About this trip

 The Machame route, also known as the "Whiskey" route, is the most popular route on Kilimanjaro. Machame’s draw      is in its scenic beauty. However, the trail is considered difficult, steep and challenging, particularly due to      its shorter itinerary. Therefore this route is better suited for more adventurous folks or those with some high      altitude, hiking or backpacking experience.  The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the south, beginning with a short drive from Moshi to Machame Gate.   The path leads hikers through the rain forest to Shira Plateau. Here, many of Kilimanjaro’s routes converge. Then   the route turns east and traverses underneath Kilimanjaro's Southern Ice Field on a path known as the Southern   Circuit before summiting from Barafu. Descent is made via the Mweka route.  Burigi Chato Safaris® offers Machame as a seven day group climb or as a six day private climb. The six day   variation combines days four and five, going from Barranco Camp to Barafu Camp without staying at Karanga.

Itinerary

Machame Gate to Machame
KILIMANJARO HIKING/CLIMBING

  

        

  The drive from Moshi to the Mount Kilimanjaro National Park Gate takes about 50 minutes. The journey passes through the village of Machame which is located on the lower slopes of the mountain. We now leave the park gate and walk through the rain forest on a winding trail up a  ridge. Lower down, the trail can be muddy and slippery. Gaiters and trekking poles are a good idea here. We continue a short distance until we reach the Machame Camp.
