4 places you should go to

Number 1 Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain on the African continent and the highest free standing mountain in the world. Kilimanjaro has three volcanic cones, Mawenzi, Shira and Kibo. Mawenzi and Shira are gone but Kibo, the highest peak, is active erupt again. The most recent activity was about 200 years ago. The last major eruption was 360,000 years ago. Almost every kind of ecological system is found on the mountain, cultivated land, rain forest, alpine desert and an arctic summit. You can also climb the mountain. Nearly every climber who has submitted Uhuru Peak, the highest summit on Kibo’s crater rim, has recorded his or her thoughts about the accomplishment in a book stored in a wooden box at the top. The oldest person ever to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro was 87-year-old Frenchman Valtee Daniel.

Number 2 Nile river

It is the longest river in the world. It is approximately 4,160 miles long. The Nile river flows from the high mountains in the middle regions of Africa north to the Nile delta. Near the Mediterranean Sea the river splits into two branches, the Rosetta Branch and the Damietta. Both flow into the Mediterranean Sea. There are two major branches of the Nile they are the White Nile and the Blue Nile. The White Nile originates in East Africa, and the Blue Nile originates in Ethiopia. The two branches join at Khartoum.The two major sources of the river are Lake Victoria which feeds the White Nile branch, and Lake Tana which feeds the Blue Nile branch.

Number 3 Niger River


The Niger River is Western Africa's major river flowing 2,600 miles from south-eastern Guinea to Nigeria and into the Atlantic Ocean's Gulf of New Guinea. The Niger River's source is the Guinea Highlands, which is the starting point of the river's unusual route. Although its beginning point is only 150 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, it takes the long route heading away from the ocean into the Sahara Desert before turning and heading towards the Gulf of Guinea through several countries.
