Mount Kilimanjaro is in Tanzania, Africa

More specifically, it lies in northern Tanzania, just

east of the Serengeti Plain.

Mt Kilimanjaro is an extinct volcano. To be exact it is a triple volcano with three peaks, Mawenza, Shira, and Kibo. Kibo is the youngest and highest of these reaching 19,336 ft. CJ, you remember the mountain we were on in Colorado? That was only 12,000 ft.

THIS IS WAAAAAAAAAAY HIGHER!!!

The Serengeti is home to many of the most famous animals. The zebra,

lion, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, and antelope are just a few examples.

Many more animals and

birds make Tanzania an

incredible place to visit.

The poor antelope makes a

tasty meal for many other

animals. It’s nothing personnel,

it’s just lunch.

Lake Victoria is Africa’s largest lake and the second largest fresh water

lake in the world in terms of surface area.

We know the lake as “Victoria” because it was so-named by a British

explorer in 1858. The native people still call it Lake Nyanza.

It is also the source of

the longest branch of

the Nile River.

Man's interfering with nature has caused a great ecological problem in Lake Victoria.

The water hyacinth, a South American water plant, was introduced as an ornamental

plant by the Europeans. In African lakes it thrives and grows with uncontrollable speed.

The weed clogs power plant turbines, hampers shipping and suffocates the native plants

crucial to the lakes ecological balance.

Many different people live in Tanzania. One of the

more well known groups is the Masai.


Slide8 l.jpg

The Masai are a nomadic people known

best as livestock herders and warriors.

The Masai are characteristically tall and slender, and all boys must prove themselves as

warriors before being accepted as adults. They have maintained a strong resistance to

cultural change – pretty much living the same as there ancestors.
