Overview
It is more secluded and arguably more attractive as a newer route, but it is also significantly longer and more expensive. It was developed as an alternative to the Shira route and begins on the western side of the mountain at the Londorossi Gate, which is a long drive from town.
On day 3, it crosses the Shira Plateau to connect with the Machame Route at Lava Tower and descend to Barranco Valley via the Southern Circuit after passing through spectacular woods and moorlands. You might see buffalo, elephants, and other animals if you're lucky. This route has a better summit success rate since it may be done over a longer period of time for acclimatization.

My friend and I planned to do the 7 day Lemosho route with TCE. Due to last minute changes with some of our group members.. TCE had to make rush decisions in adding us to another group with a sister company. Both the companies were extremely professional and well organized. They made sure we had a great time on the mountain and could summit without any issues. We loved every single day of our trip thanks to your effort and dedication. We would highly recommend TCE to future hikers. In addition to the great food and company, we had an immersive experience with the local guides - getting to learn their culture, music and language

We did the 8 day lemosho route climbing the Kilimanjaro. The experience was nothing short of amazing. The team helping us up the mountain were reliably and well suited for the climb. The hospitality was great and when one of our group suffered from a pneumonia, they arranged evacuation, transport to a hospital and a hotel night without any additional cost. Furthermore, the guides (Laraha, Viviano and Habibu) were professional and were able to tell us a lot during our trip. All in all an unforgettable experience

The Top Climbers safari was wonderful. We had a very positive experience with everyone at the company. Our guide, Raymond, was fanstatic. He is excellent at tracking and we saw many, many animals at close range. He is also knowledgeable about plants and the terrain. But even more, he is a kind, thoughtful person with a great sense of humor. He was a pleasure to travel with. We were met at and returned to the airport by Oscar. We knew we were in good hands when we met him. At the end of the safari he was waiting for us at the hotel to ask about our experience. Manase, the owner, patiently and promptly anwered many questions before and after we booked. The safari was as promised. The accommodations were outstanding, the food was delicious. We appreciated the sustainability of the hot lunch that was prepared by the overnight accommodation: after we ate the plates and serving containers we retuned to a wicker basket to be cleaned and refilled at the next location. I highly recommed Top Climbers.

To undertake an adventure of a lifetime like this, you need to ensure you're in inspiring, safe , and experienced hands. That's exactly what we got with top climbers. The communication from Manase was second to none regarding initial preparation, gear and expectations. The team was so well balanced with the right number of guides/porters/ cooks etc for our party of 4. The safety checks, advice, encouragement, local knoweldge was unrivalled. Food was amazing to keep us going and catered to all dietary requirements. We opted for our own private toilet facilities- really recommend you do this for ease and hygiene purposes & they were diligently kept clean - faultless. Equipment, tents, initial travel and just the overall care and attention provided to us by the team was unparalleled - we were looked after as family! It can be an anxious journey but if you're after reassurance, would really recommend the Top Climbers Team, God Bless Them
