The view from here is very nice, you can see the summit ridge. We walk through the giant heather and moorland vegetation to the Saddle Hut at 3.570 m.

We will have a fantastic view on the crater rim, the Ash Cone rising up from the Crater floor and maybe Mount Kilimanjaro. From here we climb to the summit of Socialist Peak on 4.566 m, taking a steep way.
    The way back to Rhino Point is on a narrow ridge between the sloping outer wall of the crater and
    the sheer cliffs of the inner wall. It's one of the most dramatic and exhilarating walks in Africa. We take our breakfast at the Saddle Hut before we descend to Miriakamba Hut for dinner and an overnight stay at the hut. (Walking planing 10 - 12 hrs )

DAY 1

Nestled between Mt Meru and Mt Kilimanjaro, Ngurdoto Mountain Lodge is located within a lush coffee plantation, 140 acres, with natural streams flowing through the property, from Mt Meru.

The lush vegetation and the magnificent views of the snow capped Mt Kilimanjaro and the looming Mt Meru, right in front of the lodge, is an absolutely awesome sight. This lodge is ideally located between Arusha town and Kilimanjaro International Airport, 27 km either way.

DAY 2,3

Mount Meru is the fifth highest mountain on the African continent and the second highest in Tanzania and dominates the Arusha National Park with its huge cliffs. The mountain is often used as warm-up hiking in preparation for the Kilimanjaro. However, the technical requirements are greater on Mount Meru than on the Kilimanjaro Routes. On the four-day trekking tour, you are more than likely to see giraffes, buffalos, antelopes and baboons; therefore, a park ranger will accompany you for your safety.

DAY 4

The walk from Miriakamba Hut to the saddle below Little Meru is a short day but a steep climb. We slowly ascend through lush montane forest to reach the halfway point of Elephant Ridge. From here we enjoy excellent views of the summit ridge and across the crater floor. The path continues through giant heather and other fascinating moorland vegetation to reach Saddle Hut (3,570 m), where lunch is will be provided. The afternoon is free to relax and to enjoy the views. The more energetic can make the short climb to the nearby summit of Little Meru (3,820 m) for superb views just before sunset. (3-5 hours walking).
