Overview
The Lemosho route is considered the most scenic trail in Kilimanjaro mountain, granting panoramic vistas on various sides of the mountain. As one of the newer route, Lemosho is the best choice for your climb. It’s our preferred route due to its ideal balance of low crowds, beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate. It takes 7, 8, 9 and even 12 days to accomplish the hike.

I just had a memorable 8-day Kilimanjaro Trek (via Lemosho) and a 3-day Serengeti/Ngorongoro Safari with Twiga...I’ve done other major treks (EBC, W-trek, etc) but Kilimanjaro was by far the best—challenging yet super fun and scenic...Twiga (especially Abuu, the owner and guide) was all-out in making sure that I’m comfortable and safe, from the airport, to my hotel, along the trek—all the way to the summit and then back. Their pricing was inexpensive but the service and the meals they provided were 5-star. And short as it was, my 3-day Safari was just as memorable. I saw the big 5 and was able to enjoy the safari experience and take great pictures. The driver/guide, “Futti“ , was very knowledgeable about all the creatures in the park and he knew just where to find them. Very personable and courteous, too. And the meals were delicious and well-served—thanks to “Shavanne”, the Chef. I’m definitely recommending Twiga to all of my friends and colleagues who got envious of my superb first African adventure.

In December 2019 we flew to Tanzania to first hike Kili's little brother Mt. Meru on new years morning and a couple days later Kilimanjaro as a family with our adult sons. Twiga Safari and especially Abuu was recommended by a friend of ours who hiked with them before. Thanks Peter! We felt very welcome from the minute we got picked up at the airport. Abuu and his whole team were very competent, we felt safe at all times. We loved to share stories with our chef and even learned some suaheli words. Every morning Mido served us fresh coffee/tea right in our tent - what a treat! The food was always very good and sometimes more that we could eat. The tents the all the camping equipment was of high quality. Even had double layered mats under our sleeping bags. We started our hike at 1am on 20/01/01 and reached the peak right on time for sunrise. No problem with the altitude at all - thanks to pole-pole. :) What a great start in the new year! I'd like to thank Abuu and his team for making a dream come true for us. :) :) Stay safe, in case we will come back someday we'll meet again.

In October 2019 I made my dream come true and climbed the Kilimanjaro peak. I booked Twiga Safari and have to say that I was very satisfied. I always felt safe and had competent contacts at all times to whom I could turn to with questions. There was a team meeting every night and values ​​were measured. Every morning I was woken up in the tent with tea or coffee :) What a nice start to the day! It was freshly cooked every day so that nothing was missing. Special thanks go to the Mountain Fighter - I wouldn't have been up there without them. People - please remember to leave outdoor equipment that you no longer need / want and above all think of an appropriate tip - the work that the team does enables you to realize your dream. I can highly recommend Twiga Safari - if I want to go up again someday, it will be safe with you!

It was a real very good experience! Abu makes the journey secure, easy and 100% successful. He has two main goals for you, one is to be secure and second to reach the top. I’ve followed his guidelines and I did it without problems, even no issues with altitud. I’ll be back once more to Kilimanjaro with my sons and daughters, and no doubts that I will do under Abu’s leadership. Thanks man for the experience!
