Kilimanjaro Machame Route 7 Days

By Jaribu Africa Adventures
Considered to be the most beautiful and scenic of the various routes up Mount Kilimanjaro, the Machame Route is appropriate for more adventurous hikers who wish for a more physically demanding climb than Marangu or Rongai can offer. Machame is presently the most popular route despite its higher degree of difficulty, so you can expect to not be the only one climbing. You can choose to complete this route in either six days or seven days.

          Many thanks to Jaribu Africa Adventures.
          Kisali led a superb expedition. I heartily endorse Africa Adventures by Jaribu. We discovered that in order to return home, we required Covid testing. Kisali set up our testing and provided us with the outcomes. Many thanks to Jaribu Africa Adventures and Kisali.

          The 5 days machame trail was amazing. Jaribu Africa Adventures took great care of us. The mountain itself is full of beauty and our guides and Samuel did everything to make us comfortable, they also gave us the encouragement we needed to reach the summit.

          As I reflect on our 8-day adventure with Jaribu Africa Adventures, I'm still pinching myself to believe we actually summitted Mount Kilimanjaro all of us, on the Roof of Africa! My 14 friends and I went on an unforgettable journey, and I'm thrilled to share our remarkable experience with you.

          I am very happy to go on safari with them. I was very happy to see that their arrangements are very good and the safari guide Samuel is very good. And he has helped us a lot in all matters, he knows a lot of unknown information. He is very knowledgeable, I will book Jaribu Africa Adventures next time instead of booking a safari from anywhere else. Thanks to everyone and Jaribu Africa Adventures.

          The safari was amazing
          The actual safari was amazing. Numerous bird species, the Big Five, and even a cheetah hunt were all visible to us! Top-notch lodging that combined luxury with a true safari experience was provided by Jaribu. Their attention to environmentally responsible procedures made sure that our adventure was not only fun but also sustainable, which I liked.

          Very Good tour
          I recently had the privilege of hiking Mount Kilimanjaro with Jaribu Africa Adventures, and it was a truly unforgettable experience. Our guide, Stephen, was exceptional—his knowledge of the mountain, professionalism, and genuine passion for what he does made all the difference. From the very start, the team demonstrated an impressive level of organization and care.

          The equipment provided was top-notch, and the meals were delicious and nourishing, which was crucial for maintaining energy on such a demanding climb.

          A Majestic Climb of Conquering Kilimanjaro's Lemosho Route with Jaribu Africa
          Setting foot on an 8-day trek through the awe-inspiring landscapes of Kilimanjaro's Lemosho route with Jaribu Africa, was an epic adventure that will forever be etched in our memories. From the very first inquiry to the triumphant summit moment, every aspect of the journey was orchestrated with precision and care. The journey began with seamless booking interactions with Joseph. His prompt responses instilled confidence in our choice of expedition. As we set out from Arusha town towards the Lemosho gate, excitement mingled with anticipation, and the scenic drive only heightened our sense of adventure. From the onset, our guide, Goodluck, proved to be not only knowledgeable but also incredibly inspiring. With his leadership, we traversed through diverse terrains, each step bringing us closer to the summit. Goodluck's expertise was evident as he led us through each day's challenges, ensuring our safety and morale remained high. The camaraderie among the nine of us grew stronger with every stride, as we marveled at the beauty of Kilimanjaro unfolding before us. The porters, with their infectious enthusiasm and melodious morning songs, added a touch of joy to each campsite. And the cook, with his culinary mastery, treated us to delicious hot meals that rejuvenated our spirits after a day's trek. One of the highlights of the expedition was the provision of personal flush toilets, and the big walk-in mess tent where we sat comfortably while having our meals, a testament to the attention to detail provided by Jaribu Africa. This thoughtful gesture not only ensured comfort but also enhanced our overall experience. As we approached the seventh day, fatigue began to set in, yet our determination remained unwavering. Rising early to go onto the final push towards the summit, we were greeted by the sight of a magnificent full moon illuminating our path. With the moonlight casting an ethereal glow on the glaciers, we pressed on, fueled by sheer willpower and the knowledge that our goal was within reach. And then, as we stood atop the summit, surrounded by breathtaking vistas and a sense of accomplishment, it was clear that every step of the journey had been worth it. Thanks to the unwavering support of Goodluck, the exceptional service provided by Jaribu Africa, and the camaraderie of friends, our Kilimanjaro trek was nothing short of extraordinary—a journey of a lifetime that will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

          My unforgettable Safari trip to Serengeti with Jaribu Africa
          Tanzania stole my breath away. It was like stepping into a wildlife documentary...but way, way better! 5 days on safari with Jaribu Africa, and I'm still buzzing. Imagine this: elephants blocking the dusty road, a pride of lions napping in the golden savannah, and a mama cheetah on the hunt, her spots flashing in the sunlight. We saw it all, thanks to our incredible guide Julius who knew exactly where to find the coolest creatures. We explored Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, and the endless plains of the Serengeti. Each park had its own vibe, its own breathtaking beauty. Jaribu Africa totally deserves a shout-out. They made everything smooth sailing, from comfy rides to delicious meals (seriously, those Tanzanian stews!). We got amazing wildlife sightings. If you're dreaming of an African adventure, stop dreaming and book it! Tanzania won't disappoint, and with Jaribu Africa, it'll be an unforgettable experience.

          An amazing few days seeing the wildlife of Africa
          Our Safari was amazing. I simply can’t say enough about how much of a gentleman and great company that our driver Sam was to us. We had an amazing time and his company just made the whole experience a dream. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience all the way around. Again, Sam made it very special with his kindness, patience, and attention to detail. We would strongly recommend Jaribu Safaris…. And most certainly, you should request Sam as your driver.

          Guides went above and beyond
          We booked this trip direct with Jaribu after a friend’s recommendation. Everything went smoothly from airport pick up, hotels to trek. The actual trek was tougher than we had expected as despite being fit only one of our party had experienced altitude before. Two of us suffered with mild altitude sickness but the advice and support of the guides kept us safe at all times and ensured that we summitted. Mathew and Ayumi the guides were so patient and helpful. The porters were polite and friendly and Jeff , the cook produced food which would have been top class even under normal conditions. It was amazing to reach the summit at sunrise. Don’t do this trip if you’re not prepared to rough it as conditions on the mountain are hard but if you’re looking for a good company I would totally recommend Jaribu.

          Amazing safari experience
          We did a 7 Day Luxury Safari. Joseph at Jaribu Africa Adventures made all the arrangements. He was very responsive to our questions, concerns and requests. The information he gave us was all very helpful. Our trip was wonderful. It was everything we believed it would be. We did safari in Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Our guide/driver Julius did a wonderful job. He was very knowledgeable about the Animals, birds, plants, ecology, ecosystems, history and so much more. He has a real understanding for the area and love for his country. The accommodations Joseph made for us were amazing. Everyone was friendly, helpful and very good at their jobs. Very professional. The tip recommendations we received should be twice what was listed. Very hardworking people.

        Lots of updates were provided in the lead up to the trip and my friend and I were taken care of from when we arrived in Kilimanjaro until we flew back to Japan.

        Getting to Uhuru peak base was not easy but definitely worth it and I made new lifelong friends along the way. Come on this trip and achieve the goal of reaching the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and seeing the amazing views of the region.

        I would definitely recommend going with Jaribu Africa Adventures to hike Mount Kilimanjaro!
