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.

“When my Husband and I decided to go in Tanzania and to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, After quite a bit of research. KILISA TOURS & SAFARIS always appeared with excellent comments and ratings from its customers. We decided on them and without a doubt we were successful
My husband and I feel like we went with appropriate expectations about the degree of comfort we were likely to encounter on the trip
We had really good guides and support! while, our cook made sure to cook the way we requested and we were always satisfied. I still find it hard to imagine the courage, the strength and patience with which the whole team got through each day with huge smiles
I suffered on the summit night gladly I had attitude sickness medication,our Guide was patient and had great empathy for Usand will always be grateful to the guys for looking after us so well,
After our climb, we went on a 3 days Camping safari drive to the Serengeti and Ngoro Ngoro crater. Once again, the level of service was just Incredible. Our guide Bakari was knowledgeable and flexible and managed to find all the big 5 for us. It was definitely the trip of a lifetime Bakari would drive long drives, then still have the energy to set up our tents...
I cannot speak more highly of this company as It was very affordable and they provided great service and would recommend booking with them if you are thinking of trekking Kilimanjaro or go on a safari.”

“The most memorable and exciting part of the holiday was of course the ascent of Kilimanjaro on summit day. It was exhilarating arriving at the peak after all the lead up to it and the views were fantastic.

The team had an excellent sense of humor, were honest and kind, and took great pride in their roles-we had a brilliant atmosphere in the camps because of this. Delicious meals were cooked up for us 3 times a day and a snack at tea time which surely helped us to the top. Tent were both laid out every night, including a separate mess tent for meals. All of good quality

We have no problem in recommend Kilisa Tours were exceptional and gave us the most unforgettable experience”
