The state of Tanzania (United Republic of Tanzania) is located in the eastern part of central Africa, washed by the Indian Ocean, in which there are a number of islands, including the archipelago of Zanzibar. The capital is Dodoma.

On the territory of Tanzania are: 15 National Parks, the highest mountain in Africa – Kilimanjaro (5895 m), the largest freshwater lake in Africa – Lake Victoria.

Kilimanjaro International Airport, located between the cities of Arusha and Moshi, approximately 50 km south-west from the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Mount Meru (4566 m), volcano – the second peak of Tanzania (After Kilimanjaro), is located in Arusha National Park, about 70 km south-west of Mount Kilimanjaro and is the fifth highest peak in Africa (after the Kilimanjaro volcano, the mountains of Kenya, the peak of Margherita and the mountains of Ras Dashen). Currently, the mountain consists of two peaks: the great Meru, which also bears the peak of Socialist (4566 m) and the small Meru (3820 m).

Climbing Mount Meru (4566 m) – good training and acclimatization before climbing Mount Kilimanjaro (5895 m). You will feel the reaction of your body to the height ("Mountain sickness") and determine your readiness to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

Mount Meru Climbing is a good path through a variety of terrain, a small number of tourists, beautiful landscapes that you will not see even on Kilimanjaro, a real walking safari among various animals: giraffes, buffaloes, monkeys, baboons, deer, roes, wild boars, zebras, elephants, etc.

Kilimanjaro is the highest point in Africa (5895 m), an extinct stratovolcano located in northeastern Tanzania, near the cities of Arusha and Moshi. The highest point of the mountain is Uhuru peak (5895 m). The peak was first conquered by Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtsheller in 1889. There are two more peaks, also extinct volcanoes: Mawenzi (5149 m, the third highest peak in Africa after Uhuru and the mountains of Kenya) and Shira (3962 m).

Climbing Kilimanjaro is carried out on such popular routes:

Marangu, Lemosho, Machame, Rongai, Umbre, Shira, Mweka, Northern Circuit Crater Routes

The number of days for climbing, from 5 (normal) to 10 days. It depends on the state of the group, how much you are ready to go, distances from 5 to 12 km every day, time from 5 to 7 hours.

In this tour, we will make a quick ascent along the route – Umbwe (Or on any equivalent route. This will be determined by the state and readiness of the group after climbing Mount Meru.)

Guides, Rangers
According to the rules of the park, in order to SAFETY, we are ALWAYS accompanied by an armed ranger !!! The team is led by a local certified English / French / German speaking guide.

Since we are in the equatorial climate zone, there are two seasons: wet (the rainy season reigns tentatively in April-May and November) and dry for the rest of the year. Accordingly, the ascents are held from January to mid-March, from mid-June to October and from mid-December to January

The menu on Kilimanjaro (Meru) is designed to ensure your food intake matches your level of exertion. It will provide you with a good balance of protein, carbohydrates, fruit and vegetables. When you are at altitude you could start to feel nauseous and your appetite may be suppressed, so the meals prepared at high altitude usually contain more carbohydrates and less protein to help you to digest your food. Your meals will be prepared by your cooks on Kilimanjaro and the food will be carried by your porters.

A typical day’s menu will include the following:


  • Porridge
  • Toast
  • Pancakes
  • Eggs
  • Smoked sausages
  • Fresh fruit (pineapple, melon or oranges)
  • Tea / Coffee / hot chocolate


  • Sandwiches
  • Fresh fruit
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Biscuits
  • Fruit juice


  • Soup
  • Pasta / Rice / Potatoes
  • Chicken / Beef
  • Vegetables
  • Salad
  • Fresh fruit
  • Snacks

You may wish to bring your own snacks to provide a well deserved treat, or energy boost! Chocolate is generally the best answer and if it has nuts in then even better, but whatever you choose make sure it is a favourite treat and not a ‘power bar’, or ‘energy gel’. If you are suffering from altitude sickness then your appetite may be suppressed and these snacks may become a good supplement to your meals, so make sure it is something that you enjoy eating! A powdered energy drink such as lucozade sport is also a good source of energy and will help with the taste of the water if you have been using iodine tablets.
