The 6-day Machame route is the most beautiful route up the famous Mount Kilimanjaro. The route is best suited to adventurous hikers looking for an authentic and rustic experience, as the route offers tented accommodation only, and all your equipment and supplies are brought up with help from a porter. A cook prepares all your meals. However, hikers will be rewarded with a scenic splendour that is 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 is normally completed in a minimum of six days. The added benefit to the six days means you are afforded the most valuable commodity on the mountain – time to acclimatize.

This is our most successful and popular hiking route on Mt. Kilimanjaro, mainly as a result of the following two important factors. First, on day 3 of the hike, the topography of this route allows you to climb high and sleep low – as you start from Shira camp (3 847m) hike up to Lava Tower (4 642m) and then down to Barranco camp (3 984m) for overnight. Second, the summit attempt path from Barafu camp has less loose scree (rocks) compared to the summit attempt path from Kibo Hut, making it slightly easier to reach the crater rim.

NB: With small Additional cost we can book for you accommodation before or/and after summiting Mount Kilimanjaro.

“Our experience with Dahlia Africa Kilimanjaro Team was wonderful. My wife and I hiked the Mount Kilimanjaro this February. They sent pre-hike information to help condition us for the hike and tell us the equipment we needed. We met the owner Brian and our guide Faza the day before we started. They checked our equipment and explained how the next 9days Northern circuit route would roll out climbing. Faza was a terrific guide having hiked the Mount Kilimanjaro over 100times. He made our experience fun and informative with his knowledge of the Kilimanjaro, pointing out names of rock formations and plants native to the area. He also told us some history of the Kilimanjaro! I highly, highly recommend them for any trip to Kilimanjaro or for that matter any hike on their website you would like to take.”
