TANZANIA SAFARIS - Mount Meru Climbing Safaris
Mount Meru is Mount
Kilimanjaro's little sister, standing at 4,566m compared to 5,895m, but
is still an impressive freestanding volcano, which makes a superb four
day climb to the top. It last erupted in 1910 therefore can be
classified as an active volcano. The first ascent was made by Dr. Fritz
Jaeger, 1904. The town of Arusha lies at the base of Mount Meru
Trekking, loads of trek companies do this trek. Wild animals are
frequently found on this mountain therefore an armed ranger usually
accompanies the trekkers.
