TANZANIA'S BEST KEPT SECRET - KILIMANJARO

There is so much more to Kilimanjaro than her summit. The ascent of the slopes is a virtual climatic world tour, from the tropics to the Arctic. Even before you cross the national park boundary, the foot-slopes give way to lush forest, inhabited by elephants, leopards, buffalos, and other small antelope and primates. Higher still lies the moorland zone, where a cover of giant heather is studded with giant lobelias. The alpine desert supports little life other than a few mosses and lichen. Finally, the last vestigial vegetation gives way to a winter wonderland of ice and snow, and the magnificent beauty of the roof of the continent.
