over the savannah.
Kilimanjaro National Park is covering an area of some 75,575 ha
protects the largest free standing volcanic mass in the world and
the highest mountain in Africa, rising 4877m above surrounding plains
to 5895m at its peak. With its snow-capped peak, the Kilimanjaro

the surrounding plains overlooking the savannah.
Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the largest volcanoes in the world.
It has three main volcanic peaks, Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. With
its snow-capped peak and glaciers, it is the highest mountain in
Africa. The mountain has five main vegetation zones from the lowest
to the highest point: Lower slopes, montane forest, heath and moorland,
alpine desert and summit. The whole mountain including the montane
forest belt is very rich in species, in particular mammals, many
of them endangered species. For this combination of features but
mostly its height, its physical form and snow cap and its isolation
above the surrounding plains, Mount Kilimanjaro is considered an
outstanding example of a superlative natural phenomenon.
