Mount Kilimanjaro ©Tanzania Adventure

Kilimanjaro is the crown of Tanzania. At 5,895m (19,340ft), it is the highest mountain in Africa, the tallest freestanding mountain in the world and one of the largest volcanoes. The base of the huge mountain has a diameter of about 70 km. On a clear day, its impressive formation can be seen more than 160 km away, and although it is only three degrees below the equator, the summit is permanently covered with snow and ice. Elephants, leopards, lions and colobus monkeys are among the inhabitants of Mount Kilimanjaro National Park. The surrounding rain forests provide the fertility of the lush, lower-lying landscape where the Chagga cultivate their coffee, corn and bananas.
