Safari Experience

Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in 8 Days through Machame Route

Bookings

We accept Bookings for the 8 Days Mt. Kilimanjaro Climb Machame Route at any given time of the season.

Facts

Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest Mountain in East Africa as well as in Africa.

The eight days Machame variation is the ideal schedule for this route. On the 7 day Machame route, the trek from Barranco to Barafu is broken up into two days, allowing for a short day just prior to the summit attempt. This is important because summit day begins very early, around midnight, so climbers are sleep deprived going into the toughest day on the mountain. By having a short day beforehand, climbers can be better rested.

The 8 day Machame route is highly recommended and used by most prominent Kilimanjaro operators.
