  • 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.

This Was an Awesome Experience
“Last week my husband and I finally did the 6 days private Kilimanjaro Machame route trek after a lot of uncertainties owing to Coronavirus related travel restrictions. Amos advised us to take add an extra day for acclimatization and we are very glad that we took his advice. Our actual experience is a lifelong experience of the pleasure and pain that came with trek. Were it not for the amazing climbing crew with Epa as the senior guide, we definitely would not have made it safely to the summit. They ensured our safety and comfort all through the 6 days, their expertise, experience and motivation led us to Uhuru Peak. Everything from the daily trekking distances, equipment, food, water, tents, sleeping bags, chemical toilet, first-aid boxwas well planned for.This was an awesome experience”

Great Climb
“Kilimanjaro trekking with Migration Venture was recommended by a former classmate and I happy that I listened to her advice.Every little detail of our six days Machame route climb was meticulously planned by Amos and his reservations team then perfectly carried out by senior mountain guide Epa and Vitalis his assistant. The climbing equipment was top of the range and in mint condition, tents kept us warm on the coldest nights, mats & sleeping bags comfortable to lie on. We had many great moments and nice surprises during the climb, as we clambered through different vegetation, there were few animals, mainly monkeys but lots of birds which I loved. We had great weather during the trek and it was great to reach the summit.I would not hesitate to recommend Migration Venture to other climbers.”

An Adventure Absolutely Worth It
“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.”
