Conquer Mt Meru, Africa's fifth-highest mountain. Its crescent shape comes from a volcanic explosion that completely destroyed one of its sides. As you climb towards the summit, you'll pass through different landscapes and vegetation, including rainforest, shrubland, moorland, and a desert. At lower levels, look for elephants, leopards, or buffaloes, and at the highest point follow a trail around the rim of the caldera. Because of possible animal encounters, you must hike accompanied by a park ranger.
