The Kilimanjaro climb-lemosho route 7days itinerary is an is the best for acclimatization.The remote is less used and a beautiful way up to the Shira Plateau. The route is one of the few where groups may be accompanied on the first day by an armed ranger, as the forests around the Lemosho Glades are inhabited by buffalo, elephants and other wildlife.

The minimum duration for the Lemosho route is 7 days, however we strongly recommend hiking the route in 7days. The additional 7th day will give your body more time to acclimatize, reducing the effects of altitude sickness and give you more time to rest before attempting the summit.

We only had 2 days for the safari and a very limited budget. Thanks to David and his team, we got a lot of positive emotions, saw a lot of animals in Tarangire and Arusha National Parks (including 4 of the big 5) and just had a great time.
Many thanks to Sia who turned out to be a very professional good guide, good driver and just a good guy.
I recommend Kili Slope to everyone.
