Climb Africa’s highest mountain via the beautiful wild Lemosho Route supported by some of the most experienced guides on the mountain. Lemosho offers a slice of mountain wilderness that is rare on Kilimanjaro.

There are several routes up Kilimanjaro and the Lemosho route is a fantastic choice, especially if you value a quiet route away from the crowds. The initial section through mountain forest still offers a very real chance of encountering wildlife (sightings of small antelope are virtually unique to the Lemosho and Rongai routes). The Lemosho route offers stunning views and quiet trails and can be the best option during the peak season.the peak season.

The traditional Lemosho route joins with the busy Machame on day 3, but this variant uses a unique Team Kilimanjaro route developed in 2008 that preserves the sense of wilderness right up to the night before summit when you join the Marangu route at School Hut for the summit bid via Gilman’s Point. The trek starts at Lemosho Start Point and routes via the Shira Plateau and around the Northern Slopes of Kilimanjaro offering classic views of the Kenyan plains to the NW, North and NE. Lemosho is not possible during the rainy months (April, May, November) when the conditions of roads make vehicle passage to the start point unsafe

Classic

“Classic” climb is the right balance between the appropriate price for the majority of travelers and high-level service, comfortable hotel accommodation and qualified mountain support crew of guides and porters, who carry all your luggage, put tents, cook meals and settle all the issues that occur during the hike. Diverse nourishment consists of the first course, the second course with several kinds of meat and fish, a great variety of drinks and starters, together with fresh vegetables and fruits. The hike will become a pleasant journey to the highest point of Africa – the summit of Kilimanjaro.
