Mt Meru trekking safari is a four day trekking safari. Is the second highest mountain in Tanzania, at 4566metre (14,979 feet?)

It is overshadowed by Kilimanjaro, its famous neighbour, and frequently overlooked by visitors. But Meru is a spectacular mountain; a trek involves beautiful hiking through the grassland and forest on the mountain’s lower slopes, followed by a dramatic and exhilarating ridge-walk to the summit.
