Safari activities to do on Mt. Kilimanjaro

Safari activities on Mount Kilimanjaro include safari activities that visitors can participate in while visiting or hiking Kilimanjaro Mountain. The Kilimanjaro Mountains are found in the northern part of Tanzania, and it is a few kilometers from the Kilimanjaro International Airport along the Arusha-Moshi Highway before you reach Mioshi town. Overlooking the lower Kenyan Amboseli national park, the Kilimanjaro peak hovers in a wreath of clouds. With its variety of habitats, Amboseli contributes to the larger echo system of the Mount Kilimanjaro National Park. The 1,688 square kilometer Mt. Kilimanjaro National Park is surrounded by a montane forest belt that rises over 1,820 meters above sea level. This is one of Tanzania’s most popular national parks, coming in third place behind the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater. In 1921, the park was classified as a game reserve, and in 1973, it became a forest reserve.

The park is endowed with a wealth of natural beauty, including both flora and fauna. A variety of creatures, including bushbabies, tree hyraxes, cape buffalos, forest elephants, blue monkeys, and grey duikers, can be found there. Various tree species can be found throughout Kilimanjaro National Park, from the lowest mountain slopes to the highest bamboo plains. The diverse habitats in the park, including the meadows and bushlands used by the Maasai locals that live in the area, have an impact on activities in Kilimanjaro. Large herds of forest elephants are drawn to the park by the melted ice from the mountain’s crest, which feeds the streams that irrigate the belt of tropical rain forests there.

Each section and camp in Mount Kilimanjaro National Park offers specialized activities like bird watching, nature walks, game drives that include off-road game drives, night game drives, village or cultural safaris, adventure, and hikes to the mountain’s summit. These attractions are among the park’s many great draws. Listed below are a few things to do on Mount Kilimanjaro:

The most frequently observed birds are turacos, of which there are numerous species, including Hartlaub’s, Schalow’s, violent crested, and rose turacos.
