Meru… where memories are made

Everyone knows Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa…but Mount Meru, Kili’s little sister, is one of Tanzania’s best-kept secrets.  It’s a timeless place of peace and beauty that’s only a short walk away from Tanzania’s cultural capital, Arusha, and within easy reach of National Parks – Ngorongoro, Tarangire, Lake Manyara and the Serengeti.

Discover Meru and you’ll discover a slower pace of life.  Among its beautiful landscapes, waterfalls and lakes, you’ll escape from the noise and hustle of the city, and find the tranquility that you’ve been craving for so long.

Discover Meru and you’ll discover the real Tanzania.  On Mount Meru, you’re a guest, not a tourist.  You’re welcomed with open arms into a vibrant community: giggling with little children as they dart out from between the banana trees, preparing and sharing traditional food made with love and care, and listening to the wisdom of the elders around the fire.


Discover Meru and it will touch your heart.  You won’t just take photos – you’ll make lifelong memories.  And we can almost promise that when you leave, you’ll already be thinking about how and when to come back again!


We offer something for everyone, whatever your age or fitness level. Your custom-made itinerary can include any or all of these activities:

Discover Meru is led by Steven E. Mollel, a local guide who grew up on the mountain and has been passionate about sharing it with visitors since 1999.

Steven Mollel from Discover Meru was one of the best tour guides I met in Tanzania.  He’s friendly and professional, and knows so many interesting facts about Meru and its people.  Our group included people from age 11 to 75 and he connected instantly with all of them, and was always alert and ready to help us with whatever we needed.

I can warmly recommend Steven Mollel’s guided trips in the slopes of Mount Meru, Arusha.  I have been hiking with him twice and it has been great!  The nature is so beautiful with a lot of different scenery.  The trip to the waterfall is in particular amazing. There is no feeling of a ‘classic tourist trip’, instead it feels very authentic to walk through the little towns and explore the local life.  Steven knows a lot about villages, culture, the nature and is updated about which walks are possible depending on rainy seasons.  So get your walking shoes on, grab a bottle of water and contact Steven!
