On this route we approach the mountain from the west by the lightly-used Lemosho trail. Experienced guides consider this ascent route to be both easier and more beautiful than any other trail and it retains a real sense of unspoilt wilderness, crossing the caldera of Shira volcano, before traversing beneath the southern ice fields of Kibo. Lemosho is a little-used approach route and there is time to enjoy the unspoilt wilderness, and the breathtaking scenery, on Shira Plateau before the convergence with other routes in the later stages of the trip. The final ascent to the summit is made along the Barafu route, often providing stunning views of Kibo
We have our own dedicated Kilimanjaro team, led by Samson Lauwo, the great grandson of the famous 'Mzee Lauwo' who led Hans Mayer, the first European to summit the mountain in 1889.
Having our own team means we can easily arrange a trek on any date you wish, and accommodate your trekking needs.
For our Kilimanjaro treks we can pick you up from either Kilimanjaro Airport or Arusha Airport. The treks include airport transfers, two nights bed and breakfast, all park fee's, camping equipment, 3 meals a day and the services of our expert guides, porters and cooks.
