Why should you visit? At 5,895 m, Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, awarding it the appropriate title as the ‘Roof of Africa’. “As wide as all the world, great, high and unbelievably white,” was the famous writer, Ernest Hemingway’s, description. Now a World Heritage site, its outstanding features are its three major volcanic centres, Shira in the west, Mawenzi in the East and the snow-capped Kibo in the centre. In addition to the stunning beauty of the mountain, a variety of animals can be found in the park, including  the Kilimanjaro tree hyrax, bushbuck, grey and red duiker, cape buffaloes, leopards, colobuses, blue monkeys and elephants.
