7 Day Kilimanjaro Climb - Machame route

The Machame route, also referred to as the Whiskey route, is one of the most popular routes on Kilimanjaro and a favorite for Alaitol Safaris. Machame route has one of the highest summit success rates given the topography of the route which allows climbers to “trek high & sleep low” hence making it a more favorable route for acclimatization.  This route offers some of the most spectacular scenery while on the mountain.
