HIGHLIGHTS
  • The highest free standing mountain in the world, Mt. Kilimanjaro
  • Lemosho is considered to be the best route on Kilimanjaro
This 7-day trek will take you to the top of the highest free-standing mountain in the world - Mt. Kilimanjaro, which rises up to 5,895 m through the Lemosho route.

The Lemosho Route is widely considered to be the best route on Mount Kilimanjaro. Not too long ago, there were only two main routes used to climb Kilimanjaro – the Marangu (Coca Cola) route and the Machame (Whiskey) route.

But as Tanzania’s tourism industry flourished, the Kilimanjaro park authority created more trails to African’s highest peak. This trail begins north of Shira, also on the western side of the mountain. But unlike the Shira Route, where for the first day you walk on a wide 4 WD road, Lemosho is a narrow wilderness trail right from the beginning, passing through pristine and remote rain forest with good chances of seeing wildlife.

“I did the 7 day Kilimanjaro Lemosho route with Seven Wonders Safaris in July this year, and with the help of my amazing guide, Respick, and the very capable crew of porters and cook I successfully reached Uhuru Peak! The contact person of Seven Wonders on Bookmundi, Evelyn, was very responsive to all the questions I had and helped me to customise the trip to my travel needs. The guide was very kind and helpful and told me a lot about the local plant and wildlife that we encountered on the way up. Every evening he provided me with a briefing for the following day, along with clothing tips to go along with the weather. During the day he also advised me on things like drinking enough water, dealing with the altitude sickness and using the trekking poles. His English was rather good, and some of the porters and the cook also knew quite a bit of English and were always happy to strike up a conversation. The equipment provided by Seven Wonders like tents, sleeping mats, trekking poles etc were all in good condition. The food provided by the cook was really great and plentiful, my breakfast and dinner on Kili were better than what I got in my hotel in Arusha (really!). Breakfast usually consisted of porridge, fruit, sausages, eggs and toast. I got a different dish for dinner every night; Always started with soup and then usually things like rice with vegetables and chicken, pasta, fish and chips etc. I was also provided with hot water during every meal for making tea, coffee etc. All in all a really great experience and I didn't encounter any issues or problems with the crew or with Seven Wonders, which allowed me to enjoy every minute of the trip and focus on getting to the top! I would definitely recommend booking here if you are looking for a budget company to get you to Uhuru Peak.”
