Shumba Safaris serves as an adventure of confidence that which is proudly aimed at clientele satisfaction on connecting Africa to explore with our esteemed clients. This is a 7 days, 4 nights hike plus 2 night hotel accommodation where we acclimatize and have our briefing about upcoming hiking tour, then also on our last day after the tour we will relax in the hotel for cool down before we take our flight back home. The Machame route is our most popular and successful route leading to the summit of Kilimanjaro. Hikers will sleep in tents which are carried up the mountain by porters. Our selected route is very scenic and beautiful route, which can be completed in 6 days. The key to the success of the Machame route is its topography, allowing hikers to climb high and sleep low, helping towards better acclimatization. There are however two drawbacks on this route, thus firstly hikers will need to pass an area just before the Shira ridge and hike the Barranco Wall, both of which are physically demanding and also present a potential problem for hikers with a fear of heights. Second fact relates to the route’s high success rate, compounded by the understanding that other routes join the Machame route from day 3 onwards, therefore higher numbers of hikers can be encountered on this route. Afterward reaching the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and when it`s time to descend, we will utilize Mweka route.
