7 Day Mount Kilimanjaro trekking Via Machame Route

6 Day 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 Goshine Safaris Africa. Despite being a tough climb compared to the Marangu route, the 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. Unlike the Marangu route which is a gradual ascent, the Machame route is has steeper trails and climbers walk longer distances. This route offers some of the most spectacular scenery while on the mountain. The Machame route starts in the south west side of the mountain and proceeds steeply north, traversing the Shira plateau and eventually joining the Shira and Lemosho routes at the Shira camp.

This path is less well-trodden so it can get somewhat overgrown in places and it is often wet and muddy underfoot.
