Embarking from Moshi, we embark on a scenic drive to Momela Gate, where our exciting journey unfolds. With the accompaniment of an armed ranger, we set off on foot, greeted by an array of magnificent wildlife along the way.
From majestic elephants and graceful zebras to towering giraffes and playful monkeys, the trail comes alive with the sights and sounds of the African savannah. As the day draws to a close, we find solace at the Miriakamba Hut, indulging in a hearty dinner and relishing a well-deserved night’s rest amidst the serenity of the wilderness.

In the early hours, we commence our ascent, climbing steeply to Rhino Point and Cobra Point, reaching the summit (4,566 m) in time for a mesmerizing sunrise. From the summit, we marvel at the possibility of glimpsing Kilimanjaro’s peak above the clouds.
After a restful break at Saddle Hut, we embark on the descent towards Momella Gate, where our returning transfer awaits, ready to transport us back to our hotel in Moshi, concluding our remarkable adventure on Mount Meru.
