Day 1 (Masai Mara)

Arrive before lunch for relaxation and meals, afternoon game drives allow spotting of the unrivalled wildlife in the park. Dinner and overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge or equivalent.
The Machame route that is used for this hike, is the most beautiful and scenic route (especially at the traverse of the Western Breach) for trailing up Mountain Kilimanjaro. It is more challenging than the Marangu route because it involves longer, exhausting and steeper walks, with the summit night being an hour shorter and much quieter and offers only tent accommodations making this route most preferred by slightly more adventurous hikers. Compared to the Umbwe route, the Machame route involves a gradual ascent.
