Kilimanjaro Safari Trekking 

 Machame Route 

 8 days / 7 nights 

 Kilimanjaro – Machame  Route


Traditionally called the “whiskey” route, it is perhaps the route that our Safari Bike Africa customers make the most. One of the reasons to be one of our favorite routes to Kilimanjaro is because of the good acclimatization to the altitude and consequently the high rate of success in doing the top. We will cross tropical jungles until we reach the Shira plateau, where the landscape changes to high mountain deserts where we will observe the perpetual snows of the Kilimanjaro summit from the center, before reaching the final part and face glaciers on the way to Barafu. During the trek, you sleep in tent camps.


If you are a great adventurer of the mountain, lover of nature, you have physical endurance and you like to camp, you can not miss this exciting adventure on the Machame route
