highlights
  • Conquer Mt Kilimanjaro via the Northern Circuit (the Lemosho Route)
  • Visit Kilimanjaro National Park
  • Enjoy ten nights of accommodation along with meals and hot drinks
Conquer the tallest peak in Africa in this leisurely, unhurried, 11-day trek. Take the Lemosho Route, regarded as the best ascent route, since this offers the complete Kilimanjaro experience with more acclimatization time, more cultural interaction, more spectacular sceneries and even a night in Kibo Crater.

Starting from the western side of Kilimanjaro, you will cover most of the spectacular areas around the mountain during this ascent. Enjoy your stay in spacious guest tents with mattresses and pillows as well as a mess tent with lightweight tables and chairs.

Following this itinerary you will ascend the mountain via Stella Point and not the Western Breach. For that very reason, this route is also considered to be safer than the other. Our trips also include a toilet tent in the camp and knowledgeable, professional guides that go through bi-annual trainings. Our logistics team at our base will monitor your trip from start to finish. Don't miss this chance to climb the tallest mountain in Africa while enjoying the best of our services.
1 hours Eco lodge

Start your climb from Big Tree to Shira I. Leave the forest behind and enter a moorland zone dominated by giant heathers. This is perhaps the most unique of all the different ecological zones in Kilimanjaro.

The trail climbs steadily to reach the rim of the Shira Plateau. There is a tangible sense of wilderness in tis area, especially when the afternoon mists descends. Camp at the center of the large Shira Volcanic Plateau in Shira I.

Head for Moir Camp today. The camp is tucked away at the end of a large gorge, below a giant lava flow. Travel through the upper range of the moorlands zone, crossing the large Shira Plateau, and ascend gradually.

At this point, you will be on the northwestern side of the mountain. This spectacular camp is located beneath the northern ice fields of Kilimanjaro.
Meals

3.5 hours Camping
Ascend through the upper moorland zone into an alpine desert, arriving at Lava Tower Camp. This day takes us out of the heather zone and into an alpine desert. This is a shorter day that brings you close to the dramatic western face of the mountain.

Climb for about five to six hours from the Karanga River to Kosovo Camp (15,600 ft.). Traverse beautiful, rarely traveled areas to enter a high desert plateau littered with volcanic boulders.

It's the summit day today. Wake up early in the morning and prepare for the ascent, leaving at approximately 6 am. Follow a distinct ridge to approach the crater’s rim. Trek northwest along the rim to the main summit of Uhuru Peak (19,344 ft.).

See the Bismarck Towers, rock pinnacles and the hanging Rebman Glaciers from the top. After enjoying the view from the top, descend down to reach Crater Camp.

You have the options to visit the tiny Furtwangler Glacier on the crater floor, as well as climb up to the ash-pit rim to look down into the blow hole of the volcano.

Enjoy an exquisite sunrise at Crater Camp. After breakfast, we descend down from the camp all the way to Mweka Camp (10,000 ft.). Enjoy views of the towering mountain above you while descending through the landscape dominated by heathers.
