The 7-day Lemosho route is considered the most scenic trail on Kilimanjaro, granting panoramic vistas from various sides of the mountain. As one of the newer routes, Lemosho is a superb choice for your climb. It is our preferred route due to its ideal balance of low crowds, beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate.

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 rain forest to Shira Ridge. The Lemosho route crosses the entire Shira Plateau from west to east in a pleasant, relatively flat hike. Crowds are low until the route joins the Machame route near Lava Tower. Then the route traverses underneath Kilimanjaro's Southern Ice Field on a path known as the Southern Circuit before summiting from Barafu. Descent is made via the Mweka route.

We specialize in guiding on the Lemosho route and receive excellent reviews from climbers. Most of our clients climb Kilimanjaro using this route and they consistently report that they loved it. Thus, Lemosho is highly recommended!

NB: With small Additional cost we can book for you accommodation before or/and after summiting Mount Kilimanjaro.

Deborah's review for another Dahlia Africa tour
“Firstly, Brian from Dahlia was easy to work with and was flexible to some last minute changes. We had to delay our flight due to some delayed Covid results, and he was able to accommodate our request to push the tour two days at the last minute.The support for the Kilimanjaro climb was great. Everyone from the guide to the porters was rooting for you to succeed.Our guides Fredy and Samwel, were always available and they stuck with us closely. In addition, they were very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna, which we particularly appreciated. They allowed us to take as many pictures and numerous time spotted hard to see animals and birds.Dahlia provided great camping tents and they fed us more than enough on every meal. Every campsite seem to be chosen for the best of the clients by the porters who went ahead of us on each leg of the journey.For the safari, our guide and driver, Malaki, was with us throughout the 3 days. He even fought our case when someone jump queue during our Covid test. He was knowledgeable and was accommodating to our needs and wants. He was good at spotting the animals and birds.We stayed in two different accommodations during the safari leg. The first was Ngorongoro Forest Tented Lodge, that was excellent, well above expectation. The second was a result of an unexpected problem that caused a last minute change. It was still nice but a little dated. Brian was apologetic about the situation.It was great that Dahlia included 3 different parks to visit, each with slightly different things to potentially see. We had a late return flight and Malaki made the most of the last day.”
