HIKING-ITINERARIES
MARANGU ROUTE (Coca cola Route)

This route has a moderate slope, making it less difficult to climb. That does increase the possibility of going to fast for your body to acclimate to the altitude however, so discipline is needed to remember to go “pole pole” (slowly).

Mt. Meru

Mt. Meru (Alt 4,566m) is the second highest mountain in Tanzania and one of Africa’s most beautiful volcanoes. It is overshadowed by Kilimanjaro, its famous neighbour, and frequently overlooked by most visitors to Tanzania. Meru is a spectacular mountain; the trek involves beautiful hiking through the grassland and forest on the mountain’s lower slopes, followed by a dramatic and exhilarating and, sometimes, tough walk to the summit. The summit is reached by a narrow, barren ridge which provides stunning views of the ash cone. Mt. Kilimanjaro can also be seen in the background. The other highlight of this route is the variety of wildlife that can be seen. Elephants, black and white colobus monkeys, buffalo, and baboon to name but a few. Overnight stay is in dormitory style huts.

 

 

Oldonyo Lengai

MOUNT OF GOD (alt 2886 meters)Ol Doinyo Lengai means “Mountain of God” in Massai language. It is a steep around 2900m high stratovolcano located in a section of the East-African Rift Valley in northern Tanzania, near the Ngorongongo and Serengeti National parks. The volcano is known for its unique type of natrocarbonatite lava and as such it is the only known active natrocarbonatite volcano on earth. Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano, altitude 2886m (9524 feet), is a unique and extremely fascinating volcano that towers above the East African Rift Valley in Northern Tanzania, just south of Lake Natron. It is the only volcano in the world that sometimes erupts natrocarbonatite lava, a highly fluid lava that contains almost no silicon.

 

Mt. Hanang

Remotely located on somewhat bumpy tracks 200km south-west of Arusha, Mt. Hanang’s extinct volcanic crater makes for a stunning feature above the otherwise undulating plains. The two-day climb takes trekkers through numerous tribal areas, including the land of the semi-nomadic Barabaig, recognizable by their goatskin garments.
