This is a lesser known route which usually begins on the western side of Mount Kilimanjaro. Lemosho route is one of the newer routes on the mountain, and a superb choice for your climb. It is our preferred route due to its ideal balance of low traffic, beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate. Most of our clients use this route and love it.

The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the west, beginning with a long drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate. From there, the first two days are spent trekking through the rainforest to Shira Ridge.

Unlike the popular Machame route, which simply intersects the Shira Plateau, the Lemosho route crosses the entirety of the plain from west to east in a pleasant, relatively flat hike. An added bonus is that climbers will encounter low traffic until the route joins the Machame route. Afterwards, Lemosho follows the same route through Lava Tower, Barranco and Barafu, known as the southern circuit. Descent is made via the Mweka route.

Mt Kilimanjaro - 8 days Lemosho with Enosa Expeditions

“Myself and four friends from Ireland successfully climbed Mt Kilimanjaro with Enosa Expeditions in July/August 2019.

The experience was excellent from the outset - communication with Noel was very regular in the build-up to our trip and we were picked up from the airport. We had a lost bag on our flight in so they accommodated us by pushing the start day back a day.

Our guides Anton, Eric and Fraterino were a great help throughout our 8-day climb, advising us each evening in the tent on what the following day would entail, and helping us with any headaches or issues that arose during the climb.

The porters were fantastic too, and the food we got each day really helped keep us nourished throughout the day. These guys know what they are doing and I would certainly recommend climbing Kili with them.

All five of us successfully reached the summit on a really tough summit night, and that was in no small part down to the help we got from the Enosa crew.

Thank you very much for all your help guys from the Irish group of 5!”
7 Day Kilimanjaro Hiking - Lemosho Route

“We took the 7 day Lemosho route with Enosa, and they were outstanding in all respects! Our very friendly and knowledgeable guides Ricky and Danny made sure we were well prepared to summit by advising us on clothing, hydration, nutrition, and how to minimize the chances of altitude sickness. In addition they were well versed in the flora and fauna and pointed it out to us. The cook and porters were very attentive and hard working. We always had great food at each meal, afternoon snacks, and coffee served to our tents each morning. The porters always had our tents and campsite set up in advance of our arrival and a smile on their faces despite their hard work! This Enosa team not only insured that all of our group reached Uhuru peak but also made a unforgettable experience, I highly recommend them for your adventure!!”

“Just finished our 7-day Lemosho route hike and we all made it to Uhuru! That would not have been possible without the help of the Enosa team. From the moment I landed, I was greeted with smiling faces and assisted every step of the way till I left to go back home. The porters were absolutely wonderful and were so friendly, all smiles! We had the absolute best cook, every meal was absolutely delicious, some of the best food I’ve ever had! Our guides were Ricky and Danny, and I must say, I absolutely would not have summited if not for them. I got sick not once, but twice, and both of them worked together to get me feeling better, assisting me with my pack and checking to make sure I was alright, and were incredibly encouraging when I started to doubt my ability to make it to Uhuru peak. I thought I would feel strange having porters carrying my things and cooking for us, but the Enosa team feels like a family. Get to know your team! Some of the most fantastic people I’ve ever met. Absolutely would recommend climbing with Enosa, they’re wonderful people and I can’t thank them enough for an incredible experience I will never forget.”
