Machame Extra Acclimatization

The Machame or “Whiskey” route is a popular option on Mount Kilimanjaro. This route offers the good scenic variety of five vegetation zones, the Shira Plateau, to the great Barranco Valley well known for its ancient Giant-Groundsel (Senecio) trees. You will take in the extraordinary views extending hundreds of miles including views of the magnificent southern Ice fields and Mawenzi Peak.  When trekking Machame route, we strongly recommend this 7 day option which offers much better acclimatization - and therefore better summit success rates - than Machame 6 day option.

Client feedback on this route:

Climb: Exceeded expectations. We had K2 as our main guide. Tumaini was his assistant guide. They were fantastic, we couldn't ask more from them. The cook was great, and he had to make an extra effort as two of us are gluten intolerant so he did a great job. From Roddy M, July 2014

Climb: Exceeded Expectations. Agger was awesome. He is knowledgeable, genuine and an all around good guy. Many of the other guides were also helpful and nice to talk with. I liked the opportunity to get to know them. From Harman N, May 2014

Climb:  Exceeded Expectations.  Overall, had an incredible trip. Am so impressed with the level of attention to detail and the care that our group received from SPS. Would not climb Kili with any other group. Incredible guide service, gave us such personalized attention. Really knowledgeable and everyone went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great trek.  Incredible food on the mountain; cannot believe what the chef was able to pull off at such high altitudes.
