It is not for the faint-hearted – this will test you to your limits, mentally as well as physically. The main problems encountered are altitude sickness, which can be countered by use of medicines, and lack of oxygen. Good preparation and advice, as well as good guides on the mountain, have given us an over 95% success rate (the average is 60%) . Any reasonably fit person who enjoys walking can reach the summit of Kilimanjaro.
Machame Route is one of the most scenic routes up the mountain. After Umbwe Route, this is probably the most beautiful route by which to ascend.
All your supplies and camping equipment are portered up for you (tents, 20 – 25mm compressed foam sleeping mats, awnings, stools, lights, etc) and your meals are prepared. Your personal baggage limit is 12kg for the climb.

Each trip is led by a senior guide, with other guides in a ratio of approximately one guide per 2 or 3 climbers. If you are a bit slower than the rest or get ill and have to descend, a guide will always be with you.
