  Tanzania's rich volcanic legacy has bequeathed gentle swells of hills and dramatic peaks that seem at odds with the perception of a land of flat plains. 

Kilimanjaro: Rising 19,340 feet (5,895m) out of the Masai Steppe, Kilimanjaro is wreathed in legend and history. Africa's highest mountain, the highest free-standing mountain in the world and as high a major summit as an average trekker can go, it is also one of the Seven Summits, the seven highest points on each continent in the world.

tanzania mountains include kilimanjaro, mount meru & ol donyo lengai

Mount Meru: Overshadowed by its more famous cousin, Meru is a mountain worthy of a notoriety of it's own. Standing at a little under 15,000 feet, Africa's fifth highest mountain offers attractions of its own, including game-filled lower slopes, chattering forests of tropical birds and monkeys, a spectacular crater and, throughout, views of those famous snows across the Steppe.

Ol Donyo Lengai: The holy Masai 'Mountain Of God', is also a picture-perfect volcano in a remote nook of the Rift Valley. The only active Soda Carbonatite volcano in the world, still far from dormant, standing on the crater rim of Ol Donyo Lengai, watching the sun rise over the Rift Valley, is to bear witness to the primeval fires of the first dawn of creation.
