At this Kilimanjaro booking season, we help you make decisions through a comparison between Machame or Lemosho route. Machame route and Lemosho route are considered the two best routes among all 7 Kilimanjaro trails. These routes show you the beautiful scenery of Kilimanjaro, and also offer a great way to acclimatize. Now here we can help you choose between these two routes. Comparison details between the Machame route and Lemosho route are distance, cost, and the number of trekking days to the Uhuru peak. Machame route is shorter this means need a minimum of 6 days, to 7 days maximum. Also, Machame a route cost is less, booking the Kilimanjaro route through the Machame route is cheap. The disadvantage of choosing the Machame route only is to meet a good number of climbers, because it is cheap, and few days.
The benefit of choosing the Lemosho route is that it is a quiet route remotely located and hence has few climbers. People who love private, VIP luxury Kilimanjaro trekking are advised to choose the Lemosho route, another benefit of the Lemosho route is to present of most beautiful scenic views. Another benefit is a view of wildlife, and bird watching experience during your Mount Kilimanjaro climbing voyage. The disadvantage of choosing the Lemosho route is the price of the Kilimanjaro travel packages. Another one is that the Lemosho route is a long journey, which means the Kilimanjaro trip takes 7 days to 8 days.
Which Kilimanjaro route should you take? Choosing your favorite route depends on the state of physical fitness, and hiking experience. Also, the purpose of your Kilimanjaro journey decides which Kilimanjaro trail to choose. For first-time climbers, taking the Lemosho route is better because it has enough time to acclimatize. For the people with a limited budget, you can choose the Machame route 7 days package, and works well. For the climbers who need private Kilimanjaro expeditions, we recommend the Lemosho route for 8 days. Lemosho route is offers are a suitable choice for ecotourism, and for the photographic Kilimanjaro tours.

…and how not to
Kilimanjaro is an expensive mountain to climb. But there are several ways in which you can make it cheaper. We’re not talking about saving a four-figure sum – though with a bit of luck and effort and by following the guidelines listed here, you could save yourself a three-figure one:
Bring your friends
Simply put, the larger your group, the lower the per person price – so try to persuade your friends and family to come along too (first insisting, of course, that they all individually buy a copy of this book; and maybe even two each, just to be safe.)
Join a group
If you’re travelling by yourself or with just one or two friends, look to join a public trek; most of the big companies organize these and you’ll save yourself a fair bit of cash by opting to join an open, group trek rather than booking a private one.
Decide what ‘luxuries’ you don’t need
Don’t require a private toilet on Kili? Or a mess tent? Or chairs? Then ask if your company if they can leave them behind. It could save you a few dollars.
Book your trek in Tanzania
It is possible to just turn up at the airport, get a taxi to Moshi or Arusha (US$50), and begin negotiating with the companies there. Obviously you can do this only if you have the time to wander around Moshi or Arusha and haggle with the trekking companies, but we find that by dealing with them face-to-face you can save a little off the price of your trek.
Volunteer with a Tanzanian charity
Trekking companies in Moshi often offer a discount for volunteers who are based in Moshi.
Travel outside of the high season
You won’t save much on the mountain by doing this – we know of only one company that varies its prices according to season – but you may well save several hundred dollars by flying outside of the busiest months. I very recently booked a flight from Heathrow to Kilimanjaro with Kenyan Airways for just over £300 – the lowest I’ve ever paid. The flights were for March – which I suppose could be described as a shoulder season, just before the rainy/low season of April and May. That same flight in August is usually at least double that. Many hotels in Tanzania also reduce their prices in the quieter months.
Choose your airline carefully
There’s a wide variation in airfares and it pays to shop around. Some airlines, such as Ethiopian, charge less because the route they take is lengthy and inconvenient. Others, such as Turkish Airlines, charge less because they touch down at Kilimanjaro Airport at some godforsaken hour in the morning, which means you may have to pay for an extra night’s accommodation – thus reducing any money you’ve saved by flying with them. But Kenyan Airways are usually both cheap and pretty direct, and we’ve always found their service to be good too.
If you fly with an airline such as Turkish, KLM, Qatar or Ethiopian, look to see if they’ll include a free stopover at their hub cities (ie Istanbul, Amsterdam, Doha or Addis Ababa respectively). It won’t save you any money, but it will at least make the airfare feel like better value, allowing you to enjoy two holidays in one!
Again, this is easier if you are looking for a large group as your bargaining position is so much stronger (because the companies will be even more desperate for your custom). Don’t be shy but don’t be too aggressive either, as this just creates a bad feeling and any money you save may come out of the wages of the mountain crew.
Be aware of any discounts on the park fees that you are due
Under 16 years old? East African citizen? Tanzanian resident? Then you’re entitled to a significant discount on your park fees and there’s no reason why this discount shouldn’t be passed onto you in full by your trekking company. Unfortunately, many of them don’t, so make sure you know what you’re entitled to and don’t accept anything less than the full discount.
Book your safari with the same company
Many trekking companies run first-rate safaris as well and offer a ‘climbers’ discount’ if you book both with them. See p000 and table p000 for which companies we found were passing on the ‘child discount’ in full.
Look at charity climbs
Some trekking agencies, particularly in the UK, specialize in offering ‘charity climbs’. On these treks, the price is lower if you manage to collect a certain amount in sponsorship for a charity.
How do these companies manage to offer such a low price for their treks? Because some of the sponsorship money you collect goes not to the charity but to the trekking company who invoices them.
We personally think it’s better to just arrange the trek yourself and then organize your charity fundraising separately. The whole process is more transparent this way and you can then climb with whatever trekking company you want. But while we aren’t at all convinced by these charity climb companies, we suppose it is another way of lowering the price you pay.
Where not to save money
There are, of course, other ways in which you can make it cheaper but which we don’t recommend. The following, we think, are not sensible ways of lowering your costs – because by reducing the amount you pay, you may also be reducing your chances of reaching the summit and/or your enjoyment of climbing Africa’s highest mountain:
Don’t carry your own luggage
There are companies that allow trekkers the opportunity of doing this and the trek is slightly cheaper as a result. The saving is small; essentially it will be equivalent to the wages that would be paid to that porter. This usually works out at around US$10 per day even if he is paid the minimum set by the park authorities (a minimum that many companies ignore). Furthermore, in our experience those that carry their own luggage on the mountain tend to succumb to altitude sickness more than those who don’t.
Don’t take fewer days than you can afford
Sure, if your budget allows you to climb for only six days, then take a six-day climb. But don’t opt for a six-day climb if you can actually afford seven. And unless you absolutely have to, don’t opt for a five-day trek at all. This just doesn’t give you enough time to allow your body to get used to the rarified air.
Don’t base your choice of company purely on the prices they charge
Companies that charge more for their treks do so for a reason. Usually it’s because their equipment is better, and their crew more knowledgeable and helpful. In addition. their food tastier may be healthier, their portions bigger, and their all-round service superior. Sure, there are some that do over-charge, just as there are some who are great value. In the book we try to sift through to find which companies fall into which category. So read the specifications of every company carefully to find out what they offer and why they charge what they do.
