About this tour

Machame is another popular route where you will have to camp through all of the nights. (There are not huts, but there are public toilets people can use) This 7 day trek will give you one day to acclimatize and will give you a better chance to get to the summit.

The route changes its atmosphere each day you ascend. You will definitely enjoy all of the change you will see along the way.

The last day will be the toughest. Be ready :)

  • Paul Shayo & Staff were an amazing choice to Climb Kili with and I couldn't have been happier! They are really willing to go the extra mile, whether that be by being flexible with dates, picking you up and taking you to the airport, or providing gear that you don't have for your climb. Super nice guys, very knowledgeable, great food and service, and professional. Mwenge!!!
