Description

Come with us on this unforgettable adventure climbing the incredible Kilimanjaro (5895m) through the Lemosho Route!

Located in the African country of Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the Seven summits and the highest peak in Africa. This majestic peak is also the highest free-standing mountain in the world.

The Lemosho Route is one of the routes to climb Kilimanjaro, and it's relatively new. It is also the preferred route for many climbers due to its beauty and its high summit success rate. It is also considered as the most scenic route in Kilimanjaro due to its panoramic views on several sides of the mountain.

As our personal favorite, we highly recommend taking this route!

We will approach Mount Kilimanjaro from the west, by driving from Moshi to Londorossi Gate where we will start the trekking. During the first two days, we will venture into the rainforest and make our way to Shira Ridge.

Climbers will encounter low traffic until joining the Machame route. From there, we will follow the same path and walk through Lava Tower, Barranco and Barafu known by the locals as "The Southern Circuit". We will descent via the Mweka route.

Keep in mind that a good physical condition is required and, although it's possible to climb Kilimanjaro via the Lemosho route in 6 days, we highly recommend taking 8 days so that we achieve proper acclimatization.

If you are interesting in climbing Kilimanjaro through the Lemosho Route, please send me a message and let's start making plans! Or you could also check out our program via the the Rongai Route.

Please get in touch with me if you are interested by coming to Tanzania, for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or any other exiting adventure you wish to experience !
Our company was established with the aim of promoting both local and global tourism. May I say that nowhere else will you feel really in Tanzania than at our organisation. Years of experience have taught us to prepare special programs that take you off the beaten tracks (eg. Rubondo National Park, Gombe National Park, Lake Eyasi, Ngorongoro Crater Highland, Lake Natron, Oldonyo Lengai mountains, Longido Mountains and Monduli Mountains).
This of course, is in addition to the already popular places of Tarangire, Lake Manyara, the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro in the North, and Selous, Mikumi, Ruaha and Udzungwa in the South. Last but not least beach holidays on the islands of Zanzibar, Mafia and Pemba are also among our programs. Some National Parks extension trips in Kenya and Gorilla tracking Safaris in Uganda and Rwanda are coordinated as well.
We have something to satisfy anyone's budget, from single seats on a vehicle safari, to exclusive safaris, incentive tours, educational and cultural safaris, ecological tours, and face-to-face safaris. You have the option to choose our basic "Canvas Safaris" or let us arrange a stay at luxury 5-star hotels.

CONGEMA has a wonderfull team with great talent, knowledge, highly experienced staff, helpfull, reassuring (which pretty good when you are going to live this kind of moment)... They won't stop to motivate you, and give you clear status of the situation. They are well trained, and adapt perfectly to the group. Climbing the Kilimanjaro was by far one of the most profound, intense, rewarding, hard, extraordinary JOURNEY of my life and CONGEMA will surely be one of the best tour you can climb with.

My husband and I and five other friends just did the Mt Kili climb in August and it was an amazing experience, more so with the team from Congema. The whole team of 3 guides and 24 porters worked together to make our 7 days an unforgettable experience. From Victor the lead guide, assistant guides Izack and Joseph, the chef Kassim and his assistant Moondy, Ronald who's in charge of our toilet, cheerful Adam the singer and always the first one to greet us just before reaching camp, to the rest, all of them carried our their responsibilities and duties to ensure that we were safe and properly taken care of. Every day as we trek to the next camp, they are there to encouraged us and enquire how we are doing. Summit day was extra challenging, not just the steep 5km to the peak but we faced an extremely strong and bitter cold wind throughout! We would not have make it to the summit if not for their encouragement, esp with Victor's advice "if you feel cold, it'll only be for six hrs till sun rise, then it won't be cold any more" and the perpetual 'pole pole'! They did not give up on us or even once asked us to turn back! I would strongly recommend Congema to anyone who intends to climb Mt Kili, they are an excellent team and very professional!

Me and my friends had a wonderfull experience doing with Congema the Kilimandjaro summit and some safari days. All of the staff guys were very profesional, friendly and nice people. Special mentions for Alain (he was always very reactive and precise when I asked a lot of information during the preparation of the trip), Paul and Josef (our guides for the summit for their advices and permanent support and help), Kassim and Benson (the cook and his assistant for their delicious food), the 12 porters (for their good mood and friendly behaviour), George and Roman (our drivers during the safari days). Congratulation to Constantin (The Boss) to have a such nice Staff !

Nous sommes parti faire l'ascension du Kilimandjaro du 30 aout au 5 septembre 2017 avec le support d'Explore-Share qui nous a déjà accompagné il y a 2 ans pour l'ascension à ski de l'Elbrouz. Cette aventure sur le plan physique, sur la découverte de nouveaux paysages montagneux totalement différents des Alpes, des montagnes Européennes auxquels nous sommes un peu habitués (je précise que nous sommes 2 amis de longues dates, Alain : guide de haute montagne et moniteur de ski, et moi Sébastien : pilote de ligne et moniteur de ski), fut fabuleuse, et exceptionnelle sur le plan humain. Nous étions accompagnés par toute une équipe de guides, cuisinier, et porteurs tout au long de ces 7 jours; et ces personnes furent le mets exquis de ce voyage, toujours souriants, encourageants, tellement gentils dans le plus noble et beau sens du terme. Je tiens à remercier tout particulièrement l'ensemble des porteurs, le guide Elly qui a mené cette belle ascension, l'agence Congema, et son responsable Constantine qui a géré l'administratif, et bien sûr Explore-Share avec Gauthier Poncelet qui nous a permis une nouvelle fois de vivre une semaine, et un voyage merveilleux gravés dans nos mémoires.
