About
Lemosho route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the west. You will begin with a drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate. Once you are here, you will spend your first two days trekking through the rainforest to Shira ridge. Lemosho is considered to be the most beautiful route on Kilimanjaro. It is our favorite one, because it offers a perfect balance between low traffic, scenic views and a higher summit success (around 80%). Lemosho route is about 70km (42miles) long, from gate to gate. Unlike the highly popular Machame route which simply brushes the Shira Plateau, Lemosho route goes across the entire plateau, from West to the East in a pleasant, relatively flat hike. The route takes more days to climb, so it offers great acclimatization opportunities.

Another five star review for Bless Africa and their services. Everything was arranged once through immigration and went seamlessly allowing me to concentrate on the the activities at hand.

The main point of contact is Gody, very relaxed and patient, responding to numerous queries prior to arrival and arranged everything last minute as the booking was only made the day before travel. Summary as:

- Welcomed at airport with transportation back to the hotel with the guide for the trek.
- Equipment check on arrival so any missing items can be arranged.
- Everything on the mountain including transportation is arranged. You really only have to concern yourself with the walking (and even then you receive an encouraging hand)
- You’ll be surprised with the dishes they can produce on the mountain. Very tasty, and extremely plentiful.
- Very knowledgeable guide (MacKdonald), with your safety and customer experience at heart.

Something to think about prior to the expedition is the tips (sort out the change and currency) and any clothing / equipment you can and are willing to gift to the supporting team. Both of these go a long way to and are very much appreciated.

Covid-19, can’t go too far without mentioning the hassle surrounding Covid and travel. Again, Gody arranged the PCR testing upon request and charged the rate of test which is USD 50. I received the result roughly 24 hours after testing.

I would strongly recommend Bless Africa to any friend of family member. Hope this helps. Have a good trip!

8 day Lemosho experience
Aug. 2021 • Friends
Fantastic tour, really enjoyed the 8 days route. Easy adjustment to the altitude and amazing (like: AMAZING) views. We were lucky with the weather and with only limited crowds. All in all an excellent experience and well organized. Special mention to Gody for the flexibility (we missed our flights and came delayed. Changing the arrangements was not easy but the Bless Africa team managed it very efficiently)

Best agency for Kilimanjaro hike!
Aug. 2021
BlessAfrica Tours was the best choice we could have made for the Kilimanjaro hike! The staff is incredibly friendly and caring, always reliable from booking process to preparation before the hike, during the hike and even afterwards. They fulfilled every wish, they answered every question in a professional und loving way. We asked for a female guide and had Ekeney, a wonderful strong woman, always cheering us up with her positiv attitude. The other guide Rick is the most wonderful, experienced and caring guide you could expect. Without him I wouldn´t have made it to the top! We had a great team of strong lovely porters, mentioning Oveid, the best waiter ever, he never forgot my daily hot water bottle for the cold nights, and John the cook, prepairing incredible yummy food every single day for us! Thank you so much guys, I will surely be back one day and choose you again!

Great people! Summit done!
Jun. 2021 • Friends
All our experience from the beggining till the end was amazing. We enjoyed our tour with super guides Ricky and Denny. The boss Goddy takes care a lot about his clients so we were in the best hands. I must point out our chef who was with us, tasteful dishes he cooked also helped to reach the top!
Everyday good mood and nice talks wih our guides when 7 days going Kili.
Thank you a lot for that experience!

Lemosho in February
Feb. 2020 • Friends
We just returned from a trip with Bless Africa. We did the Kilimanjaro Lemosho route. I couldn't recommend Bless Africa highly enough.
Gody was extremely professional right from the beginning. Quick to answer all our questions with lots of good advice and practical tips.
Our guides, Danny and Ricky, were just the best. Very knowledgeable about everything from the route, distances/timing, Kilimanjaro's unique climates and how to stay safe and healthy at altitude. Plus super friendly and always up for a chat comparing cultures, teaching Swahili and learning about Tanzania.
The porters were amazing. We were always greeted with big smiles when arriving at camp. Plus a few porters would generally meet us an hour or so before camp to help carry our day bags if anyone was struggling. Everything was very organised with quality gear that was clearly well looked after. Our bags and tents stayed dry on the rainy days. Our chef, Joseph, happily catered for our various dietary requirements and allergies without stress and with plenty of variety across the 8 days.
In particular, the guides seem very happy working for Gody. He used to be a guide so knows the tough condition guides, porters and guests go through on the mountain. Making sure staff are well looked after, including covering their medical expenses if anyone is injured or unwell on the hike, and helping to create opportunities for female guides and porters (Bless Africa employed the first female guide in Kilimanjaro).
We didn't go with Bless Africa for our safari (booked in advance with another conpany) but I wish we had, because I'm sure they would have been equally excellent.
There are thousands of companies to hike Kili with. I'm sure if you chose Bless Africa you'll have the absolute trip of a lifetime and support a great company at the same time.

In Gody We Trust!
Feb. 2020
We were so happy with the professionalism, dedication and warmth of the whole Bless Africa team who took us on our eight-day Lemosho route hike of Mount Kilimanjaro in February 2020. This is a local company who were organised, experienced, and delivered excellent leadership and incredible passion for what they do. Gody helped to arrange our hike, explain everything in advance and make sure our preparations were in order. We were picked up from the airport, and met our amazing guides Danny and Ricky who checked all our gear in advance to ensure it was suitable for the climb. Danny and Ricky, chef Joseph and all the porters were absolutely legendary - so friendly, incredibly supportive and motivating and great at their jobs (also some exceptional singing and dancing talents). We felt safe and looked after the whole time, our campsites were very comfortable, the scenery and hike were spectacular, and our guides were a pleasure to be around and had excellent knowledge of the mountain/national park. It was such a beautiful experience overall and feel so lucky to have chosen Bless Africa - we have only the highest respect and praise for the team, recommend them so very highly, and will miss everybody!
