Overview

The Kilimanjaro Lemosho route is the best ascend route but this offers the complete Kilimanjaro experience , more acclimatization time ,more culture, more spectacular scenery   and even a night in Kibo Caldera.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • DAY 1
  • From your Hotel we set out in Vehicles to the starting point of our Kilimanjaro climb, the Lemosho trails. Here you meet the rest of your crew and set off at a leisurely pace into afromontane forest. Lunch is taken on trail and camp reached mid afternoon.
  • DAY 2
  • From the forested slopes of Lemosho you ascend through podocarpus and Juniper forest and break out of the forest on the health zone and Shira plateau. Lunch is taken on trail and you arrive in camp mid afternoon.
  • DAY 3
  • After a relatively long hike and significant altitude gain, today is a short day and you arrive in Shira 2 camp in time for lunch. A good day for acclimatization with the option of an afternoon walk with your guides.
  • DAY 4
  • The route to Lava Tower takes you out of the heath zone in to the alpine desert zone. Here relatively little flora or fauna can survive the extreme temperature ranges and conditions that typify this zone. A half day where lunch is taken in camp. In the afternoon, dependant on weather conditions, there is an option to scramble to the top of the nearby Lava Tower.
  • DAY 5
  • After 2 half days you now have a relatively long day to Karanga camp. The selection of Karanga camp is strategic - significant time at altitude is essential for safe acclimatisation and in the late afternoon you arrive in camp. Sunsets here are particularly spectacular with views of the southern glacial valleys and ice fields towering 1000 meters (over 3000 feet) above you.
  • DAY 6
  • Today is another half day ascending to Barafu camp. Once again lunch is taken in camp allowing plenty of time to relax before the summit bid. Desolate alpine desert and at times strong winds rip over this camp and yet in the evening splendid views of Mawenzi volcano are the norm.
  • DAY 7
  • Unlike other routes with a night time ascent, your hike selection affords you a day time ascent to Kibo crater. The going is slow but with constant encouragement from your climb team the rim of Kibo is reached before descending a little way into the caldera to Crater camp. The afternoon is spent relaxing and short walks can be taken with one of your guides.
  • DAY 8
  • After a night in the crater you now have the shortest final summit bid of any route. With such a short distance to the summit from the crater (around 1 hour) means that timing arrival with the sunrise is much easier and quite spectacular. The summit of Kilimanjaro is the top of the highest freestanding mountain in the world. After your summit bid you then descend for a final night on the mountain at Mweka Camp passing back through the heath zone. Endemic Proteas, pollinated by Malachite Sunbirds are plentiful.
  • DAY 9
  • After breakfast you descend once again through montane forest and around mid day after saying farewell to your crew, you are picked up and transfer back to your hotel for a well deserved shower!
