Overview
Machame route, also known as “the Whiskey Route”, offers a wide variety of views, landscapes and experiences. Machame is considered one of the better routes for acclimatization as it follows the mountaineering code of hike high and sleep low. The starting point of the route, Machame Gate, is only a 1 hour minute drive from Moshi town. Located on the southern slope of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Machame Gate will lead you to the top along the exciting footpath which starts at the tropical forest, then runs through all the climate zones and finishes with the Arctic desert in the summit area.

Camps along the trek are favorably located for smooth and gradual acclimatization transition process. On the 3rd day Machame Route converges with Lemosho and Umbwe at Barranco camp.

You can choose between a six or seven-day climb. The latter one is highly preferred for better acclimatization transition.

Me and my wife spend our honeymoon on safari (Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire and Manyara) with Shiri Adventures and I can say that it was the best experience! We didn't have a single complaint. From communication with mr. Linus, who responded quickly to all our questions and concerns (via WhatsApp or email), to the entire organization of Safari, transfers to airport, luxury lodges in national parks… Also, on our safari jeep they put our wedding photo - nice personal touch :) Our guide (mr. Ibra) was an exceptional at finding animals that we could see from a distance of only a few meters! He taught us about animals, their behavior and the habitats they live in, about the natives Maasai (which we also visited), about land Africa and Tanzania... Really experienced guide! We would recommend Shiri Adventures 10/10. These guys are on another level! :)

My husband and I went on a honeymoon to a safari with Shiri adventures. We did a 4 day safari tour (Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Manyara) and it was amazing. Firstly, I would like to mention communication with Linus. He always responded quickly and made our safari experience unforgettable. I would also like to mention our safari guide Ibra, who is just an expert. He has a sharp eye for all the animals, and also knows everything regarding safari life. We saw the big 5, which tells how good, experienced and patient was our guide. We also visited a Maasai village and camped in a lodge in the middle of Serengeti. Everything was well organized and the food was amazing. Thank you Linus and Shiri adventures for making our honeymoon so amazing. We will never forget it! 🤗

This was a wonderful safari experience, with just the right balance of adventure and comfort. We went for a week through Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, and Lake Manyara. Our guide, Lawrence, was brimming with local knowledge, and patiently indulged every request to pull forward. No back, a little. Just another minute... so we could get the ideal view of the next fantastic wildlife that he'd pointed out (his animal spotting skill is superb). Ngorongoro is an amazing mixing pot of all kinds of animals and ecosystems in such a small area, while the sprawl of Serengeti boggles the mind. And each day ended with a lovely lodge or campsite, with delicious meals prepared by proactive staff. Waking up in the middle of the night to a family of lions passing through was an altogether unexpected highlight. Not to worry; we were safe and sound inside, the entire time;) Thank you so much, Lawrence our guide, and Linus the owner, for a fantastic first safari, and introduction to the rich wonders of Africa!

A safari in Tanzania is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so you want to make sure you do it properly. Fortunately our tour with Shiri was perfect, including the lodgings as well as our guide Lau who was very experienced, knowledgeable and friendly and made sure we saw lots of animals. The hospitality from Linus - the owner - was exceptional and he was always available over WhatsApp to answer any questions very promptly. It can be overwhelming with hundreds of tour companies to choose from but I would 100% recommend Shiri!
