Kibo is a mountain peak in Tanzania. It is the taller of the two peaks of Kilimanjaro, and at 19,340 feet, is the highest point in Africa.
At the summit is a dormant volcanic crater 1.5 miles across. Kibo has not erupted in modern times, but it does emit steam and sulphur.
Climbing Kibo is considered to be comparatively easy for a peak of its size; the thin atmosphere at such a high altitude is a larger obstruction to climbing than any vertical surfaces.
