Join us on this eight-day trip that will take you to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro via the Machame Route. This route is also known as the "Whiskey Route" and is popular among travelers for the charming views it offers. We will pick you up from your accommodation in Moshi and drive you to Machame Gate, the starting point of your journey, on the first day of the trip.

Continue your journey through New Shira, Barranco, Karanga, Barafu and Crater camps to reach the top of Africa's highest peak before it is time to start your journey downhill. The Machame Route is a bit uneven and hence challenging and can be quite difficult for novice climbers. However, it is a great route for those with some experience in climbing and want to enjoy great scenery.

Please note that the tour price also included one night's accommodation in Moshi before and after the climb. For more details, please go through the itinerary below.

“Kilisa Tours & Safaris is really a perfect tour operator and we were able to contact from the email to the personal WhatsApp-communication with Naick

Shawn and I spent about 2 weeks in Tanzania, with arrangements made this local tour company who supplied our guide Bacari and Tammy Throughout the Mountain and Chris during our safari and everything was taken care off

porters/cook. Our trip was spent climbing Kilimanjaro 8-Days via Machame Route while we got the chance to Spend a night at Crater Camp during descent and spent 5-Days visiting various animal parks and that include Lake Manyara, Siringet, Tarangire and Ngoro Ngoro but we also we had one day to tour around Moshi town before we departure. We’re so happy we had a great experience with this company.

During our safari we saw more animals and beautiful scenery than we ever thought we would, everything was just thrilling.

And during the climb, well ...It was challenging but worthy the experience besides I asked Bacari and he said All ages and all types climb and summit, so don't let that detour you from trying. Approach with common sense and respect the mountain [Fact] Lol

Okay Why do I recommend this company? So far Kilisa’s Team were attentive, friendly and extremely kind ever since we arrived everything was great and from the experience we had with it feels like it’s their priority to continue providing top-notch service to customers like you always which is I highly recommend you and you and you

Besides they offer the best prices and the highest quality Briefly, everything was really great!

It was truly an amazing wondrous experience.! In the end, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro was one of the best experiences in my life.”
