Kilimanjaro Machame Route 9 Days Total, 7 Days 6 Nights on the mountain

Point to remember, on Triple M Safaris most of our expedition on Kilimanjaro you will be going to the summit during the day and not During the Night. This will give you more advantage of success.

It is an option to stay at the Hotel one day extra for acclimatization on the slopes of mount Meru for the day walk up to 6800ft, then back to the hotel in Arusha for more preparation before the Kilimanjaro trek at the next day.

Machame is a beautiful 6 nights 7 days route following the Machame and Barranco Valleys before making a direct ascent to the Kibo Summit. Only 5 nights on the mountain makes acclimatization more difficult, it helps to have spent two nights at the hotel in Arusha at 3200ft , this will make a huge different on your trek on Kilimanjaro. This route traverses under the massive southern glaciers of the mountain offering stunning views of the Southern Ice Fields. The final ascent is up and down the same trail so it has the great advantage of allowing everyone to climb as high as they can before descending.

Day 1: Pre- Trip briefing and equipment check. Our guide will meet you anywhere within an hour of Arusha for the briefing and equipment check. He will arrange with you the departure time for the next day morning start of your Kilimananjaro climb. We are also happy to help you with your hotel reservations and hotel transfers.
