Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa highest mountain (5,895 meters). To be in its presence either near of far, and to see the granular of its giant dome tower so far, far up into the sky above the surrounding plains is one of life’s travel experience. You can but gaze at it in wonder and awe inspiring and feel deeply humbled by the sheer magnificent of it. These is why many travelers want to get there, embrace it, climb it.

It is a volcano and rises alone out of an expensive landscape of hills and plains that are level. This makes it the world’s highest free standing mountain as measured from the surrounding plains to its summit.

Five eco-climatic zones take you to the equivalent of a trip from the equator to the arctic in a brief tour. As one climb Kilimanjaro, vegetation and weather changes in response to the changing elevation

  1. Cultivated Zone.
  2.  Rain Forest.
  3. Heath / Moorland Zone.
  4. Alpine Desert.
  5. Arctic Region.
