The Machame Route, with its diverse landscape and fantastic views, offers a unique experience to test your will power, fitness finesse and mental strength. The route takes you through lush rainforest, where colobus monkeys roam, into heath and moorland, with its many ferns and ericas, until finally reaching the icy caps of the mountain top. Overnights on the Machame Route will be in tents. It is not difficulty to climb because you will be guided by our professional tour guide.
I booked my climb with Enosa via an international intermediary which worked well for a very decent price.
Together with an another European we formed a group of two climbers, supported by a total of 11 support staff: 2 guides, 1 cook, 1 waiter/porter and 7 porters.
All of them worked with their heart. Their loyalty to you is incredible in allowing you to reach the top. Also the porters worked incredibly hard. Guidance was very professional, while the cooking was magical in what we received every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Through all sorts of ways, the guides follow your physical (and mental) condition closely which gives a good feeling. If necessary, they have various measures they can initiate. I received a packing list from Enosa after booking and had a breefing and gear check with the guide one day before the start. What I forgot to bring I could borrow from Enosa.
Perhaps only thing for improvement is regarding tipping. There is much being said online about how much to tip. Numbers can vary greatly online. Much is also dependent on group and staff size. Enosa, but other operators as well, might help in providing clarity on this so you can better prepare this before getting to Tanzania. It is not so easy to lay your hand on large amounts of dollars in the country itself. Enosa allowed for paying tip with Creditcard which helped!
I will definitely advise booking with Enosa anytime! I want to thank the whole team as well as Noel Ernest for making this never to forget!”
Me and my son had a unforgettable trip. Thank you Noël, Anton, Gilbert, and all the others who accompanied us. We will never forget you.”
I highly recommend Enosaexpeditions.com, they got the best possible team. Big thanks to our guides Wilfred, Mahamod and Fratterino, we wouldnt have reached the summit without them. Also a big thanks to all porters, cook and our favorite waiter Bariki.
All services were provided as agreed, our tents were ready every day when reaching the camps, marvelous food and very good advise by the guides.
Remember, of you want to make it all the way up to Uhuru peak, just go Pole Pole and follow your Enosa guides.
