We’re witnessing the splendor of one of the worlds greatest natural wonders as our journey takes us to the Roof of Africa – Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
Mount Kilimanjaro with its three volcanic cones, “Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and “Shira”, is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, and rises approximately 4,877 meters (16,001 ft) from its base to 5,895 meters (19,341 ft) above sea level. The mountain is part of the Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination. The mountain has been the subject of many scientific studies because of its shrinking glaciers.
Kilimanjaro International Airport (ICAO: HTKJ) is an international airport in northern Tanzania that serves the cities of Arusha and Moshi. The airport facilitates the tourism industry for visitors traveling to Mount Kilimanjaro National Park, Arusha National Park, Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Serengeti National Park, and elsewhere. The airport bills itself as the “Gateway to Africa’s Wildlife Heritage” (Wikipedia).
