KILIMANJARO - LEMOSHO ROUTE - Let the adventure begin

Hi, Are there any other brave souls out there doing the same date? We can't wait but are a little anxious as to what is ahead of us.  It is something we have spoken about doing for quite some time. We are both from Scotland.


Hi there I'm also on this trip. Never done anything like this before so you're not the only ones that are feeling a little anxious. Looking forward it, see you there .

David (fellow Scot)

Hi David,

Great to hear we have another fellow Scot in the group. We are both originally from Aberdeen but now live in Banff. Where abouts do you hail from? We've climbed a few Munroes  and are keeping up the walking regime but as far as the altitude sickness goes apparently it is something you cannot train for  :-(   I was speaking to one of the guys from Exodus and he happened to mention that there would be 9 females and 3 males in the group.  



I'm from Bonnybridge which is near Falkirk. I have spoken to a few people who have done Kili and they all said they had off days with some form of altitude sickness. They also said take your time, so I think thats going to be my plan. Are you guys on the group flight?

Thanks Jo for taking the time to post and  for all your helpful advice. Anything that helps make the experience easier and even more enjoyable is good in my book.

David, can I ask, are you in the medical profession? I noticed part of your username is 999 and thought you might do something along that line? or am I well off the mark! No, we are doing our own flights. The exodus flight times for us meant that we were going to arrive late in the evening of the 25th. We didn't want to get in that late especially when we would have to get our kit all sorted out before setting off the following day so we are flying out on the 24th and will make our way back to the airport on the 25th to meet up with the group. We are flying from Aberdeen via Amsterdam. Can't believe it's only 3 weeks to go! 


Thanks Jane for the top tips.


Lindsay, unfotunately you're well off the mark. I'm a power engineer. Truth be told 999 is part of my e.mail address, makes my username easy to remember. Sounds like you guys have got it sussed getting there early.
