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.
