KILIMANJARO IS ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC TREK ROUTES ON PLANET EARTH AND THE HIGHEST PEAK IN AFRICA. IT IS A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE TO TREK.

August is one of the best months to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro because of the dry conditions and clear skies with no rainfall.

This itinerary is for 8 days on the Lemosho route. This route offers a maximum number of days on the mountain to support your acclimatization. Also the Lemosho route is very scenic with a view of beautiful landscapes. The 8 days Lemosho route has higher summit successful rates, more than 90%, compared to other routes.

We will also make acclimatization naturally, that means you will hike slowly while you drink a lot of fluids, climb higher and sleep lower. Wild Voyager provides premium meals with the best quality, this will help your body to be more comfortable in the mountain and avoid altitude sickness.

This Kilimanjaro Lemosho route 8 day itinerary is a very special itinerary designed for those wishing to make the ascent to the summit in the daylight hours as well as with the sunrise. It takes us through magnificent scenery with views of the Great Rift Valley, Mt Meru and Longido. Some wildlife can also be seen. The route is more scenic than others.
