Your 8-day climb follows the Lemosho route, an unspoiled, remote, little used, route which offers stunning, 360-degree views and allows for maximal acclimatization. This route is one of the few where groups may be accompanied on the first day by an armed ranger, as the forests around the Lemosho Glades are inhabited by buffalo, elephant, and other wildlife.
