The most popular route on Kilimanjaro and not without good reason.
The Machame Route begins in the south through the humid rainforest with spectacularly rewarding climb up to the Shira Plateau, where sunset over the jagged features of Johnsell Point and Klute Peak provides fantastic photo opportunities.
The infamous Barranco Wall, a steep cliff with rocky outcrops makes for a tough but interesting scramble, before the route continues on to summit base camp at Barafu. You will see the sunrise over Mawenzi peak on summit day from Stella Point and the breath-taking views as Heim. Kersten, Decken and Rebmann glaciers come in to light. How do I join Team A?
