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 from Kilimanjaro, Mt. Meru, is a stratovolcano formed approximately at the same time as Kilimanjaro and the Great Rift Valley. Game and bird life are abundant, and guided walks (with an armed ranger) are the best way to explore this park.
Trekking Kilimanjaro is an excellent pre-acclimatization for those who want to climb the great Kilimanjaro. This fantastic trek takes approximately 3-4 days to climb the 14,980ft summit, where you can also explore spectacular views.
Mt Meru is not a technical peak, so you’ll need no climbing gear or mountaineering experience to reach the summit safely.
