We love to be at the Roof of Africa as here is where you can enjoy and be proud of climbing the highest mountain in Africa.
Mount Kilimanjaro's name is a mystery wreathed in the clouds. It might mean Mountain of Light, Mountain of Greatness or Mountain of Caravans. Or it might not. The local people, the Wachagga, don't even have a name for the whole massif, only Kipoo (now known as Kibo) for the familiar snowy peak that stands imperious, overseer of the continent, the summit of Africa. It lies with Mount Kilimanjaro National Park near Moshi Town in northern Tanzania.
Kilimanjaro, by any name, is a metaphor for the compelling beauty of Tanzania mountains. When you see it, you understand why. Facts about Mount Kilimanjaro include that it is this 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 an imperious 5,895 metres (19,336 feet).
