7 day Lemosho Route: a rewarding experience.

Views: 166 Visited: Jul 2018 Reviewed: Jul 19, 2018

My husband and I did the 7 day Lemosho route with Jiwe Adventures. On day 2 I was ready to give up but the team proved to be an amazing support system and we wouldn't have reached the summit without them! The route and whole logistics were really well thought out and everything possible was done to make this experience as comfortable as can be expected. If you go, ask for Peter and Godluck as guides, both were amazing. Peter was telling me stories about Tanzania to distract me from thinking about the mountain. Godluck was very thoughtful in taking pictures for us when I was too tired to think about it or too cold to take off my gloves.

Both were very professional yet warm people who were amazing at providing encouragement and boosting our spirit. Also we highly recommend Liberati as a cook, he kept checking in on us and asking us what we wanted to eat, very considerate when we had less appetite and just super friendly and needless to say and excellent cook! The whole team was wonderful, they go above and beyond to help and encourage, they sing they dance, when you get to the bottom you get a beer that is probably the most rewarding drink you will have had in a while!

We did the hike without taking any Diamox when everyone around us was taking it and that was only possible because the guides were super attentive to our physical state and kept giving us advice on how to manage everything and anything we experienced- I am also very glad I did have to do unnecessary wee stops on summit night with freezing temperatures and was not keen on finding out whether the medication had any side effects! We felt very confident that we were in good hands, their care was flawless and very reassuring.

I still cannot believe we made it and I know we owe that success to that wonderful team. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
