Kilimanjaro is an inactive volcano in Tanzania, East Africa. At 5895 metres above sea level, It is the highest peak in Africa and is also the tallest freestanding mountain in the world.
There are numerous trekking routes to ascend the mountain but the Machame route is one of the most scenic routes and also has one of the highest success rates as a result of the positioning of the campsites and acclimatisation profile. The route passes through numerous climates over seven days – arable, rainforest, moorland, alpine desert, and finally, arctic conditions near the summit.
The trek takes place over seven days and is fully supported by an experienced team of local guides, porters and cooks, as well as at least one UK-based More Adventure leader. Each evening you will be camping in some of the most beautiful campsites in the world, with views of the dramatic Kibo Peak, the snowy summit of Kilimanjaro, jaw-dropping glaciers and the vast open plains of the African Savannah below.
