Mountain Climbing in Tanzania

From Mount Kilimanjaro to Mount Meru

Hiking trips and mountain climbing in Tanzania are becoming popular options for visitors not merely observing the country from the back of a game viewing vehicle. Instead, adventurous types are taking advantage of the many trails and peaks Tanzania has to offer.

Although Mt. Kilimanjaro tops the list as Africa´s most famous and highest mountain, Tanzania boasts other mountain ranges and attractive peaks (like Mt. Meru in Arusha National Park or the Crater Highlands in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area).

Mount Kilimanjaro

With an altitude of 5,895m, the Mount Kilimanjaro is the Roof of Africa, and the highest freestanding mountain in the word attracts thousands of professional and fresh climbers to attempt Mount Kilimanjaro challenges every year to summit its snow-capped top, Uhuru Peak. The scenic panorama view, abundant wild and birdlife, numerous campsites, and its extraordinary altitude level make Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro a wonderful experience. However, every small to big trek has its challenges, likewise; Mount Kilimanjaro is no different. You may have to face some Challenges with Mount Kilimanjaro climbing too.

Mount Meru

Mt. Meru which is Tanzania’s second highest mountain standing tall at 4,566m. It is located in Arusha National Park and offers some of the most spectacular scenery and wildlife diversity of any mountain in Tanzania. Mt. Meru is a challenging trek due to its steepness, but is a great way to acclimattize before attempting Mt. Kilimanjaro. Climbers are accompanied by an armed ranger due to the abundance of wildlife on the lower slopes. Mt. Meru also has some historical significance to it whereby some have suggested that it was the resting place of Noah’s Ark when it came to rest after the biblical flood receded. Mt. Meru is a great trekking option for those who want to take on a climbing challenge and get the sense of being out in the wild, but are not quite ready to tackle Mt. Kilimanjaro.
