Question: What is the tallest mountain in Africa?

Show answer

Mount Kilimanjaro.

The tallest mountain in Africa is Mount Kilimanjaro. Located in Tanzania, it stands approximately 5,895 meters (or 19,341 feet) above sea level. Mount Kilimanjaro is unique because it is located near the equator yet has permanent ice fields on its peak. The mountain is a dormant volcano and has three volcanic cones: Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. Kibo is the highest one, with Uhuru Peak being its highest point and the mountain’s summit. Kilimanjaro is a popular destination for climbers and trekkers from around the world due to its relative ease of access and lack of need for specialized mountain climbing equipment.
