It is a mystic place. Already the way to the waterfall is a big adventure. The entrance fee is for foreigners 20.000 Schilling. Persons with an invitation letter have to pay 15.000 Schilling (residence nothing). It is absolutely worth!

This is one of my favorite hikes in Arusha. The walk is amazing up the forest line through pine trees and into the magical forest then you arrive at the waterfall which is stunning and remote. Highly recommended!

In other reviews, a few others have referenced the Mt. Meru waterfall but I thought it deserved it's own page since it's a great day hike in Arusha. The tour can be organized in Arusha and it's best to use a tour guide since an...More
