Holidaymakers are jetting off to Africa
An increasingly popular holiday destination for group tours is the highest point in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, and those who have seen it often ask whether anything so beautiful has ever been so challenging. The World Heritage Site in Tanzania stands at 5,895m (19,340ft) at its peak. The snow-capped peak of the natural phenomenon is an unlikely challenge for thousands of intrepid holidaymakers.
Visitors on group tours are now taking out
worldwide travel insurance in their droves, to ensure they can take on the magnificent mountain that sits in the Kilimanjaro National Park, and covers an area of 75,575 hectares.
Included in the park are five main vegetation zones, including a montane forest belt, and the park also protects the world's largest free-standing volcanic mass with three main volcanic peaks - called Kibo, Mawenzi and Shira. The mountain experience also includes a variety of wildlife, especially mammals, many of which are endangered species.
