RouteThe Machame Route is highly recommended for three main reasons:
- The Machame route has a higher success rate as the final ascent is via Stella Point which is much closer to Uhuru peak
- The alternative Marangu route is very crowded and porters have a history of being left out in the cold at night time when room needs to be taken for over bookings from companies.
- The Machame route is more scenic – if people are going to make a once in a lifetime commitment to climb the highest freestanding mountain in the world, they might as well enjoy as much of the mountain as possible. The Machame route ascends and descends on different routes to ensure you see as much of Kilimanjaro as possible. Highlights include: afromontane forest, Shira plateau, glacial valleys and alpine desert, views of Mawenzi, ascent of Kibo and possible views of Kibo caldera and ash pit.

Airfare, Travel Insurance, and Immunizations
Depending on when you book and your flight preferences, airfare will cost anywhere between $1,800 - $2,500. You should also allocate $600 for immunizations, malaria medicine, and your visa. Travel Insurance is also an important security measure that Adventure International strongly advises you purchase. For recommendations you can review Adventure International's travel insurance page. Travel Insurance is there to cover things that Adventure International cannot - repatriation, costs of things like helicopters, trip cancellation, and so on. Please do not rely on automatic cover from credit cards, read the small print, and if you need any help, email the Adventure International team.
