Although Mt Kilimanjaro tops the list as Africa's most famous and highest Mountain! Tanzania boasts many other Mountain ranges and attractive peaks, most of the country's mountains and volcanoes are located in the north and east of the country. They vary from the dramatic crater of Mount Meru and the active volcano Oldonyo Lengai to tamer options like the Usambara Mountains and the comparatively gentle slopes of the Crater Highlands.
Hiking trips and mountain climbing in Tanzania are becoming popular options for visitors not content merely observing the country from the back of the game viewing vehicle. Instead, adventurous types are taking advantage of the many trails and peaks Tanzania has to offer.
