top an arduous task. Once you reach the peak we will give you an opportunity to snap some pictures and recollect yourself. The downward journey is absolutely mesmerising because there are scenic views of the luscious mountains and vibrant landscapes. We have a leisurely lunch at the Saddle Hut but the journey is not over yet. We will walk for roughly two hours until we reach the Miriakamba Hut, where we will spend the night. Read more

Miriakamba Hut

Miriakamba Hut to Momela Gat

We will enjoy a hearty breakfast at the camp and then we will commence the final part of the trek. The hike requires us to travel amid Meru’s cloud forest – which resembles an enchanted forest in a whimsical novel. The steep incline on the way to the Momela gate tends to be slippery, we urge you to step cautiously. When you arrive at the Momela Gate there will be an opportunity to buy sodas and Mount Meru trekking t-shirts. Our Safari vehicle will transport you back to Arusha. Read more

Expect in Africa Safari exceeded my expectations. Our driver was Raymond. Raymond was extremely knowledgeable, he had an answer for every question we had. He was able to use his knowledge of birds and animals to locate every animal we wanted to see. He was professional and kind. We will be returning with our children and using Raymond again. We also loved the accommodations. We felt safe and the tents were clean and spacious. If you are considering safari, this company is who you need to book with. Read more

The trip with Expect in Africa Safari was a spectacular "endless plain" of big game and beautiful wildlife. Our driver and guide was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable, and made every effort to give us a trip of a lifetime!

We choose Expect In Africa Safari because it matched our needs. A small business who is ran perfectly. We had all the information we needed before to do the safari for 2 days. They helped to choose the best option for the national park. We choose Tarangire and Ngorogoro Crater. During the safari, the guide was great always taking time to explain us the wildlife and other facts about the park. He has a lot of experience. The accommodation they booked for us was beyond expectation. Overall the safari was amazing and we saw a lot of animals especially babies lions. I recommend them. Read more
