Mount Kilimanjaro National Park

Kilimanjaro. The name itself is a mystery wreathed in clouds. It might mean Mountain of Light, Mountain of Greatness or Mountain of Caravans. Or it might not. The local people, the Wachagga, donít even have a name for the whole massif, only Kippo (now known as Kibo) for the familiar snowy peak that stands imperious, overseer the continent, the summit of Africa.

Size: 755 sq km.

Location: Northern Tanzania, near the town of Moshi. ]etting there: 128 km from Arusha. About one hourís drive from Kilimanjaro airport.

What to do:

 Six usual trekking routes to the summit and other more-demanding mountaineering routes. Day or overnight hikes on the Shira plateau. Nature trails on the lower reaches. Trout fishing. Visit the beautiful Chala crater lake on the mountainís south-east slopes.

When to go: Clearest and warmest conditions from December to February, but also dry (and colder) from July-September.

Accommodation: Huts and campsites on the mountain. Several hotels and campsites outside the park in the village of Marangu and town of Moshi..
