welcome to


The Machame Route on Kilimanjaro is a moderately difficult trail but very doable even for first-time backpackers with little to no altitude experience. It is a seven-day camping route that allows for excellent acclimatization and particularly diverse scenery.

The entire climb up and down is approximately 62 km from gate to gate. The height gain from the gate to the summit is 4157 meters which is ascended over six days of around 5-7 days of walking each day.

It is considered difficult as it does not offer the same climb height. The longer you take to complete this trail the higher the success rate will be.

Its longer itinerary allows for better acclimatization thus considered as an easier route. 

This tour is offered by Simba Paka Safaris.

What Others Say About Us

I recommend Simba Paka Safaris. We had a great experience at the Maasai Mara with our guide who was extremely knowledgeable and managed to help us see all the animals that we wanted to see. Diana B
I did the 4 day Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru safaris. From start to finish, Simba Paka Tours was professional, reactive, and great at communicating all facets of the trip. I did the mid-range tour and Paul organized my hotels on arrival and departure, transfers, and the best tour guide possible. If you do this tour and you get Johnny Jackson as a guide, you will be very lucky. Hellen W
Amazing Safari! We did a Safari with Paul and his staff, 5 days in Masai Mara. It was a wonderful experience, that allowed us to see all the Big Five thanks to our guide's ability! Paul is very gentle and professional. I recommend it very much for a unique experience. Sabina F
Mr. Paul is a very friendly and just a gentlemen person. We did a 7-day Kenya safari and we not only saw the big 5. Following advice from Paul from Simba Paka Safaris we went to the following national parks; Nakuru, Masai Mara, Amboseli, and Lake Naivasha. Bhagwan S
We did a 7-day Safari from Masai Mara over Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha to Amboseli. First of all, our driver/guide Francis was wonderful! He was super engaged, always attentive, and made sure we got the best possible views and pictures. When we asked for something, he immediately ensured it was sorted out. Max F
