Video: Climbing Kilimanjaro's Machame Route

Ever wanted to climb Kilimanjaro and didn't know what to expect? Perhaps you've already been there and done that, but are feeling a bit nostalgic for the mountain? This video can help in either case. it is a 4.5 minute clip that takes viewers up the Machame Route, one of the more popular ways of reaching the summit. Along the way, you'll get a good sense of the trail and the obstacles faced along the path, while taking in some of the amazing views that Kili provides.

Over the past few years, the number of bookings to climb Kilimanjaro has actually decreased in no small part thanks to unfounded fears following the ebola outbreak in West Africa. Because of this, you can currently visit the mountain and experience smaller crowds. That isn't expected to last forever, so if you've ever wanted to go to the Roof of Africa, now just might be the time. Of course, I'd recommend making that climb with my friends at Tusker Trail. There simply isn't anyone one operating on the mountain that does it better.

Thanks for the video and info about the guides. We hope to do it in 2018, so I may have more questions for you.
