Arusha Tanzania - Mount Meru Hiking 1 Day Trip

Mount Meru Hiking Arusha Tanzania 1 Day Trip is a short and rewarding adventure in Arusha Tanzania, which is designed for guests who have limited time and who are not interested in reaching the summit of the second-highest mountain in Tanzania. The tour begins with collection from Kilimanjaro Airport, Arusha or Moshi, and is followed by a transfer to the Tengeru Cultural Centre 12 km from Arusha town, along the Arusha – Moshi road.
