Day by Day Itinerary Back to Trips for Tanzania

Kilimanjaro Climb - Machame Route

East Africa offers exciting climbing adventures. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, presents a formidable challenge. Successfully climbing this mountain is an accomplishment to be proud of. The Machame route approaches Kilimanjaro through forest and moorland from the southwest, and joins the Shira route before traversing beneath the southern icefields of Kibo. Over 30% of all climbers now use the Machame route. The six-day itinerary ensures good acclimatization, and gives you the best possible chance to enjoy the magnificent scenery. Knowledgeable guides and porters will accompany you and carry your luggage. Your mountain climbing adventure begins with an overnight stay at the base lodge. After a hearty breakfast, you and your team depart on your climb through the lower rainforests. You’ll notice the landscape changing as you begin the ascent. As you get closer to the peaks, breathing becomes more difficult as the air is very thin and the cold cuts through to the bone. As the rising sun's rays touch the earth, Africa is revealed in splendor far below. This sight provides the impetus to push on through the final stages of your climb until you reach the highest peak.
