9 Days Lemosho Route

from
$ 3,750

This Western Approach starts at a higher altitude and is a longer route providing a more gradual ascent with more time to acclimatize. This is the least travelled route, allowing a more peaceful and enjoyable trek without the usual crowds found on other more high traffic camps. The Lemosho Route is a camping trip for an average group size of 4 using top quality mountain tents, comfortable mattresses, and qualified guides, porters who carry the bags and equipment, and cooks who provide fresh, tasty food every day. The ratio of guide: climber is 1:2. Our local guides have been with us for many years and are all trained, qualified, experienced and great fun. We provide an experienced personal service throughout, and you can chat with us in the office about the climb. Gavin has been guiding the mountain since 1994 and makes several ascents a year, and we have been using the same team of guides and cooks since 2001.

On your Tanzania Safari Tours, you will receive a warm-hearted welcome from the generous people of Tanzania who are eager to help and assist visitors.

Although Tanzania is safe, petty thefts are common in busy areas so responsible handling of your luggage and valuables and keeping them safely in your hotel rooms will save you from unnecessary disappointments. We suggest you hinder from wearing too much jewellery or carrying too much cash while on your safari.

When travelling through Tanzania it is best to drink bottled water. This is a usual Tanzania Safari Faq’s query that we come across. As numerous brands of bottled water are served in all restaurants and lodges you won’t fall short of them. In terms of food defer from ice, raw vegetables, and salads while eating at street restaurants. Hygiene is not an issue at high-end lodges and restaurants. You should also avoid eating in empty restaurants as the. And at the coast make sure your sea-food is properly cooked.

The tasty and delicious Tanzania Food served in the safari camps/lodges are cooked by our professional cooks. You will get freshly baked bread, and produce soups and salads, apart from various lunch and dinner items when meat, fish or pasta dishes are served. The usual day begins with a cup of tea and biscuits. In your brunch, you will be served sausage, cereals, toast, fruits, eggs and bacon. Then the warm delicious buffet lunches are served with salads, quiches and cold meats. At dinner expect an appetizer followed by fish, meat and pasta dishes. The day ends with a stunning dessert, cheese or tea/coffee. As the Tanzanian crew work so hard, Tipping in Tanzania Safari is considered a customary tradition.

Most commonly in Tanzania Safari Faq’s we are asked if the camp lodges have mosquito nets. Depending on the individual locations, such as near open water, altitude, etc, you will receive various qualities of mosquito nets. These tightly sealed and zipped tight camps are made so to avoid the need for mosquito netting. While enjoying housekeeping services or dinner services, you will also receive a mosquito repellent spray service in most camps. Apart from this, for your safety, it is advised to bring trousers/slacks, DEET, sports/long-sleeved shirt and/or blouse and dress/skirt for ladies.
