  1. Lemosho is one of the “camping” routes on Kilimanjaro, i.e. overnight stays are in special four-season tents. The camp crew will be hiking ahead of you, making sure that the tents are pitched before your arrival.
    There are several types of tents used on Lemosho route:

    Living tents

    This where you will be sleeping at night. Normally, two options are available here – standard mountaineering tents (like the North Face VE-25 or Mountain Hardwear), and spacious walk-in “space-stations” for those wanting to add a bit of comfort. The latter option makes it possible to deploy camp cots inside for better sleep.
    Each tent sleeps two hikers, though it is always possible to pay for a single supplement and occupy a tent on your own.
    Oftentimes hikers ask why a single supplement is charged for such accommodation in tents. In short, this money is needed to cover the wages and meals of extra porters, who will be carrying and washing it, as well as the tent amortization costs. All Kilimanjaro climbing packages sold by the tour operators here include twin or even triple accommodation, and the number of crew is calculated accordingly, taking an extra tent means extra trip expenses.

    Mess or dining tents

    This is where the meals will be served by your Kilimanjaro kitchen crew. For the small crews (up to 12 people), Kilimanjaro trekking outfitters usually use large space-station-type tents. For the larger parties rectangular-styled mess tents are usually deployed.
    Both living and dining tents are made of high-quality, sturdy fabric to minimize the impacts of rain and wind and make the experience comfortable.
