My spouse and I, together with a couple of buddies did the Lemosho route in 7 days. We had been all very glad we went with Gladys as our information firm.
Gladys is a member of KPAP which was one in all principal necessities for a information service. The opposite principal concern was value, they had been one of many cheaper firms I may discover that additionally offered tents and sleeping pads as a part of the value.
From the start I felt like we had been coping with professionals who took delight of their work. Ron, who’s a part of the workplace group in Moshi all the time responded to my many emails rapidly. In addition to arranging a shuttle to and from the airport, Ron additionally helped us ebook flights to Zanzibar after we had hassle with the airline web site.
As soon as we obtained to Moshi we had been all the time instructed what the plan was and what to anticipate. They had been all very versatile and useful with getting us settled in and going by way of our gear with us. All of us rented sleeping baggage and had been proud of the gear. It was all very clear.
Our guides had been Prosper, Desi, and Siyedi…hope I spelled that proper. All of us felt we had been in good arms with these guys. They all the time stored us conscious of the plan for the day. What to anticipate from them, and what they anticipated from us. Which was primarily ingesting tons of water and consuming a number of meals. I would say we might all agree the guides, prepare dinner and the group of porters are the celebrities of the Gladys information firm. To not take something away from the workplace group. The crew actually blew us away with their kindness and professionalism. All of us felt actually pampered throughout this journey. Each morning Samuel would wake us up with a scorching cup of espresso on the tent door, then quickly after got here the nice and cozy tub of water for laundry for every of us. The meals additionally exceeded or expectations. Scorching soup with each meal, and recent fruit every day. The crew even despatched up our eating tent forward of us a few the times and we had scorching lunches. It was issues like this that actually blew us away.
Our head information Prosper did every day well being checks on us and as soon as at increased elevations actually stored an in depth eye on us. Certainly one of our crew (and ER nurse) required O2 on summit day and this was dealt with with nice care and professionalism. I am an ICU nurse and may say these guides had loads of expertise with AMS. They knew precisely what to look at for and all the time erred on the secure facet.
Lastly I’ve to say Foustine the prepare dinner. We all the time had extra meals than we may eat and it was all the time tasty. We joked to one another that we had been consuming higher on Kili than we do at dwelling however there was some reality to it as nicely.
I’d completely trek with these guys once more!
