The Mount Meru is part of the Arusha National Park and is at the western end of the park. In one day you can visit the extinct Ngurdoto Crater, the Momela Lakes and the lower slopes of the Mount Meru.

It is also possible to climb to the top of the Mt Meru. It will take about two days up and one day down. In Arusha there are travel agencies, where you can do the bookings for a three or five day trip.

The Mount Meru is a mixture of forest and bare rock. The Mt Meru has a spectacular crater. The Mount Meru is a dormant vulcano, the last eruption was 100 years ago.

During our visit to the Arusha National Park at a very cloudy day we hardly could see the top of the Mt Meru. In the late afternoon it appeared a bit out of the clouds, but the view became not really clear.

Address: Arusha National Park
Directions: 21 KM north east of Arusha.
