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 and then follows the same route through the southern circuit and descending at Mweka Gate.
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 highest peak, as you sleep under it on night three.
This route meets up with the Marangu route upon descent, allowing climbers a different view of the
mountain on the way down. Although Rongai climbers do not experience the rainforest on day one, they
are given the chance on the final day of the trek before reaching the gate where the climb concludes.
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.
Lemosho route allowing you to camp and fully appreciate the splendor of
your surroundings and the clear night skies. The terrain changes as you ascend the mountain, passing
through thick forest, moorland and scree en route to the highest point of the crater, Uhuru Peak. This is a
challenging trek at altitude, climbing one of the most impressive and well-known mountains in the world.
The minimum number of days required for this route is seven days, although eight days is ideal.
Lemosho is considered the most beautiful route on Kilimanjaro and grants panoramic vistas on various sides of the mountain. It is our favorite route because it offers a great balance of low traffic, scenic views and a high summit success rate. Thus, Lemosho comes highly recommended.
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 and its gradual incline increase. Are you willing to sacrifice the comfort of sleeping in a bed? Don’t fret, the Marangu Route is the only route that offers accommodation. The sleeping huts resemble dormitories and each bunk bed is equipped with a sponge mattress and pillow. Bathrooms and running water are available at the lower huts. Kibo uses a basic latrine system and buckets of water are available. The 6 days Marangu Route is highly recommended by experts due to the extra acclimatization day. All hikers eat their breakfast and evening meals in a dining hut and this creates an enjoyable, social atmosphere.
This Tanzanian safari itinerary visits the four spectacular and understandably popular destinations of the Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongo and Tarangire National Parks, all of which are teeming with wildlife.

There is a modest additional cost, which goes directly to the villagers. Many tourists pass through these areas, leaving only a cloud of dust, but with the unique Africa VIP Travel connections we will experience some of the local culture. Our goal is to enrich your knowledge of this part of Africa and ensure more of the benefits of tourism reach the locals directly.
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.
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!
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 recommended.
The Machame route is scenically beautiful and varied. However, due to the heavy crowds, it loses some of its spendor.
