Kilimanjaro National Park
Mount Kilimanjaro National Park provides an amazingly diverse series of habitats as it rises from the pastures and bushlands of the native Maasai people to the boundary of the 1668 sq. kilometer (641 sq. miles) national park at approximately altitude of 800 meters.
Here, melt-water streams from the summit nourish a lush belt of tropical forest where some of the healthiest elephant herds in the entire continent roam at will, matriarchs with their attendant daughters, granddaughters and great-grandchildren, accompanied by enormous, lumbering tuskers over 50 years old, their heads dragged almost to the ground by massive ivory tusks.
You may be lucky enough to spot the endangered Abbott's duiker among a supporting cast of antelopes and primates. With such a diversity of habitats, Birdlife International records 671 avian species in the area, including 13 classified at risk of extinction. It is a superlative destination for an East Africa birding trip especially during the wet season.
