The 7 day Machame route approaches Kilimanjaro through forest and moorland from the south-west, and joins the Shira route before traversing beneath the southern icefields of Kibo. The rainforest is extremely beautiful and there is a tangible sense of 'wilderness' once the higher elevations are reached. The views of Mt. Meru floating on the clouds are simply unforgettable, and we make our final ascent to the summit by the stunning Barafu route. The seven day itinerary gives maximum possible acclimatisation, and also gives us plenty of time to enjoy the magnificent scenery.
We have our own dedicated Kilimanjaro team, led by Samson Lauwo, the great grandson of the famous 'Mzee Lauwo' who led Hans Mayer, the first European to summit the mountain in 1889.
Having our own team means we can easily arrange a trek on any date you wish, and accommodate your trekking needs.
For our Kilimanjaro treks we can pick you up from either Kilimanjaro Airport or Arusha Airport. The treks include airport transfers, two nights bed and breakfast, all park fee's, camping equipment, 3 meals a day and the services of our expert guides, porters and cooks.
