All about the 10 DAYS – LEMOSHO ROUTE.

TRIP INFOS,

This is without a doubt, the longest and the little used route, its unspoiled and most beautiful way up to the Shira plateau. The  landscape is varied, with possible animal sightings on the first day hike. This is one of the few routes where an armed ranger will accompany our group, since there are animals in the forest around Lemosho Glades. Our private vehicle will take you TO and pick you FROM the starting point of the trek. Accommodation under this route is Basic, whereby guest will sleep in tented camps.
