Rainforest Zone - Rain forest zone is known as the second climatic zone. The zone elevates from 6,000 ft. to just over 9,000 ft. Rainforest covers most part of Kilimanjaro. This zone introduces with few wildlife such as; Blue and Colobus monkeys.

Highland Desert Zone - It is the 4th climatic zone that starts at 13,000 ft. and continue up to 16,000 ft. This is truly the rarest and strange place of mountain.
