Trekking Africa’s Fifth-Highest Peak
Avid explorers will be delighted at the great variety of climbing and hiking options on offer in Tanzania with their spectacular scenery and the opportunity to spot wildlife such as giraffe, colobus monkeys, baboons, elephants and antelope. Besides Kilimanjaro (5 895 m) with seven official trails that lead to Uhuru peak at the Kibo Crater, climbers are also attracted to Mount Meru (4 566 m) which is Africa’s fifth-highest peak and offers fantastic views of Mount Kilimanjaro and the Momela Lakes from the summit. There is also the very steep and challenging Ol Donyo Lengai (active volcano) which is only recommended for fit hikers taking them through some fantastic scenery with panoramic views of the Rift Valley.
Other mountains in Tanzania include Mount Hanang (3 417 m), Longido (2 629 m), Usambara Mountains, Mount Lemagrut, Mount Lolmalasin, Mount Oldean and the Uluguru Mountains, with the most popular time for trekking being between July and October.
