Let's Start Planning

Lemosho Route itinerary, emphasizing its scenic beauty and success rate

Descriptions

Embark on a transformative journey along the Lemosho Route, celebrated for its breathtaking panoramas and exceptional summit success rate. This extended itinerary provides a gradual ascent profile, meticulously designed to optimize your acclimatization for a maximized chance of conquering Uhuru Peak. With World Wide Safaris as your expert guide, prepare to be captivated by the ever-changing landscapes of Kilimanjaro on this unforgettable expedition.

Itinerary

Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you'll be warmly welcomed by our World Wide Safaris team and transferred to your comfortable accommodations in Arusha. Take some time to rest, acclimate to the altitude, and prepare for your upcoming adventure. In the evening, enjoy a delicious dinner and briefing from your expert guides, setting the stage for your Kilimanjaro trek.

 

After breakfast, we'll drive to Londorossi Gate, the starting point of your Lemosho trek. The trail ascends through lush rainforests, where you'll encounter vibrant flora and diverse wildlife. After a few hours of hiking, you'll reach Mti Mkubwa Camp ("Big Tree Camp"), your first overnight stop.

Today's hike takes you through the changing landscape of Kilimanjaro, as you ascend from the rainforest to the moorland zone. The trail opens up to breathtaking views of the Shira Plateau. You'll reach Shira Camp 1 in the afternoon, enjoying dinner and a peaceful night's rest.

This is an acclimatization day, with a gentle hike across the Shira Plateau. You'll have the opportunity to explore the unique landscape and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding peaks. The afternoon will be spent relaxing at Shira Camp 2, preparing for the next day's challenges.

Today's hike is a key acclimatization day, as you ascend to Lava Tower (15,000 ft) before descending to Barranco Camp (13,000 ft). This altitude fluctuation aids acclimatization and prepares you for the summit push. You'll be rewarded with spectacular views of the Great Barranco Wall and the unique flora that thrives in this harsh environment.

Prepare for a thrilling climb up the Barranco Wall, a steep but rewarding section of the trek. The trail then descends into the Karanga Valley, where you'll find Karanga Camp. Enjoy a well-deserved rest and take in the stunning views of the surrounding peaks.

Today's hike takes you through alpine desert terrain, as you ascend towards Barafu Camp. The landscape becomes increasingly barren, but the views of the glaciers and ice fields are simply awe-inspiring. Upon arrival at Barafu Camp, you'll have an early dinner and rest before your final push to the summit.

Summit day begins before dawn, with a challenging climb to Uhuru Peak. As you ascend, you'll witness a breathtaking sunrise over the African plains. After celebrating your incredible achievement at the summit, you'll descend to Mweka Camp, where you'll enjoy a well-deserved rest.

On your final day of trekking, you'll descend through the rainforest, retracing your steps to Mweka Gate. After saying goodbye to your porters and guides, you'll be transferred back to Arusha, where you can relax and reflect on your amazing journey.
