Kilimanjaro is the highest snow-covered equatorial mountain in the world and the highest peak on the African continent. With its 3 cones: Kibo, Mawenzi and Shira.
Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano located in north-eastern Tanzania, rising 5,895 m, being part of an east-west belt of volcanoes. The highest point is Uhuru Peak.
Kilimanjaro has been dormant for millions of years and according to experts, there has been no eruption from human memory.This mountain presents five ecological zones:
Ngorongoro Conservation Area has been shaped by volcanic activity caused by the formation of the Gregory Rift and the Eyasi Rift, the main geological features of the Region. During a process which ran its cause over a period of four million years, seven volcanoes were created by the lava flows. Some of them Oldoinyo Lengai the Masai Mountain of God, just outside borders of Ngorongoro Conservation Area is still active. Energetic visitors can climb the steep slopes to gain a spectacular view at the top. In recent years the ash has bubbled over the lower rim leaving a white layer which can be seen from the surrounding areas. Over many millennia the ash of many eruptions has been deposited by the prevailing easterly winds to form the fertile plains of Serengeti.
Mount Meru is the topographic centerpiece of Arusha National Park. Its fertile slopes rise above the surrounding savanna and support a forest that hosts diverse wildlife, including nearly 400 species of birds, and also monkeys and leopards. Mount Meru is an active stratovolcano located 70 kilometres (43 miles) west of Mount Kilimanjaro. At a height of 4,565 metres (14,977 ft), it is visible from Mt Kilimanjaro on a clear day, and is the tenth highest mountain in Africa.
