Overview
The Lemosho Route is widely considered to be the best route on Mount Kilimanjaro. Not too long ago, there were only two main routes used to climb Kilimanjaro - the Marangu route and the Machame route. But as Tanzania's tourism industry flourished, the Kilimanjaro park authority created more trails to African's highest peak. Lemosho, a relatively new route, is preferred by reputable operators due to its beauty, remoteness and success rate. In short, it maximizes the chances that a climber will reach the summit, and enjoy the experience overall. The Lemosho route can be done in as little as six days on the mountain. However, it is ideally tackled over eight days for a better altitude acclimatization schedule. The trek begins at Londorossi Gate, located in the western base of mountain, within its lush, fertile rain forest. The route heads across the Shira Plateau, before circling along the southern circuit halfway around the mountain, exposing the climber to great views from all angles

Since we start contacting with Manase, the information was really easy and we felt safe with all the process. Once in Tanzania they made us feel like family, they take care of every detail since day one to the one we made it to the Uhuru peak Thanks all the team that make it possible, everyone made an amazing job, kept us motivated and got sure that we were in good shape. An extraordinary trip, beatiful views and an impressive team. Thanks to our guide Ravson, Butterfly, Frank, Rama, the extraordinary cheff Said, and all the rest of our team. Again thanks to Manase, Joyce, and Oscar, for make this trip an epic adventure.

Thank you once again all at Top Climbers Expedition for the unforgettable days! Manase for all info, fast responding and arranging. A save feeling to be picked up en brought back at the airport. Abuu, I’ve learned a lot about the country, Kilimanjaro, vegetation and the culture. You’re a great guide and person! Raymond, it was pleasure in the parcs driving around with you and to spot a diversity of beautiful animals so near. Butterfly, every day you put a smile on my face:) Peter always happy and a good team with Abuu helping during summit! The food during the Kili trek was really good, I was impressed by it. Three times a day a warm healthy and tasty dish! Jeremiah, Yahaya, Robert, Mery and all above, you do a great job and you operate as a team! Highly recommend the Kilimanjaro trek with you and Tarangire park. Accommodations I recommend: Top Climbers Expedition tent at Kilimanjaro;) of course, Rivertrees Country Inn (near entrance Arusha park) and Tarangire Safari Lodge (for a sleep in the park!)

My wife and I, along with our high school aged twins and two friends, just returned from a fabulous trip to Tanzania with Top Climbers. We did the 8 day Lemosho route to the summit, which was perfect for everybody. The trip was amazing and life changing for us all. Our group of six climbers all reached the summit on a clear and breathtaking morning, as the sun broke over Mt. Kilimanjaro. Our guides from Top Climbers were absolutely top notch. Abuu, Simon, and Geoffrey were extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and positive. They really knew the mountain, and took excellent care of us. Our cook, personal attendant Mpemba, and all of the porters were so friendly, hard working, and attentive. The food was just great. I would recommend Top Climbers everytime, and I would request Abuu, Simon and Geoffrey as guides if possible. I am sure all the of the guides employed by Top Climbers are excellent. After the trek, we embarked on a 3 day Safari to Tangire NP, Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Manyara NP. Our guide and driver was Raymond, and once again he was just excellent. He knew exactly where to take us, and we saw all kinds of animals. He was very knowledgeable about everything, and we saw everything we wanted to see. The Safari Lodge at Marera was so beautiful and comfortable. I highly recommend Raymond as a Safari guide, you will not be dissapointed. In short, the entire two week trip was fabulous from beginning to end. Top Climbers is a first rate organization, and I cannot say enough good things about them. After we arrived back in Moshi, Manase personally took us to get our COVID tests for the trip back to the US, and the next morning we received the results perfectly, and we traveled home without any issues. A heart-felt thanks to Manase and his most excellent organization Top Climbers. We will definitely visit them again. The experience was life changing and I recommend them to all who plan on visiting Tanzania and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and/or going on a Safari.

We did the 7-day Lemosho trek and a 4-day safari. It was an absolutely amazing trip. Top Climbers outdid themselves with the best guides, chef and porters. Our guides, Abuu and Simon, were extremely knowledgeable, professional, personable and capable. We really enjoyed getting to know them throughout the trip. Our chef, Ezekiel, was the best as he create a diverse and delicious menu throughout the trip. Our porters were also amazing. Butterfly, Israel, Rama, William, Daniel, Ombeni and Peter were all extremely helpful, friendly and funny. Every time we arrived at a new camp, each porter made us feel welcome and at home. Our safari guide, Richard, was very knowledgeable and personable. He had an answer for every one of our questions and was also very fun to get to know. He knew all the right spots to find animals and was very easy going throughout the trip.
