The Machame route, also referred to as the Whiskey route, is one of the most popular routes on Kilimanjaro and a favorite for us. Machame route is one of the highest summit success rates given the topography and nature of the route which allows climbers to “trek high & sleep low” hence making it a more favorable route for acclimatization. This route offers some of the most spectacular scenery while on the mountain. The Machame route starts in the south west side of the mountain and proceeds steeply north, traversing the Shira plateau and eventually joining the Shira and Lemosho routes just after the Shira cave camp. The Machame route can be done in minimum 6 days but a 7days trek is recommended to allow climbers been well rested and acclimatized before making the final ascent to the summit.

“It was my first time to climb Mountain and I am so excited to reach to the top roof of Africa that was a great and fantastic feeling to be there; I used 7 Days Kilimanjaro Trekking via Machame route as a solo hiker. Though Machame route ( “whisky route” ) seems to be a challenging one but worth it for a successful and great victory rate.”

“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”

“Climbing Kilimanjaro is both a physical and mental challenge, we booked the trip to Kilimanjaro 10 months before going. Our first and all time inquiries were promptly replied to, and the fact that we were being regularly informed on various tips for our Kilimanjaro preparation through emails made everything so uncomplicated before arrived and for that gladly we came prepared
And big thanks to Kilisa Tours & Safaris as they deserve it since we truly enjoyed every bit of the organization, substitution and programs they have for their team
The route choice to Kilimanjaro 8 Days Lemosho Route” and that suited our time and budget.
And the service provided in the Mountain was Top Notch; the guides were brilliant [Bakari & Bryson], friendly, knowledgeable, humorous when needed. Porters where incredible especially how it felt hard with us at times but they never missed a smile on their face and that was really encouraging, the chef was phenomenal we had the best food on the mountain! Two of my friends were vegetarian and Chef [Kulwa-smiley guy] It was obvious that He gladly made them specific food to answer their requests. I can’t write every detail but to narrate the whole crew was unbelievable!! They pushed us humored us chatted with us most of all they made us feel safe...They were absolutely fantastic and honestly we couldn’t have made it without them
The experience of being with the mountain family is just extremely good and the sense of achievement when you reach the top of Mount Kilimanjaro [UHURU PEAK TANANIA .5895M/19341Ft] is massive.
Really had a great time and the most amazing experience and we definitely recommended it “make sure you book it
We are so much very happy to be having this amazing and a life time experience to climb the highest mountain of Africa and world’s highest free standing mountain”
