Kilimanjaro is the African continent’s highest and well-known mountain. With its snow-capped peak, it justifiably features on nearly every adventurer’s list of must-dos.
If you’re not in a hurry, why not consider the Machame route, Kibo from the west is arguably the most logical choice for a varied, stimulating and safe ascent of Kilimanjaro. It takes one day longer than the more popular Marangu but is slightly more challenging.
Accommodation on the ascent is in tents, adding to the sense of adventure. The extra time taken acclimatizing means a higher success rate!
The Machame is actually the second most popular route for Mount Kilimanjaro climb. From the village at Machame with an altitude of 1,490 meters, you are lead by an expert guide and a team of porters and cooks. You at once enter into the lush rainforest, as heavy rains frequently visit this side of the mountain. It can be a muddy and slippery experience. The alpine moorland is another characteristic landscape in the early stages of this ascent. During the ascent, an optional scramble up the imperious Lava Tower is an option for those with energy to spare.
With our experienced, knowledgeable and, above all, passionate staff, we take care of all the complex and important arrangements for the ascent of this legendary mountain, essential to giving you the best Kilimanjaro experience. Happy climbing, indeed.
