Come with us to trek the Lemosho Route, a newer route on Mount Kilimanjaro that approaches from the west and descends down Mweka in the south-east. It is a long and somewhat challenging route, but one that is preferred by most trustworthy Kilimanjaro outfitters due to its smaller crowds, scenic diversity and high victory rates.

A vehicle brings hikers to the gate, where the trail begins in the montane rainforest. Lemosho trekkers have a longer distance to enjoy the tropical rain forest ecosystem than other routes, and hikers do not exit the rainforest until the end of day two.

Though considered a difficult route, the additional days on the lower slopes of the mountain make this the best route for altitude acclimatisation. The route usually takes seven to eight days to complete.

Scenically, Lemosho is the most varied and spectacular route as it begins in the rainforest, crosses the spectacular Shira Plateau, and then combines with the Machame route to share viewpoints around the southern circuit.

“When my Husband and I decided to go in Tanzania and to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, After quite a bit of research. KILISA TOURS & SAFARIS always appeared with excellent comments and ratings from its customers. We decided on them and without a doubt we were successful
My husband and I feel like we went with appropriate expectations about the degree of comfort we were likely to encounter on the trip
We had really good guides and support! while, our cook made sure to cook the way we requested and we were always satisfied. I still find it hard to imagine the courage, the strength and patience with which the whole team got through each day with huge smiles
I suffered on the summit night gladly I had attitude sickness medication,our Guide was patient and had great empathy for Usand will always be grateful to the guys for looking after us so well,
After our climb, we went on a 3 days Camping safari drive to the Serengeti and Ngoro Ngoro crater. Once again, the level of service was just Incredible. Our guide Bakari was knowledgeable and flexible and managed to find all the big 5 for us. It was definitely the trip of a lifetime Bakari would drive long drives, then still have the energy to set up our tents...
I cannot speak more highly of this company as It was very affordable and they provided great service and would recommend booking with them if you are thinking of trekking Kilimanjaro or go on a safari.”

“The most memorable and exciting part of the holiday was of course the ascent of Kilimanjaro on summit day. It was exhilarating arriving at the peak after all the lead up to it and the views were fantastic.

The team had an excellent sense of humor, were honest and kind, and took great pride in their roles-we had a brilliant atmosphere in the camps because of this. Delicious meals were cooked up for us 3 times a day and a snack at tea time which surely helped us to the top. Tent were both laid out every night, including a separate mess tent for meals. All of good quality

We have no problem in recommend Kilisa Tours were exceptional and gave us the most unforgettable experience”

“Climbing Kilimanjaro is both a physical and mental challenge, we booked the trip to Kilimanjaro 10 months before going. Our first and all time inquiries were promptly replied to, and the fact that we were being regularly informed on various tips for our Kilimanjaro preparation through emails made everything so uncomplicated before arrived and for that gladly we came prepared.

And big thanks to Kilisa Tours & Safaris as they deserve it since we truly enjoyed every bit of the organization. The route choice to Kilimanjaro 8 Days Lemosho Route” and that suited our time and budget. And the service provided in the Mountain was Top Notch; the guides were brilliant, friendly, knowledgeable, humorous when needed.”
