7 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing Adventure Safari – Machame Route


Short Overview

Machame Route is arguably the most scenic and probably the most beautiful route by which to ascent Mount Kilimanjaro. The trek begins in the South – west area of the mountain as Machame Gate and descents down Mweka on the south – East side of the Mountain offering climbers the most varied scenery of Mount Kilimanjaro. You will visit Shira plateau, Barance and Lava Tower.


Machame route is known as “ Whiskey Route” in comerison to Marangu because it is a more difficult route and trekkers sleep in camping tents as opposed to Huts. Machame is the second most popular route used on the mountain.


Nights are spent in ‘Mountain tents’ sleeping in two per tent ( 3 man tents) thus enough space for your luggage. All your supplies and camping equipment are carried by porters and meals are prepared.
