Climbing Mountain Kilimanjaro

Machame Route Kilimanjaro

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro via the Machame Route which is, without a doubt, the most popular route to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro these days. This trail offers spectacular vistas, a decent difficulty, and enough of time to acclimate, making it an excellent choice for anyone with some spare time.

The Machame route is known as the “Whiskey Route” because it is thought to be more difficult than the Marangu route, which is known as the “Coca-Cola” route. On the other hand, unlike that trail, camping is permitted on Machame, therefore hikers will be sleeping in tents all the way to the top.

Machame Route Kilimanjaro passes through several well-known Mount Kilimanjaro attractions, including the famous Lava Tower and Shira Plateau. The trip takes hikers up and down a variety of valleys and hills, making it a little more difficult but rewarding them with some of the best vistas on the mountain.

As a result, the Machame route kilimanjaro is usually regarded as the most spectacular of all the routes up Mount Kilimanjaro, offering unique and varied landscapes to pass through on a daily basis. The trail begins on the mountain’s south flank, passes beneath the Southern Ice Field, and approaches the summit from the Barafu Camp.

Machame is a wonderful alternative for those who have a few extra days in their schedule. Because an extra day or two of acclimatization can make a major difference in the success rate, trekkers who take this route are more likely to reach the summit, despite the fact that it is a more difficult journey than the Marangu route.
 
The Barranco Wall, a steep rock face that might look fairly threatening on first approach, is one of the greatest and most imposing of those obstacles. Barranco isn’t quite as scary or challenging as it appears, however you’ll need to keep an eye on your step and possibly use your hands for added leverage while climbing over some places. The ascent normally takes an hour to an hour and a half, and the view from the top is well worth the effort.
 

The Machame Route’s disadvantage is that it might get busy at times. It is a popular alternative for Kilimanjaro hikers since it is so gorgeous and provides a few more days to adapt, which may make the trail and campsites very congested, especially during the high season.

Even so, if you’re looking for the quintessential Kilimanjaro experience, the Machame route is difficult to beat.

Machame is available as a seven-day or six-day climb on Kilimanjaro. The six-day option combines days four and five of the trip, taking you from Barranco Camp to Barafu Camp without stopping at Karanga. You don’t go to Karanga Camp.

The Best Time To Climb Mount Kilimanjaro

The months of January through early March, as well as June through October, are ideal to climb mount  Kilimanjaro. It provides a   comfortable hiking conditions because of the clear skies, great views, and sunshine, however, the weather has the potential to change dramatically.

Kilimanjaro can be climbed at any time of year, but some months are better than others. We recommend climbing Mount Kilimanjaro during the driest months of the year. We avoid the months of April and November because they are the rainiest, making the trails more dangerous.

Kilimanjaro Full Moon Climb

Kilimanjaro climbing during a full moon is a very popular tradition. Climbers choose a full moon climb because of clear skies, which make summiting a little bit easier due to enhanced visibility provided by the full moon.

Since on the summit day the climb begins at midnight, most climbers choose the full moon climb for the light it provides, but this is not the only reason.

Mount Kilimanjaro is beautiful in scenery, but on the full moon night, the beauty of this highest mountain in Africa is very scenic on this night. The summit is also beautiful when climbing during the new moon.

The Full Moon Summit is possible only 12 times every year.

Safari Tour with Rogers We had a very nice Safari Tour including Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti Park, saw all the animals and wildlife we wanted to see including cheetahs and two! rhinos. With Rogers we had a very nice, humble and experienced guide who we felt really safe and informed with. All went perfectly and smooth as planned.

Grandiose découverte du nord de la Tanzanie On a eu la chance de faire un circuit sur mesure avec Nyange Adventures: 1 jour d'immersion en pays Masai suivis de 4 jours de safari en camping (Tarangire, Serengeti et Ngorongoro), de 4 jours de trekking dans les Ngorongoro Highland (Olmoti, Bulati, Empakaai, Nayiobi, ...) et d'un jour au bord du lac Natron avant de rentrer. Nos guides Roger (safari), Maleton (trek) et Living (lac Natron) étaient tous au petits soins et attentifs à nos besoins. Notre 'Stomac Engeneer' Gody nous a accompagné sur tout le trajet pour le plus grand plaisir de nos papilles ! Nos 3 enfants (9, 11 et 13 ans) et nos parents nous ont accompagnés sur ce magnifique circuit. On recommande l'agence à toutes personnes intéressées à découvrir les peuples et la faune de ce coin de pays !

Beyond all expectations If you are looking for big name safari operators, Nyange is definitely your budget alternative, if not MUCH better than the former. And here's why: To start off, Amina, who is my main point of communication and adventure planner, had been extremely professional, patient, and friendly. She was always incessant in responding to my enquiries and requests. Amina was able to tailor a tour that best fits my interests and budget. As a solo traveller, her efforts in reviewing the accommodation and offering help amidst hiccups made me feel like I am in good hands. Her in-person greetings upon my arrival and departure speaks volume of how much she care about the clients. Without her assistance, I would not have been able to explore the beauty and tranquility of Tanzania with my guide, Alen (the actual spelling haha) /Allen/Alan/Allan. There is no one single adjective that can succinctly summarise the personality of Alen, for he is a guide full of great qualities: - Experienced: having been a safari guide for over 10+ years, Alen has exceptional eyes for spotting animal and sensing where/when the crossing happens, Alen fulfilled all my wishes - from seeing the Big5, watching multiple times of crossing within 3 days in Northern Serengeti, to seeing lions, cheetah, leopards right next to me. Any wildlife sightings that you hope for, he delivers. (p.s. a small tip for those travelling to Northern Serengeti in the wind season: bring earplugs if you are staying in tented camps! haha) - Professional: Alen has great skills when it comes to jeep manoeuvring, despite having witnessed countless of jeeps breaking down due to poor road conditions, we had never had an issue with our jeep -- extremely vital as time is of the essence when the crossing happens. - Strive for excellence: Alen always takes a step further when it comes to finding a lunch picnic spot, he looks for places with astonishing scenery whilst ensuring safety. He constantly seeks for feedbacks to make sure that I get the best out of the experience. - Hospitable: As a solo traveller myself, Alen has been entertaining and caring. He would always accompany me in the lounge area after dinner to chillax. There was never a dull moment with him. Alen is also passionate when it comes to introducing the culture of Tanzania, he looked for places where we could enjoy local food. He has been avid in teaching Swahili too! Overall, I am extremely impressed with what Nyange had delivered and hope you will find the same.

Great safari experience for both a solo female traveler & honeymooners! I have now gone on safari with Nyange Adventures twice, and I had an amazing experience each time. I strongly recommend using Nyange for any Tanzania safari. I first went in 2018 as a solo, female traveler to Tarangire Park & Ngorongoro Crater, and had a great time with a knowledgeable guide and comfortable tented camp. When my husband and I had the opportunity to go back to Tanzania for our honeymoon in 2022, I immediately contacted Nyange Adventures. Amina set up a great, personalized safari itinerary for us to go to Serengeti Park and Ngorongoro Crater. We stayed at great, mid-range accommodations (Tortilis Camp in Serengeti was one of the best places I've ever stayed in my life), and our guide, Kelvin, was amazing. He was friendly, knowledgeable, funny, and helpful, and we left as good friends. I also love that Nyange Adventures is a locally owned Tanzanian company--so many of the other tour operators are based in other countries, so your tourism dollars don't stay in Tanzania. Not so with Nyange, which is owned by and employs Tanzanians. As both a solo female traveler and again as honeymooners, I felt safe, well-cared for, respected, and had an absolutely incredible time. Plus, we saw all of the Big 5 (and a rhino baby, to boot!)! If my husband or I ever have a chance to go back to Tanzania, we'd surely contact Nyange Adventures again.

Great game, great guide, great time, old soggy tents ! Family of four - we extended the standard 4 day tour to 5 days (extra day in Serengeti). First day in Tarangire was amazing: zebra, giraffe, elephants, wildebeest everywhere and Baobabs. Campsite ok. Warm showers and power avail. Goddy the cook made delicious dinner, inc lovely fresh fruit. Drive to Serengeti not as long as we’d anticipated. Lovely to actually spend 2 nights in same place. Sadly weather wet and tents leaked significantly that night. Our tent also had broken zip which thankfully we managed to sort out to stop mosquitoes getting in, and were phenomenally smelly. I slept with nose in shirt!. Bed mats were basic and hard to sleep first night (we are 50 somethings/ rather cronky). Had been sent photo of thicker mats so disappointed. Ngorogoro camp site exciting with giraffe, buffalo, screeching tree hyrax (who knew such small cycle things could scream like that!) and zebras munching around tents/ en route to midnight toilet stop. At end of trip we had managed to see all the big five ( rhino only viewed from viewpoint in crater rim with good zoom though), watched 2 giraffe play “neck fighting”, hippos getting chopsy at pool by lunch spot, had an exciting time skidding around in the mud (Johnny our fabulous guide cool as a cucumber manoeuvred out of the rut eventually), saw bunch of lionesses chomping on a zebra and fending off a jackal. Johnny and Goddy also very helpful assisting us with minor issues (and soggy tent cleaning!), ever smiling and informative.

Amazing experience with a dreamteam Really enjoyed the 8 days Lemosho route with Nyange adventures and especially with our guides Robert and Herick. They really do anything to make sure that you manage the summit. They take your camera's and make photo's of you and the nature and scenery which is really nice because you just keep focussing on walking and climbing and forget taking pictures. Food is really good and every team member is professional and makes sure that you really enjoy the climbing. Lots of laughing and nice stories included. The guides are also very professional when it comes to health care. They check how you feel all the time and make you feel safe. Really recommend Nyange adventures for climbing the Kilimanjaro!

Best experience in Safaris in Tanzania The best description for Nyange is the slogan they use 'Come as a client leave as a friend'. Very well organized agency, all the logistics work perfectly, the experience provided is incredible, we can see in the details how everything is designed to make the unforgettable experience. All the staff and guides, are very friendly and make the experience even better. Thank you Praise, Ian and Living for the amazing days in Tanzania. We recommend the agency to everyone looking for tours in Tanzania.

Nyange for Kili is a no brainer I can’t recommend Nyange Adventures enough to anyone wanting to tackle Kilimanjaro!!! It was my first time not only solo travelling but also visiting the continent of Africa so I was a little nervous at first. The team at Nyange did an amazing job from keeping contact with me right up until my arrival , to making sure I get to the airport to leave on time. They answered all of my questions quick and was eager to tackle any challenge I had for them. An example of that is my checked bag had to be left in Amsterdam when I arrived in Moshi thus leaving a lot of my équipement behind. The team at Nyange not only made sure I had all of the equipment I needed for the trek, but also arranged for my stuff to be brought to me on the mountain during my trek. The equipment used was well on par, if not better I find than other operators I saw , and my guide (Robert) did amazing at guiding me to the summit and making this an unforgettable experience. The driver (Living) also did an amazing job at welcoming me into Tanzania as a first interaction and made me feel right at home back in Canada.

One of the best experiences Our experience was amazing and Alan (our guide) was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the history of the land, tress and animals. Thanks Alan for answering our endless questions lol. And thanks Amina for coordinating everything and making sure we get the best out of this experience. I would recommend 2 days in Serengeti, 1 Ngorongoro and 1 in Arusha (and visit the waterfall in Arusha).
