Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895 m – 19,340 ft) is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest free-standing mountain on the Earth’s land surface, rising some 4,600 meters (15,000 ft) above the surrounding plains and savannas. Kilimanjaro is a triple volcano (formed by three peaks) that last erupted more than 1000,000 years ago but still exudes volcanic gases.
