Mount Meru Seasonal Camp
Mount Meru, Tanzania
Mount Meru Camp, set at nearly 6,500 feet in the ancient montane forest on the slopes of Mount Meru, is a fantastic off-the-beaten-track hideaway and the perfect jumping off point for our Kilimanjaro climb. Each tent features wood framed beds, en suite bathroom with a bucket-type shower and flush toilet, a small private veranda with a couple of chairs and washstand, and solar powered lighting. A lounge tent, set in an open glade, has a wide veranda to keep it cool during the heat of the day, and a separate mess tent serves wonderful food created by our resident chef over an open fire (a specialty is barbecued meat and vegetable kebabs). Mount Meru Camp is great for acclimatization, and the two nights here give you the head start that will help you get to the summit of Kilimanjaro.
