About this trip

 7 days Kilimanjaro hiking up via Machame route and hiking down via Marangu route probably has a slight edge on the scenery in large part because the route up and down is different, Regardless, both routes are scenic and traverse the same range of ecosystems from tropical jungle, to mountain heath, alpine and finally apex or arctic. But the challenge comes when client select this option will be required to pay the double fees which might be expensive compared to the normal 6 days Machame route package, where you descend via Mweka
The path leads hikers through the rain forest to Shira Plateau. Here, many of Kilimanjaro’s routes converge. The climb begins in the lush rainforest and follows a path that offers occasional views of Mt Meru, Shira Ridge as well the main summit of Mt Kilimanjaro – Kibo.
On the 7-day Machame route with overnight at Kosovo camp, on day 5 the we trek from Karanga we pass Barafu camp direct Kosovo Camp for Overnight, allowing for a short day just prior to the summit attempt. Overnighting at Kosovo camp is important because we take a full night’s sleep and get up at our usual time, so climbers are sleep deprived going into the toughest day on the mountain. By having a short day beforehand, climbers can be better rested. The 7-day Machame route with overnight at Kosovo camp is highly recommended.

Itinerary

DAY 1 MACHAME CAMP
GATE-MACHAME CAMP (7 Days Kilimanjaro tour by Machame route Safaris)

 After breakfast you will be picked up at the lodge and taken to the Kilimanjaro entrance gate. While your guide is busy with the registration forms, you can be preparing yourself for the climb and once this is all done, your Kilimanjaro adventure will begin. In no time you will be deep within the magnificent mountain rainforest with ancient trees, primeval ferns, liana, lichen and moss that carpets the ground and drapes from the trees. You will hear and with a little luck, even spot the beautiful black and white colobus monkeys in the treetops. After 5 to 6 hours, you will reach Machame Camp which is situated just above the tree line. Here, at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro, you will have your first dinner followed by an overnight stay in tents.
