HIGHLIGHTS
  • Trek Mount Kilimanjaro via the beautiful Lemosho Route
  • See the famed Barranco Wall and ascend to Uhuru Peak
  • Get a selfie at the summit of Africa's highest mountain
  • Reenergize and enjoy hot dinners at the tented camps
Lemosho is our personal first favorite! It is widely considered to be the most picturesque route on Kilimanjaro, and we hold the same opinion. The trek starts from the heath and moorland at 3,500 m, passes through alpine meadow, and finishes in the Arctic zone with the Peak Uhuru. High-altitude drop-off makes the climb less steep and, therefore, less physically challenging. Two very short treks on Day 1 and Day 2 involve little physical activity and you barely trek uphill, which means you need less oxygen and your body can spare resources.

Success rates on 7-day Lemosho are 94-95%.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • When is the great wildebeest migration?

    The great wildebeest migration starts anytime between late April and early June. And if you are interested in seeing the grand spectacle of wildebeest crossing the Grumeti or Mara Rivers, you should plan your trip around late July or early August. However, it is important to note that the timing of herd movements can vary.

  • Is Tanzania a family-friendly safari destination?

    Tanzania is an excellent safari destination for families. The country has one of the most diverse wildlife populations in Africa, and there are countries with action-packed game drives that your children might enjoy. Furthermore, many of the destinations are quite affordable for family safari holidays. The only caveat is that Tanzania falls under Africa's malaria belt. Thus, traveling with children under six years of age is not recommended. Many safaris have age restrictions due to safety concerns.

  • Do I need a visa and passport to travel to Tanzania?

    You must present a passport that is valid for at least six months beyond the date of visa issuance to gain entry into Tanzania. The immigration officers would also require you to present a roundtrip ticket and show proof that you have enough money to cover the duration of your stay.

  • What is the best month to visit Tanzania?

    The peak tourist season in Tanzania is from June to September, and any of these months would be suitable to enjoy all the beauty on offer. You can read our article on the best time to visit Tanzania to learn more about what each season offers.

  • What are Tanzania's best birding spots?

    With more than 1,000 avian species, Tanzania is one of the best countries in the world for bird watching. Mount Kilimanjaro, Ruaha National Park, Serengeti National Park, and Ngorongoro Conservation Area all promise an unforgettable bird-watching experience.
