About
Nicknamed the "Whiskey" route because the route is popularized as somewhat difficult and more expensive than Marangu route. On an overall comparison of the routes to scale Kilimanjaro, this is one of the best routes to take, both in terms of acclimatization and cost. The Machame route is scenically beautiful and varied. However, due to its popularity there are increased numbers of trekkers, it loses some of its splendour. The Machame route approaches the summit from the southwest and descends using the Mweka route, rewarding climbers with views of the expansive Shira Plateau, an optional scramble up Lava Tower, a climb up the Great Barranco wall, and a traverse underneath Kilimanjaro’s southern ice field. Challenging trek with stunning scenery through 5 diverse climatic zones. Good opportunity to split pre-summit day climb to leave climbers rested before summiting.

The 7 day Machame route trek with Monkey Adventures was truly outstanding from start to finish. This company is well organised and professional in every respect, from the first email communication, through to the final farewell. I really cannot speak highly enough of the attention to detail and professionalism of each aspect, and of each of their highly experienced and friendly team members.

The trek itself was so rewarding, thanks to Dixon and his assistant guides Stephen and Elly. Dixon is such a wealth of knowledge, he knows the mountain inside out and clearly has the respect of all the team members. We felt we were in great hands the entire time. Dixon and his assistant guides (especially Elly who guided us to the summit) were so friendly, encouraging, and they really put safety first at every turn. Truly world class.

As for the camp experience, we ate so well thanks to Peter the chef. His food was varied, delicious (seriously restaurant quality) and above all nutritious. I was so happy to see a variety of vegetables at every lunch and dinner!

And after a tiring, but rewarding successful summit, we came back to the office for a debriefing and feedback session. This is truly a company that has considered the client experience from start to finish. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering climbing Kilimanjaro, you will not regret it.

Asante sana to the entire Monkey Adventures team!

Amazing experience. We went on this trip from 8th of October to 23rd and really want to share our experience with you, because everything was well organized from the arrival to the drop off. Even before the trip we had very fast and good communication about the planning of the trip and the challenge with the payment. Because we decided very short on our stay in Tanzania to do this trip, it was to late to do bank / creditcard booking. It was made possible to pay the whole trip at arrival (make sure USD cash printed after 2009).

At the airport we were picked up by two very friendly Monkey Adventure guides (easily to spot because they are wearing Monkey Adventure polo's and driving a Monkey Adventure van :) ). If you can't find them, you have received prior to arrival a local phone number you can call to help you out, or via whatsapp. We got dropped of at our hotel for the night. Next day we were picked up again, now by our guide for the hike and someone from the office. After the paperwork we set off to the Machame gate to meet our crew. They were in one word, fantastic! Other than that, very enthusiastic, friendly, helpful and well organized. They made the trip. The food was also fantastic, much more and better than expected.

We were pretty lucky with the weather and had great views from the top, which all four of our group reached. This trip has created a life long memory and we can very much recommend this trip and definitely the organization.

One small tip for the organization. Monkey Adventure has as we experienced different organizational parts. The Kili part is different from the Safari part. For us we thought with discussing the itinerary for the whole trip (Kil and Safari) with one party. Normally probably not a problem, but as we were on the Kili with Monkey Adventure the first week (largely without internet of course) we've received questions about confirmation on the safari of the second week from Monkey. We asked about this at the Monkey office in Moshi (Kili part) and were assured it was arranged. However, next morning, we found out it was not entirely. This being said, in 1 hour all our accommodations and safari trip were re-confirmed and our guide for the three days picked us up! The tip would be to give all Monkey Adventure parts some insights in the overall booking, for even better support.

Despite this small hick-up, it has been an absolute pleasure to book with this organization and experience this fantastic country.

I had an unforgettable experience hiking Kili via the Machame route. I chose 7days due to a higher success rate but being the only trekker in the group and doing quite well, I challenged myself and tried to shave one day off. The team was extremely supportive, I was treated like a queen. My guide, Liver, was such a great guide! I let him set the pace and with his “pole pole” he was the main reason I got to the summit in one piece. He even gave me his water when my camelback froze way sooner than I had anticipated! And the team of porters - where to even start. They deserve all the credit. I wonder what the success rate would be if every tourist had to bring his/her gear, sleeping/cooking supplies, and food. These young men are incredible - strong, fast, positive. I’d have never made it without their help. Also, food - it was fantastic! Having a warm dinner made all the difference and gave me the energy to keep going. The chef always made way more food than I could possibly eat, and the meals always tasted so so good. What an experience I had. Thank you for treating me like a queen.

honestly speaking, before booking with monkey adventures I was a bit skeptical, since they offer one of the lowest prices to trekk Kilimanjaro. But I trusted the good reviews they had and I wasn't disappointed at all!

Literally from bottom to top, the service was great. I received straight and quick responses regarding all questions prior the trekk.

But especially the crew for Kilimanjaro was amazing, they did anything within their powers to support on the trekk. it was a very authentic crew and a heartwarming experience. I'd like to thank Emmanuele and his team again for making the summit possible. Also special thanks to Chris for the great organization and the "introduction" to Moshi.

The only thing that might be slightly negative, was the mediocre dining tent. (had a few minor holes) But it was more than fine to eat in.

Thanks again for "carrying" us to the top

First of all, we have to mention that the communication regarding the organization of the trip was the best, we got quick answers to everything we needed.
All the crew that came with us on the mountain was amazing, great people. The guides, Brigthon and Allen really helped us to reach the summit. They knew exactly when and how to help us.
Second thing, the cook was really good, all the food he made was delicious. We didn’t expect to eat this much on the mountain.
We strongly recommend this company, especially this crew. We couldn’t have done it without them. Asante sana!

Had to go back on day 4 of my 7 days trek because of altitude sickness so I didn’t make it to the top. My advice to anyone who plans to climb is to have your altitude sickness medicine and also take it. I didn’t take it ( but I had it) as I was told to eat and drink well but you can’t really eat if you’re not well. I met other trekkers there and they were doing great, full of energy cause they started taking diamox from day 1.
One thing I was disappointed with about Monkey Adventures is that they don’t consider other scenarios, like in my case when I had to return earlier, and I had to pay for the hotel stay again. It’s 2 nights in your package: when you arrive before the trek and when you come back. It’s part of the package. But the tour guide couldn’t help me, hotel staff didn’t know as no one communicated it to them so I had to pay extra on my return.
I wanna thank all those amazing guys who carried my stuff, cooked delicious food ( it’s such a talent to cook in those conditions!) , they are true heroes, especially my waiter Hassan, amazingly kind and went out of his way to make me feel comfortable, bless your heart!

I completed this trek as the only tourist. My guide Jonathan was outstanding. Set a very manageable pace, was very knowledgeable about all things Kilimanjaro and kept such a positive attitude and presence throughout the entire trek. The food along the way was also incredible given where we were - my chef/back-up guide Chicks was obviously very skilled as well. The other porters Joel, Lawrence, Gabriel and Kelvin were very appreciated as well, getting the campsite disassembled and set-up each day before I'd even arrived.
Overall I couldn't have asked for a better crew to help me accomplish such an amazing journey to the summit!

The communication during booking was excellent (rapid and detailed). Thanks Lima!
The team who came with us on the journey was great. They pampered us and we literally had nothing else to do but hike, eat and relax. What a luxury hiking experience!
Our guides, Rama and Charles, were attentive to the need of each member of our group and made the hiking journey a memorable experience.
On summit night the team was even more supportive and their enthusiasm and singing skills kept us moving up until we reached the top.
I highly recommend Monkey Adventures.

I had an amazing time trekking up Kilimanjaro with Monkey Adventures! I felt incredibly well taken care of the entire time, from communication before arriving to optimizing my gear to the actual experience of hiking up the mountain. Mussa was an incredible guide and the rest of the team was fantastic - chef Michael, porter/server Yunis, and porters Denis, Nasib and Emiri all did a great job. I highly recommend Monkey Adventures for all of your Kilimanjaro needs!

I would highly recommend Monkey Adventures and the guides Carlson and Hussain. Not only did their help get us to the top, they were very professional, knowledgeable and sorted everything from the transfer, hotel before and after and everything we needed on the mountain. Any one considering this trek please feel free to email me any questions, and although there are plenty guide companies, you won’t find better than Monkey adventures.
