HIGHLIGHTS
  • Machame offers the best route for acclimatization
  • Fantastic views of natural scenery and snowcapped peaks
  • Ascent to Uhuru Peak, the highest point on African continent
  • Higher probability of making it to the summit
For those who only have 6 days to climb Kilimanjaro, the Machame route is the best choice because of its acclimatization profile. Compared to other six day routes, the Machame route exposes the climber to higher elevations quicker (day three) which kickstarts the body's adaptation to altitude. However, this route requires that a person be in good shape to be able to tackle the challenging elevation gains and losses.

The 6-day Machame route offers a unique experience to test your physical fitness and mental prowess. However, our professional crew will be there to help you have a smooth climb and a great adventure. The route takes you through thick forests, where colobus monkeys and other animals can be spotted, into heath and moorland, until you reach the snowy caps of the summit.

From your hotel in Moshi, you will be driven to the Mount Kilimanjaro National Park gate, where the trek begins. Overnights on the Machame route will be in tents.

“From Amos greeting us at the Kilimanjaro airport, to Guides, and all of the porters and our cook helping us on our 7 days hike up Mount Kilimanjaro.
They run a very competent and professional Kilimanjaro climbing company that supplied us with everything we needed to succeed on our summiting Mount Kilimanjaro hiking the Machame route. Our expectations were regularly exceeded with all aspects of our trip! The food was fantastic, the tents and sleeping bags kept us warm and the charming personalities of the whole team who took much enjoyment in helping us because they clearly love their jobs! We were treated amazingly well.
This is the only company I would use to climb Mount Kilimanjaro again.”
The perfect company for the hardest thing I have accomplished

“Amos was our main contact and he was always quick to respond with any information that we needed as well as being very accommodating to our needs. The guides for the trek were also great, helping us along every step of the way. Would definitely recommend Migration for any of their offered trips or even for organising a custom itinerary!”
