Mt. Meru is a great trekking option for those who want to take on a climbing challenge and get the sense of being out in the wild, but are not quite ready to tackle Mt. Kilimanjaro. Nice view of Arusha city and its landscape during trekking will leave behind with full memory of this scenic Mountain. The Meru Mountain gives you a great warm-up trek for those who have the time and are looking for an even bigger adventure. Mount Meru climbing is very rewarding.

Things To Pack:

For Mount Meru trekking you can use our ultimate Meru packing mentioned list as a guide for what to bring along while you’re hiking to the Roof of Africa. We’ve packed this Meru trekking Packing List with our trail tested favorites and recommendations, plus lots of useful info on the best gear for adventuring in all of Mount Meru conditions during trekking moments

Pair of Hiking Boots.

The most important thing you’ll bring! Make sure they are Gore-Tex, have ankle support, and that you’ve broken them in well.

Sunscreen and Lipscreen.

This is a must have for being in the strong mountain sun all day! Bring a new, full tube with an SPF rating of 30+.

Water Bladder.

Staying hydrated is so important while hiking at high altitudes! We highly recommend getting a 3 L water bladder with an insulated tube and cap. It’s the easiest way to carry and drink water while trekking.

Polarized Sunglasses.

You have to protect your eyes from the fierce equatorial sun! Make sure they are UV-blocking and polarized

Trekking Poles.

These are MANDATORY, and a life (and knee) saver on tricky terrain. Make sure they are collapsible, for easy stashing, and simple to adjust for up and downhill.

Insect Repellent.

One of the challenges of going on safari are the insects. We recommend bringing a good one with no bad smell to apply each day to help prevent insect bites.

Water Bottle.

Bring a 1 L wide mouth, BPA free plastic Nalgene water bottle. You’ll want this on summit night when your water bladder might freeze.

Camera and Extra Batteries.

There are so many amazing photo ops! We highly recommend bringing a camera that is compact and durable. These days most smartphones have great cameras, and we’ve found DSLRs can be cumbersome while trekking, so think twice before bringing anything too fancy. Remember to always pack your electronics in waterproof bags or cases.

Pair of Hiking Pants.

You’ll want a few pairs of pants to last you the entire trek. Bring at least one pair of shorts or capris for the hotter days in the rainforest, and a few pairs of long pants or leggings to layer on as it gets colder.


Don’t forget the travel essentials like travel sized deodorant, sun screen, lotion, hair ties, hair brush, face wipes, tampons, contact solution, toothbrush, toothpaste, hand sanitizer, masks, and ear plugs etc.

Head Lamp.

This is important for after the sun sets, and on summit night when we’re hiking through the night. Be sure to start the trek with fresh batteries, and bring a spare set just in case.

Outer Layer Jacket.

A breathable, water and wind proof jacket with a hood that you can wear comfortably over all your layers. This is a must-have at higher altitudes and to layer on in the case of rain.
