- Recommend to a Friend: Highly
Took a group of 15 climbers of which 12 were first timers on the Machame Route. Six day climb to allow for extra acclimitisation. All summited successfully. People under estimate Kili - virtually zero medical assistance available on the mountain and guides seem to think it is more important to get you up rather than down. 3 people died within a week of our summit. Never the less a great mountain and not very difficult but pay it the respect it deserves.
