Machame Route

While Marangu used to be the most popular route on the mountain, Machame Route has taken over this title.  As such, it sees high traffic volume, particularly in high season.  An incredibly scenic forest route that is decent for acclimatization, Machame is great for the fit social climber.  The route legs are a little steeper and longer than Marangu, Lemosho and Rongai.

Machame can be done in 7 or 8 days.

Sample Route (7 Days):

The Crater Camp Supplement is available upon special request.  This adds one day to the route and will only be accommodated on a 7 day itinerary (8 days total on the mountain) for safety reasons.

The Western Breach Alternative finish is available upon specific request.  The sample itinerary listed above will be amended to accommodate.


Pricing is based on the number of climbers in the group and the number of days on the mountain.  Pricing below does not include non-mountain costs such as airport transfers and lodging.  Those costs can be found by clicking here.
