"Mountain Mammoth"
Forming a magnificent silhouette against Africa's horizon, the colossal Mount Kilimanjaro lies at the heart of the eponymous national park. It is a sight to behold any time of the year, with its summit height of 19,341 feet (5,895 meters). The mountain has a dormant volcanic feature, with three volcanic cones - Mawenzi, Shira and Kibo. The base of the mountain on the lower rainforest is a habitat to a number of species including buffaloes, leopards, monkeys and elands. Each year, this towering beauty is known to attract more than 25,000 trekkers, of which some manage to scale it, while some others succumb to the challenging climb.

At an imposing altitude of 14967.19 feet (4562 meters), the Mount Meru gains the status of the second highest mountain in Tanzania, and the fourth highest in all of Africa. It is located to the west of the mighty and more glorified Mount Kilimanjaro and lies within the confines of the Arusha National Park. A gigantic mountain in its own right, Mount Meru is more popularly ascended by mountaineers as a acclimatization exercise for the more strenuous climb of the Mount Kilimanjaro.
