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.

About the guide

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.
