We believe in experience, learning and safety. The lemosho route has it all. In terms of daily distances, time hiking and the best acclimatization the Lemosho route give you a real sense of adventure. Although they are building a new road along the west side of Kilimanjaro you still have to cross rugged terrain on a 3 hour off road challenge to reach the Londrossi gate.

The Lemosho route has less people until it meets up to the Machame route on day 4. This Lemosho route gives you the best hiking days. Short day, then a longer day.

After watching thousands of people safely reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro I can honestly say people get the best and safest experience with a minimum of 8 days on the Lemosho route. We know that more acclimatization means before safety, we know enjoyment on the mountain and enjoying the journey is just as important, if not more so than standing on the summit. We know that breaking up the days and have easier and longer days helps you recover better, helps are staff carrying all the loads have an easier time going up and down the mountain and they get paid more for being on the mountain longer.
