ROUTE INFORMATION

One of the most popular routes on Mount Kilimanjaro, and for good reason: the Machame Route scenery is amazing and summit success rates on the 7-day trek are over 90%!
The trek begins at the Machame Gate, located at the southern base of the mountain, within its lush, fertile rainforest. The route heads toward the Shira Plateau, before circling along the southern circuit halfway around the mountain.
The approach to the summit is made from the south-east, and the descent follows the Mweka trail. The Machame Route is approximately 62 km/ 37 miles from gate to gate. It is designed for physically fit people with some hiking experience

ETHICAL KILIMANJARO CLIMBS

We are doing ethical climbs and responsible Trekking; we believe the tourism industry has an obligation and a great opportunity to protect the world‟s natural habitats, cultural heritage sites and communities. We actively promote environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

We are not doing cheap Climb, cheap climb means we are doing tourism while exploiting our Porters who are the ones who make Kilimanjaro trek possible for the vast majority of climbers, and who do all the heavy lifting. Fair and ethical treatment of our porters (crew) is one of the important priorities of Eco-Africa Climbing when we do climb.

Eco-Africa Climbing has begun the qualification process to become a Partner with the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP). Please contact (info@kiliporters.org) to confirm this.

KPAP raises public awareness regarding the proper treatment of porters on Kilimanjaro and assists climbing companies with implementing procedures that ensure fair and ethical treatment of their porters.
Every of our climb is audited by KPAP to ensure crew members are provided proper salaries, tips, food, equipment and sleeping conditions.
