Q: Why climb via the Western-Breach Route?
A: Only 5% of people who climb Kilimanjaro climb via the Western-Breach. This route is also called the Scott Fischer Route. The Lemosho Western-Breach Route provides climbers with more seclusion (less crowds), spectacular scenery, as well as avoids the long 6-8 hour midnight ascent to the summit (like Marangu and Machame routes). We camp next to the crater and glaciers with a short 2 hour trek to the summit. We are proud to have a 95% success rate with this route.

A: Yes we can surely add a safari extension to your climb. All our safaris are custom and private. They include a private jeep, guide/driver, national park fees, camping fees, government fees and taxes, as well as accommodations in Luxury Tented Camps.
