HIGHLIGHTS
  • Take the route less crowded to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro
  • Hike through the Shira Ridge. Traverse the entirety of the Shira Plateau from west to east
  • Higher chances of reaching the summit
Take the lesser-known route to the top of Africa's highest mountain during this seven-day, private, guided trip. Your journey to the top starts after we pick you up in Arusha on the first day of the trip and drive you to Londorossi Gate. From there, your journey continues through Big Tree Camp, Shira Camp 2, Barranco and Barafu camps to reach the top of the mountain.

The Lemosho route, which starts on the western side of Mount Kilimanjaro, is the lesser-known of all the routes to the top of the mountain. However, it is increasingly being preferred by travelers for the beautiful scenery it offers along with a high summit success rate. Most of our travelers who have used this route love it.

Unlike the popular Machame route, which simply intersects the Shira Plateau, the Lemosho route crosses the entirety of the plain from west to east during a pleasant, relatively flat hike. An added bonus is that climbers will encounter low traffic until the route converges with the Machame route and takes you through Lava Tower, Barranco and Barafu, all of which fall in the southern circuit.

We will make our descent via the Mweka route. For more details, please go through the itinerary below.

Gurudas' review for another SafariBook Evolution tour
4 - Very Good

“Positives:1. Well organised trip 2. Picked up from my hotel on request 3. Good driver & guide Mr. Solomon who took efforts to spot animals.4. Good stay arrangement in self contained tent at a Masai Mara camp.
Negatives: 1. It's solely a budget trip with all budget services. Don't expect more. 2. Food throughout the trip was just average.
Advice: Stay for at least 3 days to explore Masai Mara and if you can spend more there are better options who will take you in better vehicles like Land Rover since the road to Masai Mara is horrible for the last 75 kms.”
