Climb Kilimanjaro
Live the Dream!  Climb Mount Kilimanjaro!





Itinerary: 11 day Lemosho

To climb Kilimanjaro on our 11 day Lemosho itinerary (trekking for 7 days), you can join one of many Open Group Challenge climbs throughout the year, departing from the UK. Group climbs bring like-minded people together to share in the Kilimanjaro experience. You can sign up on your own, as a couple or with a small group of friends or family. Alternatively, if you already have a group of 10 or more people and would like to plan a Private Trip to Kilimanjaro on the Lemosho route, please click here >

The Lemosho Route approaches Kilimanjaro from the western Lemosho glades. Following in the footsteps of the celebrity Comic Relief trekkers, the route starts in the pristine rainforest before crossing the vast Shira plateau, and merging into the Machame Route at Barranco Camp. This itinerary includes an extra acclimatisation day and a shorter day trekking prior to the summit day which ensures you more rest, and allows for more time to acclimatise – giving you the best chance of making it to the top!
