Nyange Adventures

3 Days Meru Trekking

Overview

Mount Meru, at 4566 meters, is Tanzania’s second highest mountain. Mount Meru is located in Tanzania’s Arusha National Park and has some of the most breathtaking scenery and wildlife diversity of any mountain in the country. Meru trek is a difficult trek due to the rocky ridges and steep ascent to the peak. However, it is one of the best ways to gain experience with high altitude trekking and to acclimate for those who want to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Mount Meru trek takes you through areas where you can get a glimpse of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Itinerary

  • Arrival Day

    To make your trip as easy as possible, we can offer accommodation in Moshi/Arusha before and after the climb. Or if you’d prefer, you can stay at a hostel/hotel of your choice. We can also offer airport transfers to and from Kilimanjaro Airport/Arusha if required. A pre-climb briefing will be arranged with one of our mountain guides to ensure that you have all the correct mountain climbing gear (see our packing list for further information). We’ll also talk you through what will be expected during the climb and share all our best secrets for conquering the 5th highest point of Africa!

    Distance: 6km/3.5mi
    Hiking Time: 4-5 hours
    Meals: Lunch and Dinner

    It takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to drive from Arusha to Momella Gate. We will complete all procedures and depart for the trek once we arrive at the gate. The trek takes you to viewpoints from which you can see Mount Kilimanjaro and the renowned Momella lakes. During this day, trekkers encounter wildlife such as Bushbucks, Cape Buffaloes, Giraffes, and Warthogs. We walk for a short distance until we arrive at the Miriakamba hut.

Once you've settled in, we'll take a short hike to Little Meru (3810m) for acclimatization before returning to Saddle hut.

    Meals: Breakfast and Lunch

    We get up shortly after midnight and eat a light meal to keep our energy levels high. After finishing our meal, we begin the final ascent to Socialist Peak. This ascent will be steep, with us passing through gravel and rocky cliffs. This is the most mentally and physically demanding part of the journey. When you reach the summit, you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the Meru Crater and the Ash cone. Over the rocky ridge, there is a chance of seeing wildlife such as mountain Reedbucks and Klipspringers.
    We begin our descent from the summit by heading straight down to the Miriakamba hut.

Adventurous We had a great time with Nyange Adventures. They organised everything well. We did 3 days safari, one day with bushmen (amazing experience), one day hot-springs and one day waterfalls and coffee. Alen was our guide for safari and we really enjoyed his company.

Why pick another agency when there is Nyange out there?? The agency's moto "come as a client, leave as a friend" is 100% accurate! The guys really know how to make your experience as an "once inf a lifetime". They love their job and they are always enthousiastic to show you the most and explain to you everything. They have so much passion in what they are doing! They are friendly and hospitable and always willing to do more than a simple safari experience, which is ofcourse already exceptional! You will realize it the moment you see all other safari jeeps around :p. Thank you @NyangeAdventures for this amazing experience!!

ABOVE AND BEYOND! Do not look elsewhere Wow - what a blessed experience. Nyange's motto is "Come as a client, leave as a friend". We parted as family. Nyange organized my 6 day camping trip up Rongai route. My guide Erick was an absolute superstar - there is something unique about "entrusting your life" in someone's hands, and I felt a special bond with Erick who was like a father and brother at the same time, guiding me through the terrain, the emotions, the culture, the park, the mountain, and everything else. The level of professionalism displayed by Erick, and the whole cook and porter crew, exceeded all my expectations. I came with 0 equipment and Nyange helped me procure everything in record time from a local outfitter. The equipment provided by Nyange (tents, etc.) was high quality and excellent. Some highlights: -The staff and crew. Their manager Livin personally drove me all the way back to Arusha, stopped to get me cut fruit. Erick is a total professional who made this climb a heavenly, memorable and safe experience (even when I had doubts about my ability to make it). The cook and porters were amazing, always upbeat and supportive, always ready to give a helping hand. -The food and service. Excellent food (incredible considering we are at 5,000m altitude) including fried chicken, macaroni, etc. A+ -The knowledge and professionalism. From monkey and lion spotting to sharing stories about the mountain, and technical knowledge, this company does it all. -Company culture. Nyange takes pride in having assembled a stellar team of staff, guides, porters, cooks, and they CARE for their team as much as they do for their clients. The company is also extremely client-focused, and constantly innovating to find new ideas and ways of delighting their clients (post-hike celebration, etc.). I cannot thank Erick, Livin, Nyange Adventures and the whole crew enough. I will send EVERYONE I know who is interested in climbing Kili to Nyange. The people of this company made my trip extra special, even more so than summiting. Thank you so much - this was truly a special experience. A+ all the way.

Great Trek to Kilimanjaro The team of Nyange was extremely well organized and it was a pleasure to complete the 8 day trek. Our guides Joy and Geopron along with the rest of the team were very helpful and provided valuable input and support. This made the trek and summit night push to Uhuru peak at 5,895m very manageable. The food Mr. Flavour (Abu) prepared was incredible and the porters, waiters , support crew and camp manager Jimmy, made us feel welcome all the time . They had smiles on their faces all the time and their positivity made us feel at home. I also did a short 2 day safari to Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara, and a day trip to Materuni falls including a coffee tour and local lunch experience. All of those were well organized and executed too. I highly recommend Nyange's services to anyone who wishes to complete a Kilimanjaro trek, safari or another activity. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them!

Once in a Lifetime Experience TLDR: I would 10000% recommend booking your adventure with the Nyange team. You will not regret it!! From the very beginning, Nyange Adventures team were ROCK STARS! We decided last minute to go on an adventure to Mt. Kilimanjaro and likewise we had a million questions for the team as neither my boyfriend nor I had ever done anything like this before. Edwin, who we worked with on booking the trip, answered every single one of our questions and made us feel very comfortable with our decision to take this last minute trip halfway around the world. Once we got to Tanzania, the Nyange team handled every single part of the trip starting with booking our pre & post trip lodging and the transportation to/from the airport. The Chanya Lodge where we stayed was spectacular - a hidden gem in Moshi! They also helped coordinate covid tests for entry back into the US which was very helpful. Finally we get to the central part of the trip: THE CLIMB. We met with Erick and Nico - our two guides for the climb - the day before we actually left for the mountain. We went through everything that we brought for the climb and they were super helpful making sure that we had everything that we would need and organized renting any missing items. As someone who has never hiked or camped before, I was incredibly nervous starting off on Day 1 of our climb, but Erick & Nico were AMAZING guides and I realized very quickly that all I had to do was listen to their guidance and I'd make it to the top of the mountain! And then once we got to our first camp site, I realized that we weren't really camping - it was more like glamping. They had our tent already assembled, our bags, mattresses & sleeping bags already in place and they had a table with chairs all set up for our meal time. Every day we had 3 meals, with each being at least 2 course meals. We definitely did not lose weight on this trip! Just a few days into the climb it already felt like we were one big 12 person family (2 guides, 1 cook, 7 porters & the bf and I). We could especially feel it when we were coming down from the top of the mountain on summit day (yes we made it to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro!!! Again, HUGE shout out to our amazing guides Erick & Nico!!), the rest of the team all hiked about an hr up the mountain to come greet & congratulate us. It was a great feeling seeing them all there after such a long morning, it gaves us the energy we needed to get down the rest of the mountain! If you couldn't already tell, I am so thankful that we booked our trip with Nyange team and I'm already missing our time there!

Highly recommend Nyange!! We had an absolutely amazing time on Lemosho with Nyange. The crew was absolutely amazing - we loved all of the porters, our guides (Davis & Ibrahim), the stomach engineer Mohammed, our waiter and more! Also big shout out to Moody, Munguasosha, Salim & John Mosha for all their help along the way. The Nyange team made us ensure we safely made it to the top, while having fun along the way. The food was incredible - and there was so much of it! The porters and guides made us feel like family. We will 100% recommend Nyange to any of our friends and family going to Kili. We also did a 2 day safari in Ngorogoro/Tangire on the back end with Nyange and saw 4 of the 5 big 5 in only a day a half, which was great.

Safari de 2 dias en Taranguire y Ngorongoro Una gran experiencia, nuestro guía Allen nos ha acompañado de principio a fin, muy simpático, eficiente y detallista. Hicimos dos dias de safari, 1 dia en Taranguire y otro en Ngorongoro y nos encantó. El cráter de Ngorongoro es increible. Nos quedamos con ganas de más, por eso recomendamos mínimo 4 dias para estar también en Serengeti. Muy muy recomendable.
