Mount Kilimanjaro Expedition

21st - 29th August 2023

Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa (5895m/19,340′) and is situated on the northern Tanzanian border, the classic photograph being taken from Amboseli National Park in southern Kenya. We will ascend the mountain via the Machame Route which rises from the Tanzanian side of the mountain and is arguably the most spectacular and beautiful of all the routes on Kilimanjaro. The route is challenging but does not require any technical climbing and should be within the compass of any moderately fit person who has done sufficient training.

August 22: Machame Gate to Machame Camp
