  • The Machame Route of Mt Kilimanjaro is probably the most scenic route
The Total hiking distance of the Machame route is approximately 100 km, distributed over 6 days of trekking up and down Kilimanjaro. The Machame Route is probably the most beautiful route up Kilimanjaro. All your equipment and supplies are portered and a cook prepares all your meals. Where accommodation on the Marangu route is in huts, the Machame route offers strictly tents only. This makes Machame, also referred to as the"Whiskey route", better suited to the slightly more adventurous and authentic hiker.

Being an adventurous route the Machame route rewards you with a scenic splendor, not seen on the Marangu route. From late afternoon sunsets at Shira, to the misty revelations of Kibo at the great Barranco Wall, the Machame route offers the adventurous hiker a stunning scenic "slide show" over 6 days.

The Machame route is normally completed in a minimum of 6 days, and there is an added benefit to this, as you are afforded the most valuable commodity on the mountain - acclimatization. The Machame route takes you high to Lava Tower (4630m) on the day 3 and brings you down by nearly 700m for an overnight at Barranco camp (3950m), a secret to successful acclimatization.

We kindly refer to the Itinerary for a Day-to-Day description. We look forward to giving you an experience of a lifetime. Please do write to us if any questions at all, or if you're looking for a customised trek offer.
