Kilimanjaro Machame Route with Karanga Valley acclimatisation - 7 days

Often called the "Whiskey Route" this is a scenically beautiful trail, longer and much gentler than Umbwe or the Marangu route (the "Coca Cola Route"). Our itinerary provides valuable acclimatization by having extra, but shorter walking days during the trek.

General: Accommodation is camping throughout in 3 person mountain tents shared by two people. All your equipment will be carried by vehicle or local porters, you only carry a day-pack with personal gear. When camping you will not have to participate in camp chores. We buy fresh produce locally and to ensure good standards of hygiene all food is prepared by our own staff. We can cater for special dietary requirements and there are no extra food-kitty payments.
