Join us on this seven-day, guided trip and reach the highest point in the African continent. The Machame route, also called the 'whiskey route', is one of the most popular routes used to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and our favourite as well. This route also has one of the highest summit success rates given the topography and nature of the route, which allows climbers to trek high and sleep low, hence making it a more favorable route for acclimatization.

In addition to higher chances of summit, the Machame route also offers some of the most spectacular scenery along the way to the top. It starts on the southwestern side of the mountain and proceeds steeply north, traversing the Shira Plateau and eventually joining Shira and Lemosho routes right after the Shira Cave Camp.

Although travelers can complete their journey to the top and back in six days using this route, adding a day more to the itinerary like we have done is recommended for the sake of acclimatisation.
