Private 8-Day Kilimanjaro Climbing Adventure

The route is one of less used which makes it to have its originality, unspoilt and beautiful way up to the Shira Plateau while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro roof top. It can either be used to gain the Western Breach route or followed by the Kibo South Circuit to ascend by the easier Barafu Route. 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 rich in buffalo, elephant and other big game animals. We accept big group of 15 people, for duration of 8 days, and the safaris starts from 8:30 pm, Your guide will take you from our office to Kilimanjaro gate.
