Travel and trek the Machame route of Kilimanjaro along with a team; including a professional guide who has summited the mountain 200+ times, a medical technician and fellow trekkers with likeminded qualities Your experience will be not only be a physical challenge, but an emotional and very personal individual discovery.

About me: I have always found that being out in nature, atop a mountain, is a very humbling experience. I like to travel and trek with like-minded individuals, and although I feel the journey is in itself a personal experience, I enjoy connecting with others who seek adventure, push personal limits and go beyond what they thought possible. I invite you to join this trip to enjoy, not only the amazing views along the way, but rather looking within oneself to understand that mindset is truly everything... Let's climb together!

Through the villages of Machame which is located on the lower slopes of the mountain. After reaching Machame gate there will be a registration; before beginning the trek, starting the journey off through the rainforest up until we reach Machame Campsite for dinner and overnight stay. This will be approx 5-7 hours of hiking, starting off at 1800M elevation from Machame gate to 3000M for our first night on route. Day 3 After breakfast we depart the glades of the rain forest and continue on an ascending path crossing the little valley walking along a steep rocky ridge, covered with heather and Moorland, until the ridge ends. The route now turns west onto a river gorge. Dinner and overnight at the Shira campsite. Machame Campsite 3000M to Shira Campsite 3840M. We will hike for approx 7km over 4-5 hours.

Shortly after reaching the second junction which brings us near to Arrow Glacier at an altitude of 4600M, descending downhill to Barranco campsite at altitude of 3950M. *Although we will be ending the day at the same elevation that we started at, this day is very important for acclimatization and it will help prepare us for the push to the summit. The distance we will travel will be approx 11km over 6-7 hours. Day 5 Barranco Camp to Karanga Camp Day 6 Breakfast at Karanga Camp before we complete our ascent to the base at Barafu campsite and hit the junction which connects with Mweka Trail after this point we only have 15-20Minutes to complete your hiking day.

Lunch will be served at this point followed by afternoon leisure, rest, meditation and reflection. We will enjoy and early dinner, and prepare for the summit session which takes place at midnight. The two peaks of Mawenzi and Kibo are visible from this campsite.. Day 7 We start the day early at 12am; donning appropriate layers of the clothing ready to begin the final push to the summit. We will head in a northwesterly direction and ascend through heavy scree towards Stella Point on the crater rim at 5,747M. This will be the most mentally and physically challenging portion of our trek. At Stella we will have a short rest and be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise. From Stella Point we have one hour to reach the summit. At Uhuru Peak, we have reached the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa! From the summit, after Uhuru Peak descent we continue straight downhill to Mweka Hut campsite, taking a short rest at Barafu for lunch before departing to mweka campsite situated in the upper forest. Our last dinner on the mountain will be served later followed by a well-earned sleep. Distance over 21km and hiking time between 11-12 hours. Day 8 After our last breakfast on the mountain, we will leave mweka camp, descending downhill via rainforest to Mweka gate at lower elevations. Distance will be approx 10km over 3-4 hours.
