    • Beginning at Momella gate, the path is not especially steep, and meanders though a plesant landscape.
    • In the lower regions we will see elephant, giraffes and herds of cape buffaloes.

Day 2:

    • MIRIAKAMBA HUT TO SADDLE HUT

    • The path continues to ascend steeply through the pleasant forest Glades and giant heather up to Saddle Hut.
    • A pleasant hiking trail leads us from the gap to Little Meru (3,800m). The view is said to be as beautiful as that from big Mt Meru.
