Hi, I'm Yusuf

My name is YUSUF NGAINA, married with three kids. I’m a Professional guide with an experience of 20 years in the field, guiding both Safari and Mount Kilimanjaro summits over 200 times and served a thousand couple of clients. I also organize Safaris in North and Southern National Parks in Tanzania, which includes:- Serengeti National Park, Arusha National Park, Lake Manyara,Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, Conservation Area, Ruaha, Selous and Nyerere. In addition, I do private and sharing Tour, organize cultural Tourism with home stays, which is not only giving clients adventure but also engaging with communities which I highly recommend for the young guys. It teaches them to appreciate how lucky they are, thus changing their life in a good way and building their future. This is an experience we have learned from our previous clients since, I have been working with kids from Colorado and life line University from USA. I have been engaging with the local people in the area in all my tours, for them to benefit, increase their income, and also get a chance to respect nature as they acquire knowledge from our Professional guides. The reason why I choose YUSUF Is because we are giving back to the community by supporting them in education, getting solutions while partnering with the journey from USA, building houses and water wells for widows and abandoned women in Lake Eyasi (very remote area in Tanzania). Feel free to visit https://journeysofsolutions.org/ to see what we do with the community. I am glad to be part of Go Africa platform.

Overview

The Machame route, also referred to as the Whiskey route, is one of the most popular routes on Kilimanjaro and a favorite for us. Machame route is one of the highest summit success rates given the topography and nature of the route which allows climbers to “trek high & sleep low” hence making it a more favorable route for acclimatization. This route offers some of the most spectacular scenery while on the mountain. The Machame route starts in the south west side of the mountain and proceeds steeply north, traversing the Shira plateau and eventually joining the Shira and Lemosho routes just after the Shira cave camp. The Machame route can be done in minimum 6 days but a 7 day trek is recommended to allow climbers been well rested and acclimatized before making the final ascent to the summit.

Pick Up Point

Day 1 of Tour

 

Day 1: Machame Gate (1790m) to Machame Camp (3010m)

One hour’s drive from Moshi lies the gate to the Machame route, where we complete park formalities, meet our crew of porters and start to climb! The first section of the route climbs steadily and passes through magnificent, dense rainforest. This path is less well-trodden so it can get somewhat overgrown in places and it is often wet and muddy underfoot.

Day 4 of Tour

 

Day 4: Barranco Camp (3960m) to Barafu Camp (4640m)

Our day starts by descending into the Great Barranco, a huge ravine. We then exit steeply, up the Great Barranco Wall, which divides us from the southeastern slopes of Kibo. It’s a climb over rock, not technical, but long and tiring. Passing underneath the Heim and Kersten glaciers, we head towards the Karanga valley, which is our last stop for fresh water before the summit. Scree now forms the terrain as we walk through arid and desolate land towards Barafu camp.

Distance covered: 8.5km / 5.3mi

Day 5 of Tour

 

Day 5: Barafu Camp (4640m) to UHURU PEAK (5895m) & down to Mweka Camp (3100m)

We start off at around midnight, and walk steeply upwards to the summit glaciers. We will be climbing scree for 4 to 5 hours but gain incredible height over a short distance. The views are spectacular. We should be on the crater rim at Stella Point (5739m) as the first rays of the sun hit us. Spectacular ice cliffs within the crater surround us and the views to jagged Mawenzi peak and beyond are breathtaking. Another hour’s walking takes us to the summit, Uhuru Peak (5895m). We begin our descent by returning to Stella Point and then descending on scree slope and track back to Barafu Camp for breakfast, before finally heading down to Mweka Camp for a long well-earned rest.
