The Machame route, also known as the "Whiskey" route, is the most popular route on Kilimanjaro. Machame’s draw is in its scenic beauty. However, the trail is considered difficult, steep and challenging, particularly due to its shorter itinerary. Therefore this route is better suited for more adventurous folks or those with some high altitude, hiking or backpacking experience.

The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the south, beginning with a short drive from Moshi to Machame Gate. The path leads hikers through the rain forest to Shira Plateau. Here, many of Kilimanjaro’s routes converge. Then the route turns east and traverses underneath Kilimanjaro's Southern Ice Field on a path known as the Southern Circuit before summiting from Barafu. Descent is made via the Mweka route.

NB: Accommodation before and/or after climb (Can be arranged on small additional cost).

Joep's review for another Dahlia Africa tour
“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.”

Hellen's review for another Dahlia Africa tour
“If we could give this safari tour company more than five stars, we would. They helped us in creating a truly EPIC African Safari & KILIMANJARO TREKKING!! Everything exceeded our expectations. We told them our interests and priorities for the trip and our agents worked hard to make sure it was all we wanted and more. Even after a few changes with travel dates.
Our safari tour designer provided absolutely professional and first-class service. Every booking and guide, porters, driver and staff person we met were exemplary, and the suggestions they made for us were fantastic. As first-time travelers to Africa, with group of 10 students we had many questions, and our agent responded promptly and in detail to all our questions. Brian, the companys managing director and his partner met with us in person not once but twice - that level of service is something we have not encountered before. Our Kili guide and Safari driver was one of the most knowledgeable and friendly tour staffs we have ever met - we were sad to leave them. We cannot recommend this safari tour company highly enough! Our expectations were high, and they were exceeded!”
