Are you like me and have hard time staying put even for a day? Given my need to explore, regardless of having arrived to the hotel around 4am, we chose to go for a half day hike to a waterfall at Mount Meru on the first day of our holiday.
We had booked the hike with Hakuna Matata Tours which I can very highly recommend: super efficient communication, knowledgeable, kept timelines, and decent price.
I didn’t quite know what to expect from the hike and overall it was a positive surprise.
Our hike began on a dirt road that went past some of the local houses and plantations. Very soon, however, the hardest part of the hike started: 300m accent in super warm weather with direct sun light.
Once we reached the top, we went through some corn fields and other plantations.
Later, we also walked by a forest with beautiful views.
After some pretty deep descent (not for people with poor legs!), we reached a stream which we walked upstream for a while to reach the waterfall. Here, a lot of local children followed us and tried to help, clearly looking for some donations.
The Waterfall itself is not that big but overall a good excuse for the hike 🙂
After the waterfall, it was only a short hike to the car which had come to pick us up from a picnic area.
All in all, highly recommended!
