Climb Kilimanjaro: Machame Route


from £2,400 pp

(ex international flights)


8 days

Ever dreamt of climbing the highest mountain in Africa? This climb along the popular Machame Route will be an experience you will never forget! The Machame Route features incredibly beautiful scenery, is great for acclimatisation and is not as expensive as some other routes. This is due to its easy access from the town of Moshi, with only a 45-minute drive to reach the starting point. The Machame Route is most commonly done over 6 or 7 days. The longer the climb, the more time your body has to acclimatise to the mountain and the high altitudes. The success rate on Machame Route is extremely high, and most visitors can enjoy the experience of making it to the peak. Hike during the day and use the night to sleep - this allows your body to adjust to the altitude and have the strength to make it to the summit.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
