What Makes this Park Unique

  • Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa and is affectionately known as the rooftop of Africa.
  • Kilimanjaro National Park is home to Mount Kilimanjaro which is the tallest mountain in Africa and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world.
  • Mount Kilimanjaro is the easiest climb of the Seven Summits; the “seven summits” include the tallest mountain from each of the seven continental regions.
  • Accordingly, Mount Kilimanjaro is the most frequently climbed mountain as well.


Centring on massive Kilimanjaro (Africa's highest peak and the world's tallest free-standing mountain, rising to nearly 20,000 feet), the national park protects the area above 8,850 feet. On the ascent, the mountain's foothills morph into lush forests, serving as home to elephants, leopards, and buffalo. Further up are moorlands covered in giant heather, then alpine desert land. Higher still come the ice and snow that make Kilimanjaro famous. Hikes to the top (Uhuru Peak) take six to seven days.

Getting There

Kilimanjaro National Park is situated near a town called Moshi and it can easily be accessed by plane or road. But first, you need to reach Kilimanjaro International Airport.

Things to do:

  • Animal Viewing
  • Primate Trekking
