Overview

Book
Summit success on Kilimanjaro is all about acclimatisation. With 8 days on the mountain this is the itinerary to choose if you are able to afford that extra time. Starting out in the west and with a first day of trekking through dense stands of forest, rich in wildlife, this peaceful and relatively little-trekked Lemosho Route climbs to trek across the scenic moorland of the Shira Plateau and offers great views of Kibo's southern glaciers. It is one of the quietest and most varied routes on the mountain and also the longest of the regular routes. You will spend 4 nights at close to 4000 meters before moving on to complete the final 2 stages to the summit of Kilimanjaro. A pre-dawn start on the last day of our ascent enables us to reach the high point at Uhuru Peak (5895m) in time to see the summit snows illuminated by the golden light of sunrise.

As you stand on the roof of Africa and admire the views below of the clouds and African plains, you will feel an immense sense of pride. This is probably not a journey you are going to do more than once, so ensure you have the best chances of summiting and that you enjoy it. This exceptional trekking adventure holiday offers you the maximum chance to summit this fine mountain.

I thought the overall schedule was excellent. It allowed everyone to adapt to the altitude. The pace and length of walks each day was ideal. The different walks each day also allowed you to appreciate the different environments of Kili. Our guide Elias was excellent. He paced the walks to our fitness levels. He engaged with us, build good relationships. He was open and honest, regularly communicating what was happening, what to expect, providing advice on clothing, in addition to making conversation. The service provided by the crew was excellent. The food prepared and served by James was fabulous. It met our energy needs to the day and there was a good variety.

I enjoyed the whole trip, the support from crew was amazing, food - wow, how can you cook such good food in a tent so well done to James the chef. This trip was always going to be a personal challenge as you cannot train for altitude sickness. I did suffer from slight sickness but the head guide was always there to advise. I felt the trip challenging, physically and mentally but that's why we chose this trip, so no surprises really. I would recommend this trip to colleagues and definitely recommend the team who took us to the top. Trip leader (Elias) was amazing, his local knowledge, patience, encouragement, support and drive to help us succeed was a tremendous help to us in reaching the summit. Elias was constantly assessing our condition, this was done in a very professional way, watching us during walks, talking to us over lunch, and dinner was all a part of that assessment. Elias managed porters so well and they all understood their part in this trip. I could not fault the trip leader in any way, he made us laugh giving the trip a relaxed atmosphere but behind scenes always serious in this task with our welfare the utmost priority. I was totally confident in taking advice from Elias and believed he would help in every way to reach the summit which we did so I want to say a big thank you to all the porters, chef, guides in making this dream come true. The support crew - Elias (head guide), Makori (support guide), Muba (water man), James (chef) and 11 porters were all am
