  • Trek along the challenging, but rewarding Machame Route.

  • Spend your nights in different, comfortable mountain huts.


One of, if not the most popular climbing route to the summit of Kilimanjaro (5,895m), the Macheme Route is a great way to explore, enjoy and conquer this incredible peak.

The highest mountain in all of Africa, Kilimanjaro stands like a titan, surrounded by gorgeous landscape. And, along the Machame Route, you will get to make your through a great deal of the amazing forest on the way to the mountain all the way to the Shira Plateau. From there, we will go to the Machame Gate before making our way progressively up the mountain.

The Macheme Route, which is also known as the Whiskey Route, has one of the highest success rates when it comes to reaching the summit of the peak. The reason for that is it offers great acclimatization by helping climbers walk high and sleep low. You will also get to rest in comfortable mountain huts during the expedition as well.

Well known for the fantastic viewpoints that offer some of the best views of and from Kilimanjaro, the Macheme Route is not without its challenges. Since it offers the shortest itinerary, the route is quite demanding. It is also quite steep and physically tiring. As a result, participants on this trip should be in good physical condition. Prior hiking experience is recommended as well.

To climb a mountain like Kilimanjaro is to make the dream of many adventurers come true. To enjoy the experience for yourself, please send a request. We look forward to guiding you.

We also offer an 8-day climb of the mountain along the quieter and less used Shira Route.
