Situated in the northeastern part of Tanzania lies Kilimanjaro National Park, an area designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of Africa’s seven Natural Wonders. This park spans an approximate expanse of 75,575 hectares and encircles the largest freestanding volcanic mass globally, including the towering peak that ranks as Africa’s highest mountain. From its base at 4,877 meters above the surrounding plains, the mountain ascends to a majestic height of 5,895 meters at Uhuru Peak. This peak, an integral part of the Kibo cone, forms one of the mountain’s three volcanic cones.

With its peak adorned by a snow-capped crown, Kilimanjaro stands as an unparalleled natural spectacle, towering above its surrounding environment and embraced by a ring of mountain forest.

Mount Kilimanjaro National Park presents an astonishingly varied array of habitats as it climbs from the pastures and bushlands of the indigenous Maasai territory. Here, the melting waters from the summit give life to a luxuriant belt of tropical forest, home to some of the healthiest herds of elephants on the entire continent. Within this realm, elephant herds roam freely with their offspring, Alongside these majestic creatures are colossal, aged tuskers .Among a supporting cast of antelopes and primates, you might even have the fortune to spot the endangered Abbott’s duiker.
