Kilimanjaro national park, Tanzania

Apart from housing the highest point in Africa, this park covers 650 square kilometres. Fauna found within the reserve include cape buffaloes, African elephants, grey dikers, tree hyrax and a number of other rodents. In the montane forests leopards, and even lions, blue monkeys, colobus monkeys and olive baboons can also be found. Civics mongoose the bush pig dick dick and have its dikers also live in the mountain forest but these are hard to see.

If you are in the region this is a well worthwhile place to visit. Indeed if you go to climb the mountain, it is a good idea to spend a few days seeing the wildlife on the lowest slopes as well. This will show that there is value in preserving these animals.
