Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
Mt. Kilimanjaro National Park is one of the most visited locations in Tanzania. Its major feature is the snowcapped mountain found at the center of the park. Visitors from around the world travel to Kilimanjaro for the opportunity to climb Africa’s tallest mountain, which is also one of the highest freestanding mountains in the world. Surrounding Mt. Kilimanjaro’s base, travelers will find terrain that varies from alpine meadows and beautiful rainforests, to barren landscapes and twin volcanic summits. Many different types of animals can be found within these various areas such as monkeys, leopards, elephants, buffaloes, and the occasional eland. Those who come to Kilimanjaro to journey up the mountain should have appropriate footwear and clothing for the trek. Special equipment or experience is not necessary, but the altitude beyond Uhuru Peak can cause difficulties for some climbers.
