Overview
This is a long route that give you acclimatization time and good success rate. The Northern Circuit is the newest and longest route on Mount Kilimanjaro. It begins in the West at the Londorossi Gate and follows the same path as the Lemosho Route for the first two days. After crossing the Shira plateau the path veers north near Lava Tower, following the longer Northern Circuit instead of the more popular Southern Circuit via Barranco Valley The route circles around the quieter northern slopes to the east side of the mountain.

Despite being the only climber signed up on this trip, Oreta arranged my climb with a guide (Gabriel) and 5 crew. Excellent experience. The mountain is incredible and the crew really looked after me. Gabriel was very encouraging and knowledgable. A bucket list experience happily ticked off.

My wife and I organized a 7-day trip to climb Mount Kilimanjaro (via the Lemosho route). We did quite a lot of research, and Oreta stood out for two reasons: Firstly, they were a local Tanzanian business (from Moshi) and part of a local organization (KPAP) which enforced minimum standards of care (including remuneration) for porters. Secondly, because the (Tanzanian) company Directors live in the United States, their English was excellent - making email communications and arrangements easy and clear. Our positive first impression continued from the moment we were picked up in Arusha and taken to our hostel in Moshi, and then personally greeted by Lema (one of the owners) prior to leaving for Kilimanjaro. Now to the hike... my wife and I discussed this at length, and we honestly cannot think of any way the team (porters, guides & cook) could have done a better job. They were incredibly friendly and pleasant - always smiling and making sure we had everything we needed. The food was amazing (we were astounded by the quality and quantity - we initially thought food was going to be quite basic, but we were received daily banquets in our tent!). The two guides - Rama & Daud - were knowledgeable, patient, supportive, humble and also great to converse with (and learn a bit more about the mountain and the history of Tanzania and East Africa). There was not a moment during the trip that they did not prioritize us - they were 100% laser-focused on making sure the experience was what we wanted (while also making sure we were progressing at a pace that helped us acclimatize and increase our chances of reaching the peak). They were also very diligent in running daily tests and verbal checks to monitor how the altitude was affecting us during the trek. During the final ascent, they were encouraging and genuinely excited that we made it to the top. We have nothing but praise for the team - in every possible way. These guys work so hard - and deserve all the support (usually in the form of tips) they can get - so if you can afford, please give handsomely. Finally, after Summiting and coming down from the mountain, Lema (the owner) took us out to dinner to celebrate. He was kind enough to share some of his life stories and how his company supports the local community. The next day he dropped us off at the airport, always with a big smile on his face. Everyone we dealt with at Oretra was honest, reliable, and excellent in their job. We were VERY impressed and humbled by the experience – and would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family.

My dad, husband and I just recently returned from a 2-week trip to Tanzania, all organized through Oreta. Let me start out by simply saying how AMAZING Oreta and our trip was! Lema and Renalda (the owners of Oreta) were extremely responsive from day one and ensured all our questions were answered before we arrived. Oreta Adventures is a locally owned and operated company (meaning 100% of their revenue supports their local economy) and they are part of KPAP - an organization that supports socially responsible Kilimanjaro expeditions (e.g. fair wages for porters). These were two main reasons we chose them and I am so glad we did! For our Kilimanjaro climb, we chose the 7-day Lemosho route. We had 14 people supporting the three of us all the way: our two amazing guides Beatus and Peter, our outstanding cook ManX (I have never eaten such delicious soups in my life!), and our ever-so-strong and friendly porters Julius (also our waiter who ensured we had whatever we needed), Johnson (our camper who ensured we got the best camp sites by starting out earlier than the rest), Pius, Amadeus, Abel, Erasmus, Godfrey, Yuda, Hatibu, Hamza, and Bamo. Our crew honestly made our trip! We got to know so much about Tanzania, their culture and local customs, and they were the most supportive, friendly crew you could ever ask for! We went during the dry season but got unlucky with the weather whereby it rained or snowed 5 out of 7 days (be sure to bring rain gear and gaiters even if you are going during the dry season!). But, they never stopped smiling and encouraging us all the way! All three of us made it to the summit without any problems thanks to the amazing food and support we received. They are also very safety conscious and every night they checked our oxygen levels and heart rate and had us fill out a quick form to keep track of how we were doing each day. Despite it being much colder and wetter than any of us had anticipated we had a phenomenal time and were able to tick this great achievement off our bucket list! For our safari, we chose their 5-day trip. At this point in time my mum also joined us, and we had another fellow traveler come along who had just done the Kilimanjaro hike. For the five of us we had our two safari guides Kazi and Dickson and our chef George. Once again, the food was outstanding, and our guides were so knowledgeable and friendly. We saw so many lions and other wildlife up close. At one of our camps the hyenas and zebras even walked right past our tents while we were going to sleep! The only change I would make is that I wish we had spent two nights at each of the camps to make it a little more relaxing after our Kili hike. We are definitely hoping to come back one day to plan another trip with Oreta – and to hopefully see some of our porters have fulfilled their dream of becoming a guide themselves. Thank you Oreta!

Oreta adventures of Kilimanjaro provided me with their best guide, (Gabriel). As an “older” 60 year old Trekker my success wasn’t guaranteed. Gabriel and the crew of Oreta genuinely cared for my well being and I successfully summitted. We had 7 inches of snow dump on us at midnight when heading out on final day. Tough conditions which had other guides following Gabriel as he's so well respected. Can’t say enough about him. I’ve made some suggestions regarding food provided so that they can outstep the 750 or more guide companies and I hope they adopt some of the suggestions. I also hope that they do follow the guidelines and pay their staff the recommended salary. Finally. Oreta is a trustworthy guide company that will look after your needs well.

A friend and I booked a 4 day safari and a 7 day Lemosho trek up Kilimanjaro. We had a fantastic experience. Goodluck was our safari guide and he was very knowledgeable and was always very organized and prompt. We had a crew of 19 people to take 3 girls up Kili. We all made it to the summit with the help and encouragement of the whole team. The food was also delicious on both trips -- they were even able to cook vegan for us! We aren't expert trekkers, but we felt very safe and in good hands the whole time and I'd recommend Oreta to anyone.
