Experience the splendour of Kili with an extra day on your trek to acclimatize to the summit of Africa's highest peak. Considered by many to be the most scenic path to the summit, the Machame boasts different routes to the summit and back. Known as the "Whiskey Route" because of the tougher challenge it poses, this path leads you through magnificent forests before traversing a ridge leading through moorland to the Shira Plateau. It offers beautiful scenery beneath the glaciated precipices of the southern ice fields before summiting from the higher Barafu Camp. Camp along the route with support from local guides and porters. As a world leader in Kili treks, we'll take you to new heights in adventure!
