Kilimanjaro National Park

Your Accommodation Options in Kilimanjaro National Park

The word “Kilimanjaro” might mean Mountain of Light, Mountain of Greatness or Mountain of Caravans…whatever you want to call it, when you see it, you will know that you have arrived in East Africa.  It is the highest peak on the African continent and also the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, rising in breathtaking isolation from the surrounding coastal scrubland - elevation around 900 metres - to a massive 5,895 metres and one of the largest volcanoes ever to burst through the earths surface. Tourists who come to climb Kilimanjaro will be surprised by ever-changing fauna, which is know as “vegetational zonation” a term used to describe the fact that certain plants will only grow at certain altitudes, leading to distinct bands of trees shrubs and flowering plants that change with height and within these types of habitat live animals that have adapted to certain extent to mountain life.
