  •  Day 1: Arusha to Momella Gate to Miriakamba 

     We drive to Momella Gate where we complete registration formalities and a national park ranger is assigned to accompany our group. The track passes through open grassland where there is the possibility of spotting buffalo grazing in one of the clearings. Miriakampa Hut, situated in idyllic grassy glade, is reached in time to enjoy the afternoon sun and beautiful views over the surrounding plains towards Kilimanjaro

    Day 2: Miriakamba Hut to Saddle 

    The track from Miriakampa Hut to the saddle below Little Meru is a steep sustained trek that tests your legs. Our track takes us through beautiful and lush montane forest and striking tree species such as hygenium abyssinica, nuxia congesta, podocarpus, and hypericum tevolutum with mosses and lichens adorning the ground and trees.Around midday we reach the alpine zone of Saddle Hut 

    Day 3: Saddle Hut to Summit to Miriakamba Hut

     The first hour is a steep climb to Rhino Point (3800m/12,467ft), and then the path continues along a narrow but spectacular ridge of ash and rock to reach Cobra Point (4350m/14,272ft).Arriving at Saddle Hut mid morning, we enjoy brunch before retracing our steps to Miriakamba Hut.

    Day 4: Miriakamba Hut to Momella Gate-ArushaAfter a leisurely morning we complete our 2-3 hour descent taking the direct route through open grassland. By late morning we reach Momella Gate and receive our summit certificates, say farewell to our crew and have time for a short picnic lunch and game drive before returning to Arusha for a well deserved shower and fresh clothes.
