CLIMB KILIMANJARO - Machame Route

High on most hiker's bucket list - Climb to the highest point in Africa
1/5

DESCRIPTION

At 5,895m, The peak of Kilimanjaro is the highest point on the Africa continent and is the highest free-standing volcano in the world.

The variety of landscapes encountered each day, the knowledge of the guides and the great company of the porter crew all make for an experience that is truly unforgettable.

 

There are many different routes used to reach the summit and we have chosen one that provides the group with the greatest chance of successfully summiting this wonderful lump of rock.

 

The route chosen is The Machame Route.  This is a hiking route and not a technical climbing route - hiking is easy and on defined trails

The beautiful and challenging Machame route approaches the mountain from the south-west and ascends through lush, fertile rainforest, before climbing up onto the moorlands of the Shira Plateau - one of the three calderas that make up the mountain. From there we pass the great lava tower and circumnavigate part of the southern aspect of Kibo crater, before ascending to the crater rim and then on to the summit.
