“Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.”

Barry Finlay

Have you ever dreamed of climbing Kilimanjaro? To climb Kili means standing on the roof of Africa (5895 m/19341 ft) and enjoying the breathtaking landscapes around, hiking through the pristine tropical forests full of wild animals, looking at the starry sky and realizing that you are among the few people who did it.

The slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the best places in the world for spending a family vacation, celebrating a reunion of old friends, team-building of workmates, testing your endurance or brainstorming new ideas for your project. Everyone finds something unique here.

Climbing Routes

You may climb the Mount by several routes, which have been established by the Tanzania National Parks Authority to avoid unauthorized Kilimanjaro hiking and preserve the pristine beauty of the wilderness for the generations to come.

We recommend Lemosho and Rongai routes for novices, Northern Circuit and Machame for the beginners, and Marangu and Umbwe for climbers with prior hiking experience. Camping on all routes except Marangu (where the night stops are in huts).

Lemosho Route

Offering captivating scenic vistas, pristine wildlife, excellent acclimatization opportunities and the lowest traffic of other climbers, Lemosho is our most recommended route to reach the roof of Africa. 6,7, and 8-day programs are available.

6-8 days climbing + 2 days in Hotel

Machame Route

Choosing Machame route for your Kilimanjaro hike means smooth acclimatization and amazing views. This option is the second in popularity among the climbers, and the number of other climbers may be high. We have 6 and 7-day tours.

What People Are Saying

"WOW!"

 

This group did it all! From the moment that we arrived in Arusha and our various adventures, everything was handled smoothly. Our Kili climb would not have been possible without the outstanding knowledge and patience of Stanford, Charles and Augrey – the porters were amazing and such hard workers. Our driver Boniface is second to none – well versed in local tradition, animals and Americans :), he made the trip so enjoyable. Thanks to the LOMO team!!

“LOMO is #1!”

Our group summited Mount Kilimanjaro with the LOMO crew two weeks ago. I miss our time together so much! We could not have made it to the top without our delightful driver (Bonney!!!), our amazing guides (Stan, Agray, Charles), our incredible porters, and of course, our wonderful chef (Albert)!!! The guides were thorough, they knew exactly what we needed at all times, they took such good care of all of us. It was was an experience of a lifetime.
