Description: Africa’s highest point stands at 5,895 m atop Kilimanjaro. This volcanic massif towers above the contiguous plains in marvelous isolation; its snowy peak looms over the savannah. A mountain forest encircles the mountain. Various mammals reside in the park, several of them endangered species. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  Kilimanjaro National Park is a national park, located near Moshi, Tanzania. It is centered on Mount Kilimanjaro, and covers an area of 753 km² from 2°45'–3°25'S, 37°00'–37°43'E. In the 1910s, Mount Kilimanjaro and its forests were declared a game reserve by the German colonial government. In 1921 it was made a forest reserve. In 1973, the mountain above the tree line (~2700m) was reclassified as a National Park and was opened to public access in 1977. The park was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987. --Wikipedia. Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License.
