Mount Kilimanjaro Climb and Safari, Tanzania, Africa

Eight-day trek on the Northern Circuit

Mount Kilimanjaro Climb and Safari, Tanzania, Africa

Lemosho – Route itinerary gives the maximum possible acclimatisation and flexibility to enjoy the magnificent mountain scenery that extends from the volcanic summit to the vast African plains.

The remote Lemosho Route I guide my clients on is a breathtaking option for trekkers eager to explore less-stamped trails through diverse mountain conditions. We trek through forest and moorland to the caldera of the Shira volcano and explore the captivating rock formations on the Shira Plateau before traversing beneath the southern ice fields of Kilimanjaro.

We enjoy spectacular early morning views of Kibo as we follow the main route to the summit of Uhuru Peak (5,895m) on the Crater rim. In climbing the magnificent mountain you will pass from a tropical climate to an arctic climate in a few thrilling days to proudly stand on the roof of Africa!

Many different routes can be followed on Kilimanjaro in an attempt to reach the roof of Africa’s great mountain. Most climbers reach the Crater rim with little more than a pair of trekking poles, proper clothing, and determination. And those who reach Uhuru Point, the actual summit of Kilimanjaro will have earned their climbing certificates and cherished memories to last a lifetime.

But there is so much more to Kilimanjaro than her summit. The ascent of the slopes is a virtual climatic world tour, from the tropics to the Arctic. Even before you cross the national park boundary at about 2700m, the cultivated foot slopes give way to lush montane forest, inhabited by elusive elephant, leopard, buffalo, the endangered Abbot’s duiker, and other small antelope and primates. To learn more click the button below.
