Arusha National Park
Arusha National Park is in Northern Tanzania and is the home of Mt. Meru, the second-highest peak in Africa. Sixty kilometers away from Kilimanjaro, Mt. Meru is a stratovolcano formed at approximately the same time as Kilimanjaro and the Great Rift Valley. There’s an abundance of game and bird-life, guided walks (with an armed ranger) are the best way to explore this park.
Climbing Mt Meru is an excellent pre-acclimatization trek for those wanting to climb Kilimanjaro. It takes 3-4 days to climb to the 14,980ft summit, with spectacular views across to Mt. Kilimanjaro. Mt Meru is not a technical peak, so you’ll need no climbing gear or mountaineering experience to safely reach the summit.
