KILIMANJARO NATIONAL PARK, Tanzania: includes the whole of Mount Kilimanjaro above the tree line & the surrounding montane forest. The African elephants which range around the mountain developed between 5-2 million years ago. The peak was first recorded as reached in 1889, although Yohani Kinyala Lauwo, who probably was part of that expedition, claimed to have climbed the mountain multiple times before the recorded ascent.
Africa elephants - Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Traditionally, two species were known, the African elephant and the Asian elephant, although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species. Elephants are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and South and Southeast Asia.
