Overview

On this trek you will climb the tallest peak in the African continent, Mt. Kilimanjaro, via the Machame route. Also known as the Whiskey route, Machame was the first camping route established to hike Mount Kilimanjaro.  

The region of Machame was initially referred to as the Great African Giant. Its steep hills and ever-changing climate will challenge the most skilled and adventurous hiking enthusiasts. Nevertheless, the mesmerizing views and diverse ecosystems as you ascend the Giant will enthrall you to the wonders of the region.  

The route starts with a short drive from Moshi town to Machame gate before the hike starts. The route begins from the south, heads to west and then later traverses to underneath Kilimanjaro’s southern ice field before you summit from south-east of the mountain.  

Trip Highlights:  

- Summit one the tallest seven peaks of the World at 19,340 feet.  

- Navigate Kilimanjaro’s Machame Route, the most scenic routes.  

- Cross 6 ecological zones from lush rainforest to the harsh, beautiful arctic zone.

- Experience luxurious camping with spacious tents, fresh meals and more!
