Standing tall in Kilimanjaro National Park is Africa’s highest Mountain, Mt. Kilimanjaro, standing at 5,895 metres. Located about one hour's drive from Kilimanjaro Airport, a journey to Mt. Kilimanjaro’s summit is not merely a climb, but an exploration into the heart of the world's highest free-standing mountain.
Mount Kilimanjaro can be climbed in 6-8 days depending on the route. The longer the route, the more time you have to acclimatise to this beast of Africa.
Mount Meru is one of the biggest attractions of Arusha National Park, located about 45 minutes from Kilimanjaro International Airport. Mt. Meru, at 4,562m is the second highest Mountain in Tanzania, following after Mount Kilimanjaro.
While it’s a wonderful trek on its own, trekking Mount Meru is a great way to acclimatise for those who are planning to go on a Mount Kilimanjaro Trek. You can choose from a 3 day or a more relaxed 4-day trek.
