Kilima-Nja'ro, an isolated mountain mass in East Africa, standing between Victoria Nyanza and the coast, just within the northern limit of the German East African Company's territory, in 3° 20' S. lat. and 37° 50' E. long. It consists of two peaks, or rather craters, Kibo and Kima-wenzi, connected by a broad saddle (14,000 feet) studded with lava hills. Kibo was climbed by Dr Meyer in 18S9. Its highest point is 19,680 feet above sea-level; its crater is 650 feet deep and 6500 feet in diameter. He also climbed Kimawenzi, and found it to exceed 17,250 feet. The crater rim of both peaks is covered with a thick crust of ice. In 1894, with the assent of the I.B.E.A. Company, a community of peaceful (but armed) Austrian Communists established themselves on the slopes of Kilima-Njaro. See H. H. Johnston's Kilimanjaro Expedition (1886).
