Kilimanjaro and Meru

Kilimanjaro and Meru

Dominating the horizon, the peaks of Kilimanjaro and Meru jut above the surrounding plains, remnants of Tanzania’s volcanic past. Lush tropical forests, high altitude plains, glacial ice and snow capped peaks; since the end of the 19th century these mountains have intrigued and beckoned those with the wanderlust. In October the Momella lakes are ringed with hundreds of thousands of flamingos; through the year the ubiquitous black and white colobus monkeys, with its distinctive long white bushy tail, are high in the rainforest; and the giraffe and buffalo are found on the lower plains of Meru.

For walking safaris and mountain climbs these two peaks are a must!
