Tour Plan

The Lemosho route is one of our preferred route due beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate. The Lemosho route located from the west, beginning with a long drive from Moshi to Londorossi Gate. Sometimes the route is dusty due to many vehicles. From there, the first two days are spent trekking through the lush rainforest to Shira Plateau. We recommend a minimum of 7 days to attempt this route but 8 days is preferable for better acclimatization and summit success. The Lemosho route joins the Machame route after Shira 2 Camp and then follows the same route through the southern circuit and descending at Mweka Gate.

ON THE LAST DAY OF YOUR TREK

A gentle trek takes us down through the rainforest to Mweka Gate, where we complete park formalities and receive certificates, which you can hang up with pride! We are then met by our vehicles and return to the hotel in Moshi for a shower. After a few hours of relaxation, you will be transferred to Arusha overnight at your arranged Hotel at Gran Melia hotel in Arusha.

TRANSFER TO ARUSHA AIRPORT FOR YOUR FLIGHT TO KATAVI

You will be transferred by car to the Airport where you will board your scheduled light aircraft flight to Ikuu airstrip in the Katavi National Park

This remote park, isolated in the far west of Tanzania is a destination few people have been lucky enough to visit. Due to this, it feels magically untouched and Chada Katavi sits in the midst of this exceptionally raw, wild terrain

Strap on your walking boots for a fascinating short guided nature walk with your knowledgeable guide

Revel in an early morning game drive through this remote park with a scrumptious picnic lunch. The park is an abundance of wildlife, and massive herds of elephants and buffalo congregate on the floodplains. In the dry season massive hippo populations abound here and reveal a spectacular sight as over 200 large grey bodies flop together in liquid pools, and baby hippos thoroughly enjoy bobbing on their mom’s back, and playing hide and seek under the water

Choose to stay in a fly camp for a night out in the wilderness, under the stars

During the wet season take a drive along the river and seasonal lakes which provide plenty of sustenance for the many animals in the park. The lakes Chada and Katavi are particularly popular with crocodiles and hippos, with the area supporting the densest concentrations of these animals in all of Tanzania

Take a scheduled light aircraft flight to Mahale National Park. Created to protect dense populations of chimpanzees the lush forests of the Mahale Mountains National Park are home to these beautiful creatures

You will be welcomed by a representative and your guide from Greystoke Mahale. After a delicious lunch on your boat, start your 90 minute long boat transfer along the shores of Lake Tanganyika to the lodge. Greystoke Mahale is located in the chimp-inhabited forests of the Mahale Mountains in West Tanzania

Head off on daily treks to discover incredible primates. Guided by trackers and scouts you will be divided into groups of six and hike the narrow mountain trails to find them. Once they have been located cherish your hour with them as they play together, irritate each other, frolic, eat, and engage with each other.   Housing Tanzania’s densest population of primates, including yellow baboon, red colobus, red-tailed, vervet monkeys and playful chimpanzees in leafy trees make sure to look out for the different colours and markings as you hike through tangled foliage

Splash in the water and enjoy numerous activities including snorkelling, fishing and kayaking. Peer into the clear depths as over 250 species of colourful cychlids glide by

Head out on the dhow for an evening fishing cruise and sundowners on the lake

Have an early morning paddle into the lake or a cup of coffee watching the peaceful lake before breakfast.  After breakfast you will be transferred by car back to Ikuu airstrip for your scheduled light aircraft flight to Arusha Airport/ Dar es salaam International Airport
