Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro, the world's biggest birthday present, and sprawls like a Bundt birthday cake drizzled with the continent's coldest icing. When Kilimanjaro was discovered by Europeans in 1848 the Royal Geographical Society of Britain ridiculed Kilimanjaro as impossible. The world's highest freestanding mountain (80 x 40 Km; 50 x 25 miles), out by its lonesome and practically on the equator, simply couldn't exist, at least not with a perpetual cover of snow. But the Brits finally relented to reality and during the halcyon days of the Empire in 1886 Queen Victoria legendarily gave Kilimanjaro as a royal birthday present to her mountain-fancying grandson, Kaiser Wilhelm. Thus the formerly straight line between British East Africa (Kenya) and German Tanganyika (Tanzania) was gerrymandered to kerplunk Kilimanjaro as Germany's newest mountain.
