8 Days TK Lemosho, A Life Time Experience
An Experience of a Life Time is the first thing that comes to my mind after I have completed the 8 days trek lead by Frank John and Julius Mollel. Through out the 8 days, I must say that the climb team have made me feel so much at ease and feel so comfortable that I did not feel too much of the inconvenience during the entire 8 days of trek in the mountains.
I have rented a sleeping bag from them and it was surprisingly clean and new, though it was a little tight but overall it was comfortable.
The food is good and the cook Elisante and the waiters are really on their toes keeping food and water clean as a top priority as non of us have had any issues with food related issues till today and we have been home for 4 days now.
"Hakuna Matata" (No Problem) is the tag line our guide Frank likes to use whenever we are having discussions, he is always positive and accommodating . But what is important is, he never over commits himself.
As for Julius who is the assistant guide, he was with me all the way to the summit, reminding me to hydrate myself and keeping the focus till I achieved the goal.
Both Frank and Julius took over our backpack from the start of the summiting climb. Their commitment to ensure that they both does their best for their climbers so we do not end up having a wasted trip is respectable.
Through out the 8days the porters and crews were all doing their very best to ensure that the tents were up before we arrive and the toilet were cleaned after used and looking after the tents when we were out for our acclimatisation climb.
Finally, I conclude that Team Kilimanjaro did not disappoint me at all for my entire climb experience with them.
