Rising from cultivated farmlands on the lower slopes, through lush rainforest to alpine meadows is the great Mount Kilimanjaro. Comprising of three volcanic cones; Kibo, the largest of the three and the only dormant peak, Mawenzi and Shira, which are both extinct, she is truly one of Africa’s most magnificent sights. Reaching nearly 5 kilometers from its base, Kilimanjaro is earth’s highest free-standing Mountain, and a notorious climbing destination.
Whether you do come to conquer it or simply to gaze in awe at this remarkable, snowcapped equatorial peak, you won’t be left disappointed. And for once in Tanzania, the protected area that surrounds the mountain is not about the wildlife, but the spectacular views.
