Mount Kilimanjaro National Park.

Mount Kilimanjaro.

Introduction

Mount Kilimanjaro is within Tanzania Northern Part.

Kilimanjaro is located just (Location: 3.07 S, 37.35 E) near the equator, in the Tropical Country yet its peak covered by snow throughout the year. Rising abruptly from the open plains, capped by snow and frequently fringed by clouds, it is one of Africa’s classic images.

Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest Mountain in Africa 5895m/19340 ft. is the only Mountain in the World with the perfect symmetrical crater. Is the highest free standing Mountain in the World?

Is a metaphor for the compelling beauty of East Africa? Kilimanjaro is one of the highest walkable summits on the planet, a beacon for visitors from around the world.

The national park and forest reserve occupy the whole of Mount Kilimanjaro and its surrounding Montana forests. Mt Kilimanjaro and the surrounding forests were declared a game reserve by the German colonial government in the early part of this century, and this area was further gazette as a forest reserve in 1921.

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 (at the 2,700m contour), the cultivated foot slopes give way to lush montane forest, inhabited by elusive elephant, leopard, buffalo, the endangered Abbot’s duiker, and other small antelope and primates. Higher still lies the moorland zone, where a cover of giant heather is studded with otherworldly giant lobelias.

VEGETATION the major vegetation types represented on Mount Kilimanjaro could loosely be termed montane forest, moorland, upland moor, alpine bogs, and alpine desert (Greenway, 1965), although not all of the montane forest zone is currently within the national park. There is no bamboo zone, nor a Hagenia-Hypericum zone. Above about 4,600m, very few plants are able to survive the severe conditions, although specimens ofHelichrysum newii have been recorded as high as 5,760m (close to a fumarole), and mosses and lichens are found right up to the summit.

The mountain is important, not only to the tourists who visit and the farmers who live on the slopes, but to many downstream users. Runoff from Kilimanjaro supplies the Pangani River, which flows over 200 miles to empty into the Indian Ocean. Water from the Pangani is an important and widely competed-for commodity in this rain-poor region. Usage of the river water by smallholders, large scale farmers, high-usage rice farmers, and domestic users along its length decreases river flow.

Mount Kilimanjaro Recovery Club (MOKIREC) contributes to reforestation efforts on Mt. Kilimanjaro, because of its vital importance to the ecology of the surrounding region. Natural trees are being planted by people around their farms and homes for ecosystem protection and livelihood improvement. Food, medicine and lumber producing species are protecting families from spending money on these domestic products. Mount Kilimanjaro Recovery Club (MOKIREC)is a voluntary organization for Conservation of natural resources around mount Kilimanjaro.

Volunteers and donors are welcome to contribute here.

Through Mount Kilimanjaro Recovery Club (MOKIREC) funded tree nurseries, thousands of Kilimanjaro volunteers, both youth and adult, are learning horticultural skills and taking direct action by replanting and widely distributing species that will help solve multiple problems in the life-sustaining watershed. They are organizing field days to plant large numbers of trees along stream banks that have been denuded to protect them from excessive runoff, and in burned out and overcut areas to stabilize soil and prevent further erosion.

Help conserve the ecology, ecotourism, environment and nature. A small donation of about 2 US $ or more can make a difference.
