The Machame route is the most popular on the mountain and not without good reason. Acclimatization allowance combined with varied topography and features along the way makes it one of the most interesting ascents of Mount Kilimanjaro.Â

We climb to the Shira Plateau, then traverse the mountain beneath Kilimanjaro’s Southern Icefield, before summiting from Barafu Hut. The total time on the mountain is 6 days.

This combination of Kilimanjaro Climb and Wildlife Safari, known as the taste of Tanzania Safari adventure, is perfect for travelers who want to experience northern circuit wildlife in a limited time. Despite its short duration, this Tanzania Safari Package guarantees unforgettable memories. In just 6 days after climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, you will visit Tarangire National Park, is characterized by diverse vegetation such as baobab trees, sausage trees, acacia trees, the Serengeti with its vast plains and abundant wildlife, and the Ngorongoro Crater, where you can complete your sightings of the ‘Big 5’ with the highly endangered black rhino.
