Lemosho Western Breach Crater

Lemosho Western Breach Crater

The Lemosho Route is truly picturesque and unspoilt with the possibility of sighting wild game along the forest section. This route is a superior option for trekker’s seeking a quiet route away from the crowds for the first two days trekking. Thereafter, the route is precisely the same as the Machame Route.

This route takes us from the West across Shira Plateau to the rarely visited Moir Hut, onwards to our private camp at Sheffield supplemented by an ascent of Lava Tower which offers majestic 360 degree views across the valley and looking directly up to Arrow Glacier.

We ascend the Western Breach to the crater via the classic route from the southwest with a challenging rock scramble during daylight. The wide crater floor is a magnificent arctic moonscape and our camp is set in soft sand adjacent the indigo streaked Furtwangler Glacier.

Loitokitok

Loitokitok (Rongai Route)

This is the only route to approach Kibo from the north and the least travelled. Originally the trail began right against the Kenyan border, though recently the trail shifted eastwards and now starts at the Tanzanian town of Loitokitok, after which the new trail has been named (most trekkers refer to this trail as the Rongai Route). The Rongai trail starts in the remote northeast of Kilimanjaro, where rainfall is much less on the lower slopes, keeping the forest sections clear of mud for a much longer season. The trailhead borders the edge of the arid plains of Amboseli and Tsavo West, right up against the Kenyan border. As this is an isolated route less frequented by trekkers, it is likely that you will encounter wildlife, as animals tend to gather where humans don’t. Trekkers will also be rewarded by the vast number of unique plant life that is prevalent in the rainforest, mooreland and the semi to alpine desert zones.

Machame

Machame

Machame is a challenging and at times steep trek with stunning scenery as it traverses through Kilimanjaros 5 diverse climatic zones. This route provides the opportunity to “trek high and sleep low” which is considered important in minimizing the potential for altitude sickness.

The climb starts above the picturesque mountain village of Machame to the south of Kilimanjaro. After passing through the Machame forest and into the moorland zone, we scramble up and over some rocks and eventually emerge onto the Shira Plateau. We then advance counter-clockwise traversing below the southern face of Kibo, climb Lava Tower for magnificent 360 degree panoramas, ascend the Great Barranco Wall, a challenging and exhilarating rock scramble, and approach Uhuru Summit from Barafu or Kossovo Camp and the ridge that abuts the Southeast Valley. The climb from Barafu offers incredible views of Mawenzi Peak and Kilimanjaro’s remnant volcanic cone.

Mt Meru

Mt Meru Route

This wonderfully tranquil and extremely scenic mountain offers adventurers a rich and varied wilderness experience with incredible sightings of wildlife including buffalo grazing, black and white colobus monkey, baboon, warthog, elephant and giraffe.

Mt Meru is a botanist’s paradise home to hundreds of plant species ranging from large wild date palms to a variety of ferns, orchids and bearded lichens hanging from trees in the dense forests. It is also an orthinological and entomological haven with many interesting bird and insect species found on its slopes, undisturbed, much as they have been for years.

The trail to Socialist Peak follows the north rim of the crater, along a dramatic barren ridgeline offering spectacular views of the ash cone lying nearly a thousand metres below in the crater.

The crowds that can plague Kilimanjaro are non-existent here, allowing for a quiet, peaceful, though challenging trek.
