On this trek, we will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa through the Machame route.

The route known as the “Whiskey” route, the Machame route is now the most popular ascent route on Mt Kilimanjaro. Compared with the Marangu route, the walking days on the Machame route are longer and the walks are steeper. However, the scenery is spectacular and landscape interesting. The Machame route is considered a difficult route and is better suited for more adventurous trekkers and those with some hiking or backpacking experience.

The Machame route is scenically beautiful and varied. However, due to its popularity, there are increased numbers of trekkers. The Machame route approaches the summit from the southwest and descends using the Mweka route, rewarding climbers with views of the expansive Shira Plateau, an optional scramble up Lava Tower, a climb up the Great Barranco wall, and a traverse underneath Kilimanjaro’s southern ice field.

This is a 7-day trip in total. Please go through the itinerary section to fin out what you'll be doing each day.

This was an amazing adventure
“Our guides (Peter and Daniel) amazing guides and very experienced. They checked our gear before the hike to ensure we had everything we needed. They monitored our heat rate and oxygen levels each night. They knew when we needed encouragement and went above and beyond to get all eight of us to the summit. The porters that carried our tents, food, etc were friendly and helpful. Braventure Africa is a local outfit who knows their stuff. We could not have done it without them. We highly recommend them if you are planning to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro.”
