To climb Kilimanjaro over 7 days via the Machame route is much easier than 6 day versions and that is why we recommend it as part of a safari holiday itinerary. Machame is considered by many to be the most beautiful and scenic route up Mt. Kilimanjaro, passing through tropical montane rain forest to the snows of Kilimanjaro.
This climb is for a minimum of 2 guests, maximum of 8 on a set departure, with a large staff including the highly experienced chief guide, an assistant guide, cook, and porters. The camp is superbly outfitted, including thick foam mattresses for all the igloo tents, a toilet tent, mess tent complete with tables and chairs, and high frequency two-way radios for communication with base. There are set departures twice a month throughout the year.
