Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest free standing mountain in the world standing at 5,895m above sea level and the tallest mountain on the African continent, making it one of the 7 Summits! The mountain is home to almost every ecological system, from cultivated farmland in the foot hills, rain forests, desert and an arctic summit covered in snow and ice. But since 1912, over 80% of Kilimanjaro's snow cap has melted, meaning that within our lifetime, the summit could be completely absent of snow! 

The mountain itself is actually made up of three volcanic cones: Mawenzi, Shira and Kibo. Both Mawenzi and Shira are extinct, but Kibo remains dormant, meaning it could once again erupt in the future!
