|There is more information available on this subject at Mount Kilimanjaro on the English Wikipedia.|
Located in Tanzania, near the border of Kenya, Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the Earth's most famous mountains, certainly the most famous African mountain. It is the tallest mountain in the African continent, and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, at approximately 5,895 meters (19,341 feet), although it is actually a strato-volcanic. Its name translates roughly from Swahili into "White Hill."
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. One of GWC's installations, the A2 Hydroelectric Facility located along the Nkuu River, was still operational by the 26th century.
