The Lemosho route is one of the newer routes on Mount Kilimanjaro. The route begins in the west and rather than simply intersecting Shira Plateau (like Machame), Lemosho crosses it from Shira Ridge to Shira Camp. Climbers encounter low traffic until the route joins the Machame route. Afterwards, Lemosho follows the same route through Lava Tower, Barranco and Barafu, known as the southern circuit.

The Shira/Lemosho route approaches Kilimanjaro from the west. Rather than simply intersecting Shira Plateau (like Machame), Lemosho crosses it from Shira Ridge to Shira 2 Camp, in a pleasant hike. Climbers encounter low traffic until the route joins the Machame route. Afterwards, Lemosho follows the same route through Lava Tower, Barranco and Barafu, known as the southern circuit. There are several options to complete the trek over 7, 8, or 9 days bas
The Rongai Route is the only route to ascend up the North side of the mountain, originating close to the
Kenyan border. It is one of the less frequently used routes, mostly attributed to the long drive required to
reach the gate on day one. This has its advantages though, as it is less crowded and therefore a quieter
way to ascend the mountain. It is also the only route to afford you such a close view of Mawenzi Peak,
Kilimanjaro’s second high
Machame ("Whiskey") Route is also known as the "Whiskey" route, the Machame route is now the most popular route on the mountain. Compared with Marangu, the days on Machame are longer and the walks are steeper. The Machame route is considered a difficult route, and is better suited for more adventurous folks and those with some hiking or backpacking experience.
The minimum number of days required for this route is six days, although seven days is r
The Kilimanjaro Rongai Route trek begins in the remote, northern parts of Kilimanjaro, near the Kenyan border. We hike through true wilderness area towards the jagged Mawenzi Peak, then cross a barren desert saddle, before climbing up Kibo’s eastern crater wall.
The Rongai route is a more gradual ascent, and is therefore preferred by those with little or no backpacking experience, but is equally enjoyable for even the most hardened trekkers.
Mount Kilimanjaro, standing at 5,895 metres, is indeed the Roof of Africa. It is the highest free-standing mountain in the world and highest peak on the African continent and yet its summit is accessible by most well-prepared trekkers with a good level of fitness. Six routes up to the summit will take a climber through four ecological zones and breathtaking scenery from the lush montane forest to the scrub covered moorlands to the rocky alpine desert and finally onto the barren summit of snow and ice.
The Lemosho route is one of our preferred routes due to its low traffic, beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate. The Lemosho route starts off from the west, beginning with a long drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate. From there, the first two days are spent trekking through the lush rainforest to Shira Plateau
8 days is preferable for better acclimatization and summit success. The Lemosho route joins the Machame route just after Shira 2 Camp
The tightly packed trees with emerald sheaves line the foreground and in the backdrop the crown of Kilimanjaro’s stone ashen mountains with snow topped peaks make their presence known. The journey between transports you to the golden dunes of the desert and up the soft beds of the ice fields before reaching the summit. The scenic views of the landscapes are astounding. The 6 days Marangu Route is favoured by many due to the obvious nature of the path
If you are not pushed for time we highly recommend you to take this route. The Machame route itself is quite undulating giving you a good variety of altitudes each day. With the 7 day itinerary you can take things a notch slower, giving you more time to relax and enjoy the scenery and of course a better chance of reaching the summit. If you don’t have previous experience of trekking at altitude then this is the itinerary for you!
This is the only Safari combines both game drive and cultural experiences of Northern Tanzania following the land of Maasai, Lake Natorn, the big migration at the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater also anthropologic visits to Sonjo and the Hadzabe and Datuga tribes .
