About
If Marangu is the “Coca Cola” route, then the Machame Route is the “Whiskey” route. It is the second most popular and one of the most scenic routes on the mountain. All climbers sleep in tents (tents are included) and meals are served in a dinner tent or on a blanket outside. It is done over 6 days, so acclimatization is easier, and the success rate is fairly high. It is for physically fit people with some hiking experience. Descent is down the Mweka trail staying at the Mweka or Millennium camp the final night on the mountain.

Kilimanjaro hike, November 2019
Nov. 2019 • Solo
I did Machame route with TJT in November 2019. I can recommend the company as well as praise Emmanuel, Ringo and the rest of the team for making the hike one of my most interesting experiences and enduring memory.

Kilimanjaro - machame route
Jul. 2019 • Solo
Awesome team and friendship formed with Ringo, Deo and the 10-crew gang. Each day is a different hike adventure! Ringo is the best motivator especially on the memorable and challenging Summit day. He ensured we made it to the top and have time to take photos. Awesome team, great cook and hard working crew. Highly recommended on their service, expertise and professionalism!
