Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the Earth's most famous mountains, located in Tanzania near the border of Kenya. It is the tallest mountain in the African continent and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world.

While the Librarian was on Earth indexing humanity, she described Kilimanjaro as "a beautiful thing - a snowcapped sentinel." She stated she was going to spend the last moments of her life there.[1]


In the 24th century, melted water from Kilimanjaro was collected by the Global Water Campaign water purification complex, processed and sent along the GWC Trans-African Pipelines along the Tsavo Highway for use across the rest of the African continent. By the 26th century, this facility has fallen into disrepair and is overgrown in jungle after more than a century of neglect.[2] One of GWC's installations, the A2 Hydroelectric Facility located along the Weru Weru River, was still operational by the 26th century.
