AFCA teams fly into Kilimanjaro International Airport where someone from SENE meets them. After loading the gear into vehicles, team members will enjoy a drive that takes them through the flat farmlands leading to the lush slopes of Kilimanjaro. The ride will end at Mbahe Farm where climbers relax and enjoy the hospitality of SENE staff for the next 1-2 days.
Mbahe Farm sits at 6,400 feet above sea level and offers climbers the opportunity to acclimate to altitude and enhances the changes of summiting. In addition, Mbahe Farm is tucked into the beautiful countryside and offers peaceful vistas with the ever-present sound of a waterfall in the background.
After this peaceful respite, the SENE staff will lead the team to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro following the Machame Route. Click here for details about the Machame Route. Climbers will spend 6 nights and 7 days on the mountain climbing through four climate zones to reach Uhuru Peak, the pinnacle of the climb.
At the conclusion of every climb, climbers return to Mbahe Farm for a celebration dinner with the guides and porters of SENE. It’s a lively, song-filled evening that brings the Climb Up Kilimanjaro experience to a wonderful conclusion.
