Mt Meru, Arusha National Park

#1 of 13 in Things to do in Arusha National Park
Must see · Volcano · Nature / Park
Conquer Mt Meru, Africa's fifth-highest mountain. Its crescent shape comes from a volcanic explosion that completely destroyed one of its sides. As you climb towards the summit, you'll pass through different landscapes and vegetation, including rainforest, shrubland, moorland, and a desert. At lower levels, look for elephants, leopards, or buffaloes, and at the highest point follow a trail around the rim of the caldera. Because of possible animal encounters, you must hike accompanied by a park ranger. To visit Mt Meru on your holiday in Arusha National Park, and find out what else Arusha National Park has to offer, use our Arusha National Park.
