Machame Route

Kilimanjaro Climb

10 day trip / 6 days Kilimanjaro trekking

Short & sharp...

To climb Kilimanjaro on our 10 day Machame itinerary (trekking for 6 days), you can join one of many Open Group Challenge climbs throughout the year, departing from the UK. You can even climb with us over New Year for a celebration with a real difference!

Our 6 day Kilimanjaro Machame Route trek heads in from the south western side of the National Park, initially through the dense rain forest, and approaches the summit of Kibo via Barafu Camp and Stella Point. It is currently the most popular route on Kilimanjaro and not without good reason, even though it's perhaps a bit tougher than the 7 day climb on the Lemosho Route (which actually mirrors the Machame Route from Day 3 onwards).

There's an acclimatisation allowance by heading up to Lava Tower on Day 3, and combined with varied topography and features along the way, makes it one of the most interesting ascents of Kilimanjaro for those who feel confident. On reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro you will feel on top of the world!
