Lemosho route

The Lemosho route is one of the noiseless routes up Kilimanjaro, For those seeking a quiet route away from the crowds, the route is a great option. Unlike the Rongai the Lemosho route has the same exceptional pro-acclimatization features of the Machame route, which it joins just before reaching Lava Tower. This route can be completed in 6 up to 8 days.

Machame Route

Choosing Machame route for your Kilimanjaro hike means smooth acclimatization and amazing views. The Machame route is the most popular and successful route leading to the summit of Kilimanjaro. Hikers sleep in tents which are carried up the mountain by our mountain crew. These   is a very beautiful and scenic route, which can be completed in 6 days, 7days and 8days we recommend 7 days allowing for more time of acclimatization.

Marangu Route

Marangu route is one of the popular routes leading to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Many hikers believe that the Marangu route is the easiest route to Uhuru peak 5,895M, this is the only route which offering accommodation on the mountain in huts. 5days can be enough to reach Uhuru peak via Marangu route, though we strongly recommend hiking the route over 6 days, to maximize your chances of reaching to the summit successfully
