Greg has climbed Kilimanjaro three times with Adventures Within Reach and finally reached his goal of the summit on this last trip! Amazing job, Greg and congratulations on reaching the summit- we are all absolutely inspired by your personal perseverance and drive. Keep crushing!
Want to explore the rooftop of the African continent like Greg? Check out our Machame Group Departures!
If Marangu is the “Coca Cola” route, then the Machame Route is the “Whiskey” route. It is the second most popular and one of the most scenic routes on the mountain. All climbers sleep in tents (tents are included) and meals are served in a dinner tent or on a blanket outside.
It is done over 7 days, so acclimatization is easier, and the success rate is fairly high. It is for physically fit people with some hiking experience. Descent is down the Mweka trail staying at the Mweka or Millenium camp the final night on the mountain.
