Best Hiking & Trekking Routes in Tanzania
Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most sought after peaks in the world. While it is a tough hike, and should not be underestimated, it is not a technical climb.
Trekking to the summit of Kili takes 6-8 days, and it’s important you choose your route carefully, and understand the limitations and risks of trying to do the hike on a budget.
There are also multi-day hikes in Western Kilimanjaro on the plains that are inhabited by the Maasai. These treks are much shorter and more suited to smaller budgets.
Kilimanjaro’s little brother, Mount Meru, might not come with the same bragging rights, but it’s still a fantastic hike.
It’s actually a bit more technical than Kilimanjaro, but still suitable for those without technical climbing knowledge.
It’s smaller than Kilimanjaro, so altitude sickness is not as much of an issue, and it is also much cheaper to climb. Many experienced climbers actually choose to climb Mount Meru in preparation for Kilimanjaro, but it also works great as a standalone adventure.
The slopes of Mount Meru are full of fascinating wildlife.
