Mt Kilimanjaro ~ Tanzania ~ East Africa

Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world and one of the world’s greatest natural wonders: a snow-covered mountain on the equator, an ocean of green forest surrounded by dry savannah. It is the highest mountain in Africa, standing at 5,895m and technically the easiest to climb of the Seven Summits.

Climbing Kilimanjaro is like walking from the equator to the North Pole in a week, providing dramatic changes in vegetation and animal life day by day. Kilimanjaro is also a sky island, where high altitudes have created habitat for strange and unique life forms found only on a few other peaks on the planet.

Although it is a non-technical climb what makes this trek challenging is the high altitude. You don’t need ropes or special mountaineering gear, or even any previous mountain climbing experience.  A combination of good fitness, determination and a sense of adventure makes this trek an achievable and life-changing journey!

Kilimanjaro inspires transformation. It is a once in a lifetime journey!

When you climb Kilimanjaro, with other women and stand on the rooftop of Africa, you see the world in a totally different way. Things that once seemed impossible suddenly appear achievable!

The summit is called Uhuru Peak – Uhuru is the Swahili word for “Freedom.”

Expect to be challenged, changed and inspired as we begin this awesome adventure! 

Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro was an amazing adventure that really pushed me out of my comfort zone. An amazing experience shared with some great women from all over the world. Fiona.C

Machame Route

  • One of the most popular trekking routes due to its high success rate
  • Great for acclimatisation as it allows climbers to “walk high, sleep low”
  • A challenging trek with stunning scenery over five amazing climatic zones.

The Machame route is a highly recommended route to climb Kilimanjaro as it offers great acclimatisation, allowing the climber to “walk high, sleep low”, and as a result enjoys one of the highest summit success rates of all the routes on Mt Kilimanjaro.

It goes by the nickname of “The Whisky route” although no whisky is available! 

The Machame route approaches from the southwest passing through Kilimanjaro’s five diverse climatic zones with stunning views to the west across the Shira Plateau where it joins the Lemosho/Shira route on day 3. It then continues on to the magnificent Lava Tower, followed by the Great Barranco Wall and Kilimanjaro’s Southern Icefield. We ensure that our porter team arrive into the designated campsites early so your tent will be set up and ready for your arrival, together with a nice hot drink & food prepared by our team cook. Although you can climb Kilimanjaro over 6 days via the Machame route we recommend taking 7 days. The reason being is this route offers much better acclimatisation and allows the pre-summit day to be split into two which means that you have two shorter days trekking prior to your summit ascent. This really helps and has proved a great success and a much more enjoyable way to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
