  • Summit Kilimanjaro via Machame route
  • Climb high and sleep low for better acclimatization
  • Enjoy scenic views along the way
Do not miss out on this chance to reach the top of Africa. Be part of this ultimate guided experience to reach to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and get back within seven days. You will follow the Machame route to the summit of the mountain during this trip.

While Machame route is the most popular among all the available routes, it is also probably the most scenic as it allows you to experience both the southwestern as well as the southeastern sides of the mountain. Despite being a tough climb compared with the Marangu route, Machame has one of the highest summit success rates, given the topography of the route that allows climbers to 'trek high and sleep low'.

Other Practical InformationHow fit do you have to be to climb Kilimanjaro? Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is a physical undertaking, which means that you should prepare yourself accordingly. Being in a good shape is important in many respects. Obviously, strong, conditioned legs make it easier to walk uphill and downhill for sustained periods of time. Similarly, general aerobic fitness allows the body to function efficiently with less oxygen, while a fit body is more likely to withstand the stress of consecutive days of hiking and camping. Finally, a positive mental attitude can work wonders for you when you are fatigued and doubts arise. Therefore, while you don't need to be exceptionally fit for this trek, you do need to get your body used to the particular demands of this hike. Otherwise you will feel so tired on the first few days that you won't have energy left when it counts. The best way to train for a Kilimanjaro climb is to simply walk on a regular basis.
