TANZANIA’S BEST MOUNTAINS TO VISIT
Tanzania is home to some of the most diverse mountain ecosystems on the planet, including imposing volcanoes and lush, verdant forests that are home to a wide variety of endangered species. Trekkers will be relieved to learn that there is still so much to see after reaching the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro.
For outings or multi- climbs, we’ve compiled a list of some of Tanzania’s top mountain itineraries. As several of these mountains are found in protected national parks, kindly take note that we always advise checking the most recent park fees before to your visit.
Mount Kilimanjaro, one of the seven peaks and Africa’s tallest peak, comes in last but certainly not least. This dormant volcano draws thousands of hikers each year who want to try their hand at climbing the peak as it doesn’t require any technical expertise.
There are six main routes that take between seven and ten s to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. There are several different microclimates on the mountain, including glaciers, alpine meadows, and rainforests. While climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is not for the faint of heart, most people can achieve this once-in-a-lifetime adventure with a little bit of advance planning.

Although Mount Meru is frequently used as a warm-up walk for Mount Kilimanjaro, it is also a stunning place to visit on its own. Tanzania’s second-highest mountain, Mount Meru, is situated in Arusha National Park and provides vistas of the Momela Lakes and Ngurdoto Crater as well as a plethora of animals, including monkeys, buffalo, and elephants.
Here, routes typically take four to five s. Before arriving at the horseshoe-shaped crater of the dormant volcano with its intimidating drop-offs, hikers will pass through woods and glades. Mount Meru is quite a little lower than Mount Kilimanjaro, rising 4566 meters above sea level. Even without glaciers at the top, it is still sufficiently high to cause altitude sickness, so be ready.
