Mt. Kilimanjaro, towering over the Masai Amboseli ecosystem from on the Tanzanian side of the border, used to be in Kenya, but was given to the German Kaiser by Queen Victoria in the l800’s when what is now independent Tanzania was German East Africa was known as Tanganyika! Kenyans feel pretty sore about this now!
