Climbing to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895m) is an experience you will never forget. And, on this 7-day adventure, we would like to guide you to the summit of the legendary peak via the Machame Route.

The Machame Route, which is also known as the Whiskey Route, is the most popular route for reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro. The scenery you get to see throughout this famed route is nothing short of awe inspiring. However, the drawback of that abundance of beauty is the route is quite challenging, due to its steepness. Hence, why this trip takes 7-days, while other routes to the top of the peak are done in more time.

We will be approaching Kilimanjaro from the South, driving from Moshi to the Machame Gate. From there, we will trek through the gorgeous rain forest to the Shira Plateau. At that point, we will begin our journey up the mountain. Throughout the expedition, we will be spending our evenings in various camps. At the camps, you will get to enjoy spectacular views of the stars above. We will trek to the summit of the peak from Barafu. We will then make our descent of the peak along the Mweka Route.

Due to the challenging nature of the Machame Route, it is important that participants on this trip have prior mountaineering experience. You should also be in good physical condition.

We are very happy to offer this 7-day adventure to the top of Kilimanjaro via it’s most popular and scenic route. To join us on this trip, please send a request.

We can also take you to the top of the peak along the newer Lemosho Route, on this 8-day trip.

What people are saying about Sirikwa



We had an amazing time during our journey to the summit of Lenana . It was really difficult but with the help and accurate direction of our guide , James, we were able to reach the summit just to eclipse our eyes with the sunrise. I will never forget the images and the feeling of accomplishment from the top . During our ascendant we had a wonderful team of driver , porters , cook and guide : Willis, bernard, terrace, Joseph, jackelin, Simon , Tim and James ; all of them gave to us a warm welcome, always smiling and making sure we were confortable and mostly safe. The only discomfort was at Shipton camp where the conditions are really precarious. It looks like no one care about honouring the beauty of nature that surround the camp. They ( rock mountain hotel ) should respect such a lovely location, be proud and take measurements to have a camp on the level that the site offers. We really felt like sleeping in a pig pen 1 toilet for 20 people with bumped beds with not ladders and no space between one another . Really it is a place that need URGENTLY a remake . With regard on the main agency EXPLORE-SHARE ; we experienced an issue post booking . We did not received clear information, our question where not answered , etc . Fortunately , Nicky came and sorted out everything for us ( grateful forever) she made the changes needed and we finally got the best ( Siriwa travel). In short “UNIQUE EXPERIENCE, where challenge is constantly surrounded by a great scenery in a huge National Park”. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️



You did not give a detailed packing list for this trekking. it would be nice if you already to give the option to stay in the Austrian Hut (we did) . The daily description could be better. The first day we walked 5 km and the last day 9km. The other days we walked 7-8 hours
