The Kilimanjaro Challenge, Lemosho route

On this 11-day all-inclusive trip, you’ll be trekking for 7 days, meeting new people and experiencing a different culture.

  • Private Kilimanjaro camp areas
  • Hotels and flights included
  • Training guides, kit lists and visa support
  • Acclimatisation features
  • Great and varied scenery
  • Stay on for a beach break or safari

The Lemosho Route approaches Kilimanjaro from the West, and starts in pristine forest before crossing the vast Shira plateau, and merging into the Machame Route after Shira Camp (on Day 3 of the trek). The route traverses around to the east on Kilimanjaros’ southern side – and provides a fantastic varied trek with changing views. This Kilimanjaro itinerary includes the famous Barranco Wall and an extra acclimatisation day with a shorter day trekking prior to summit day, which ensures you get more rest, more time to prepare for the summit push, and the best chance of making it to the top. It’s popular – and that’s not surprising – as it has everything!
