10 Reasons to Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro

The highest freestanding mountain in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro, rises from the desert floor to a height of 19,340 ft.  This extinct volcano has three cones (Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira) and the summit has a commanding view of the surrounding plains, complete with five eco-systems and extensive game reserves.
