Kilimanjaro rises from its base plains Tanzanian municipality of Moshi, making it the tallest free-standing mountain in the world.

Kilimanjaro mountain encompasses wide variety of ecosystems, including tropical jungle, savannah, and desert to montane forests, subalpine plants, and the alpine zone above the treeline. Kilimanjaro is the lack of a bamboo zone, which occurs on all other tall mountains in East Africa with similarly high rainfall. Because there is no bamboo zone there is a limited supply of food for animals. However, several species thrive in the area.

Kili Flora and founa

Mount Kilimanjaro has five distinct ecological zones, almost each 1000m in ‘height’. From 1000m to 1800m is bushland with villages, farms, and grassland mainly known as cultivated zone. The next zone is rainforest starting from 1800m – 2800m. Tourists will see huge tree ferns, sycamore trees, junipers, as well as moss also known as “old man’s beard”. This humid zone is the perfect place for the multitude of plants, some of which are endemic like the “impatiens kilimanjari”.

The other zone is semi-alpine heath and the moorland zone is found from 3000m to 4000m. Tourists will see the strange giant groundsel, Senecio trees, Lobelias, and the colorful red hot pokers.
