Kilimanjaro - Lemosho Route

12 out of 12 made it - in various states of disrepair - to the roof of Africa and down again. A fine effort, aided and abetted by excellent guides and following the often quoted 5 golden rules for Kilimanjaro. It's a shame i can only recall 4 of them but something like eat well, drink lots of fluid, go slowly, and have a positive mental attitude. I'd emphasise the latter which requires a lot of staying calm when you feel sick, trusting yourself, and finding the wherewithal to plod slowly all night up a freezing mountain when your subconscious self is telling you to pack it in and do something more sensible but less inspirational

Kilimanjaro.... an experience to remember!

If you want a relaxing holiday step away from this review now! Regardless of what anyone or reviews tell you being fit for Kilimanjaro is essential. Altitude sickness is a condition, having strength in your legs is pre trip requirement due to the terrain you will have to cover. However, without a doubt this trip was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I can't even begin to share the roller coaster emotions of myself and the group. Laughter, tears, singing and support both from the travellers and the guides and porters, it really is something you will never forget. It's a challenge both physically and mentally but so so worth stepping out of those boundaries and finding out what you are really made of. It is an experience, one to conquer but also one to savour for many years to come.

Just do it!

If you have been thinking about climbing Kilimanjaro for a while but have hesitated go ahead and do it. The Lemosho route gives you plenty of time to acclimatise and why go all the way to Tanzania and rush it? The guides make sure no one goes too fast and it was only on the summit climb that we gradually split into small groups according to ability. So don't worry you will not get left behind and you wont get made to feel you are slowing the group down. EVERYONE goes slowly. It's compulsory. And don't worry if you want to go solo. I think most people climbing Kilimanjaro are solo travellers anyway.

KILIMANJARO CLIMB - LEMOSHO ROUTE

Unlike anything I've done before and doubt I'll do the same again. Wonderful and challenging trip, totally beautiful and guided by a fantastic, funny and experienced group from the African Walking Company.

KILIMANJARO CLIMB - LEMOSHO ROUTE

A fantastic trip that had a variety of scenery across the 8 days. I felt I was given as good a chance as possible of making the summit - and everyone on our group did make it.

KILIMANJARO CLIMB - LEMOSHO ROUTE

This was a great trip, extremely well organised and with great guides. The scenery, changing as it did with altitude, was stupendous, especially walking high up above the clouds.

KILIMANJARO CLIMB - LEMOSHO ROUTE

I was anxious before the start of a trip which I had challenged myself to do whilst my partner recuperated from a seriously life threatening health issue. Would I get on with others in the group? Was I physically fit enough? I soon realised that the others, who ranged in age from 22 up to myself at 61, all had the same fears and the disparate group of individuals soon became a mutually supporting team which encouraged each other every step of the way. It was a life affirming experience for which summiting was the emotional highlight but every moment was a privilege and joy which would have been worthwhile even if I had not got to the top.
