What are the differences between Meru and Kilimanjaro?

Mt. Meru is the second highest mountain of Tanzania (4.562m and the 6th highest of the whole continent of Africa), situated in the Arusha National Park. The mountain is not far from the Kilimanjaro.

So Meru is less high and has fewer visitors yearly because it’s not the highest mountain. Meru doesn’t have Glaciers. Something that the Kilimanjaro does have. On the other hand, does Maru have more rough landscapes and the chances of seeing wildlife are bigger!

Meru can be conquered in three days (the Kilimanjaro in a minimum of five days) and the climb is less difficult most of the time.

Climbing Meru can be perfect acclimatization before conquering the Kilimanjaro.
