4 of us volunteers climbed Lemosho route with Bless Africa Tours and Safaris. And highly recommend them. They were professional, well equipped, motivated us along the way. What you want to make sure is that they are a registered company... if it is just a guy's name then he doesn't have TALA license. Which is very important because if anything happens on the hook the company under which the climb is registered is on the hook. The way they treat their porters and guides is key too as many get paid very little. Our tour operator went right after the climb and paid them all and we gave them our tips personally, that way we knew that they were getting it.
