The Beautiful Mountain Reviewed Tour: Seven-Day Mount Kilimanjaro Climb: Lemosho Route
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
  • From France
“Amazing experience with Kilisa tours

We were a group of 3 people from France, who made the 7-day ascent of the Lemosho route - descent Mweka Kilimanjaro Trek.
Climbing Kilimanjaro under the Kilisa circuits was fabulous because we really had a great experience and we got the best service. Naick, who is the owner of the company, contacted us all the time and the communication was easy as he made all the logistical arrangements and the price was absolutely reasonable in addition
This trip exceeded my expectations
Everything was well planned, from arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, transfers to the hotel and back and of course the duration of the trek
The route that we chose is very picturesque each day presented different sites. And this route helped us acclimatize to the high altitude and increased our chances of success before trying to Uhuru Peak.
The food was delicious and varied every day, served with fruits and vegetables, including coffee and tea. I couldn't believe how creative the chef was at producing hot food on the mountain.
In general, we could not have asked for a better guide and a better team than those in Kilisa
The hike was great, it was a great success to stand at the top and we could not have done it without the support of this team
we were strong and fit and for that we finished the hike a day earlier. And even after the hike, Naick was kind enough to invite us home and had dinner with his family
It made for a truly remarkable experience.
We had a great trip to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and even after.
I would highly recommend this company without any hesitation.”
The tour operator responded

“We went with Kilisa tours based in Moshi, this was my second trip to Tanzania, as I was here with my 16-year-old son on October 2017 ... It was memorable and unforgettable, promised to come back and so I came with my 23-year-old daughter this year. This visit was as good as the first. As the title of the review states. I would rate it all this local tour company if it were possible.
We arrived to check in early, meet the group we were sharing the experience with and they were awesome, got geared up and then started our adventure
We did the 6-days trek via the Machame route which is a very beautiful scenery and it was worthy every minute. The landscapes are really amazing. The hiking is tough but thanks to the guides who were fantastic and reassuring and did put our minds at ease and answered questions while gave information every step of the way.

The porters were Incredible
Fresh, delicious meals everyday made the adventure even better. And shout out to our chef Juma a.k.a Mama Mayoo, lol that’s was what we were told to call him
The WHOLE CREW were friendly and experienced had so much energy and they made everything funny and exciting! [They seem genuinely glad to be of service to you] as they provided a great experience for us. They made my daughter feel like a queen and went above and beyond their role and made us feel relaxed and comfortable with the whole trek

definitely worth every penny
The best part was the experience, because this is really a lifetime experience that we will not forget. We highly recommend this event for those seeking a safe, but breath-taking, experience in Kilimanjaro mountain Climb.”
The tour operator responded
“Dear Ellis

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro - Overview

With its 5,895 meters Mt Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain and the world's highest free-standing mountain. The first recorded ascend of Mt Kilimanjaro was in 1889 by the two climbers Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller.

Mount Kilimanjaro is located within Kilimanjaro National Park giving climbers an opportunity to spot wildlife during primarily the first day of your Kilimanjaro trek.

There are primarily four popular routes to climb Mount Kilimanjaro:

  1. Marangu Route - also known as the Coca Cola route because of its availability of cokes in the tea huts
  2. Machame Route - the second most popular route on the mountain after the Marangu Route
  3. Lemosho Route - known for its beauty and relatively few people
  4. Rongai Route - the only route that starts from the Northern side of the mountain, known for giving good opportunitues to spot wildlife during the first couple of days on the climb

The Marangu Route should be the easiest of the above four routes. Despite hereof the success rate is often higher on the Machame Route, probably because people taking that route are more prepared.

Other less popular routes available for climbing Kilimanjaro are:

  1. The Northern Circuit Route
  2. The Umbwe Route

Best Months to Climb Kilimanjaro

Jan to Feb and July to October are some of the best months to climb Kilimanjaro. The worst months are April, May and November due to a high level of precipitation. That said, due to the generally friendly climate it is indeed possible to climb Kilimanjaro all year round.

Safety

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is not dangerous, however, precautions certainly have to be taken as otherwise it may become dangerous. Please always follow the below recommendations when climbing Kilimanjaro:

  1. We always recommend to climb the mountain in 7 days, as proper acclimatization is needed. Even if having chosen a 7 days climb you may still, for some reason, acquire altitude sickness. Therefore, please do familiaries yourself with how to treat and prevent altitude illness prior to commencing the climb.
  2. Assess your climbing guide and porters before taking off. They have to appear professional and friendly and also posses the required knowledge and Kilimanjaro climbing experience.
  3. There are a lot of fraud climbing companies present in Tanzania who do not have the required climbing permits and licenses. Please therefore only book with a company that have all the required authoritizations (in this regard it ought to be mentioned that Bookmundi only works with licensed companies that have all the necessary permits).

We wish you a fantastic climbing experience on Mount Kilimanjaro!

Bon Voyage!
