The Machame Route is also called a Whiskey Route and one of the challenging routes during Mount Kilimanjaro Hike. It has a success rate of 70% to the summit. The trail here is steeper crossing the valleys and ridges. You will also need to cross the Barranco wall which is steeper and need one and a half hour to hike it.
Did you know, the Machame Route Success Rate is quite high and the acclimatization it provides is also great! The Kilimanjaro Machame Route offers a longer and steeper hike and covers more ground and included more ups and downs. The route may tire you and consume more energy. Despite this, we recommend it due to the acclimatization it offers.

— Prepare a perfect playlist of your favorite songs to listen while climbing the summit.
— Try to stay positive even when the journey seems impossible as climbing can be physically and mentally challenging.
— Be sure to wear your hiking boots before your adventure to Kilimanjaro to avoid blisters.
— Be sure to pack a generous supply of wet wipes and be prepared not to shower for a week.
— To reduce the symptoms of altitude sickness, you must consume as much water as physically possible.
— You should also be mentally prepared for case of altitude sickness. Altitude sickness occurs on the third day of your hike; therefore, it is best to allow extra time in your itinerary where possible.
— We suggest you to add an extra night to your journey to reduce the impact of altitude sickness.
— Try to spend a few weekends camping to get familiar with using limited facilities so that it mentally prepares for the Kilimanjaro climbing and helps you overcome any small barriers you might encounter.

We had a great experience with Suricata Safaris!! It was all very comfortable since they took care of all the transportation. As soon as we arrived, Hilary came to our accommodation to explain what our itinerary was going to be for the next few days. It is very expressive and pleasant. We started the safari with Frederic as our guide.
We are a group of six friends, we chose the 5-day safari with Suricata Safari on the recommendation of a friend who did the same last year, and of course it was a great choice. The route of the trip was Tarangire-Manyara-Serengeti-Ngorongoro. In short, an incredible experience, good value for money and above all a ten to Rocky. One hundred percent recommended!
We chose this company based on TripAdvisor reviews and we couldn't have made a better choice! From the first moment Hilary took great care of us, making sure that everything was perfect. The Florid guide is very attentive and he tried to make us see as many animals as possible; Chef Chaz cooks amazing!! Suricata Safaris is undoubtedly the best option!
We did a complete search and compared with many companies and Suricata seemed to us the best option, without a doubt a GREAT SUCCESS. We had Florid as a guide, who made an effort to find all the possible animals, apart from making us a super pleasant and fun stay.
