  • A fantastic eightday route, carefully designed to maximise time in remote wildernessExtra day to aid acclimatisationTo stand on top of the largest freestanding mountain in the world Kilimanjaro1 guide to every 2 clients on summit day
The trip "Kilimanjaro Climb - Lemosho Route" starts from and ends in Arusha. It is a climbing tour that takes 10 days taking you through Arusha, Barafu Camp, Barranco Camp and 5 other destinations in Tanzania. "Kilimanjaro Climb - Lemosho Route" is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Taking the western approach we cross the caldera of Shira Volcano, traversing beneath the southern icefields of Kibo, Kilimanjaro's highest volcano. We have eight days on Africa’s highest mountain, which means plenty of time for acclimatisation and soaking up the ever changing scenery. This is one of the least trekked routes allowing us to savour the immense and wild Shira Plateau. This itinerary gives you an excellent chance of reaching the summit: approximately 96% of people trekking the Lemosho route with Exodus stand on the roof of Africa.

Fabulous Adventure
“While summit night was very challenging due to a snow blizzard and extreme cold the overall trip was very well led by our Chief guide David, the porters were wonderful, the food was amazing considering we camping for 8 days and our group of 10 bonded quickly as a team and were all very supportive and encouraging of each other.”

This fantastic adventure will remain with me for the rest of my life!
“I was in a team with 4 others who will be forever friends such a short time on the mountain six days up and two down yet we got to know each other so well encouraging each other all the way. An absolute dream team . Thank you Caroline , Hazel, Fay and Andrew. Our head guide Julian (J.T) was superb as were Hance and David.As long as I can remember I have wanted to climb this mountain and at 62 I thought I should give it a go! A month ago today I stood on the roof of Africa. What a day!”

Kilimanjaro, Lemosho route
“This was my third trip with exodus and it did not disappoint.I had a great time and met some fantastic fellow travellers.The trek was fairly easy walking with a few points that required scrambling over rocks mainly Barranco wall, one of my favourite days on the trek.”

A trip of a lifetime!
“I had the privilege of trekking up Kilimanjaro (8 day Lemosho route) with the best walking pals and crew in the entire world. I've never walked at altitude before, and I was honestly a little nervous, but I am so glad I booked the trip. The views are incredible, you learn a lot about yourself and above all you are surrounded by the most supporting, caring and knowledgeable leaders and crew who seem to permanently have smiles on their faces - ably led by JT (Justin Thomas). What a wonderful way to spend 8 days, I can't recommend it highly enough.”
