The iconic acacia tree in front of Mount Kilimanjaro
The plains surrounding Kilimanjaro (the "lowlands"), are located between 600 and 800 meters above sea level. The climate is very hot and dry.
The vegetation is mainly composed of savannahs made up of numerous plant species, including the famous umbrella thorn acacia, a thorny tree that can reach up to 21 m high.
