Many people climb Kilimanjaro on the Lemosho route, and their feedback on this route is excellent.

I was born and raised in the Arusha region - of Tanzania. Working with groups and travelers from different settings of life has been quite an adventure that plays a significant role in my life and generally in the tourism industry now. I’m very inspired by how far I have come.
The little chat with my clients before or after their adventures really gives me confidence in where we are going as a locally owned and managed tour operator.
