The Machame Gate of Mount Kilimanjaro National Park

This is another famous entry route of the Kilimanjaro National Park. It is allocated at the base on the southern part of the Kilimanjaro Mountain.

Just Like the other gates, the gate has park administration offices where all official park activities related to the park are done like the registration.

It’s not just a formality, everyone that enters that park has to be registered to keep trek and account for all lives.

Registration and inspection procedures may include:-

If you do not fulfill any of the above requirements, you will be denied entry.

This route is only for ascending and hikers cannot descend using this route.

You will be expected to leave the mountain using another gate. Therefore you are expected to make arrangements for all the property that you leave that the base to be transferred to an area where you will descend from.


This gate is located in the area of Machame which is the southern part of the Kilimanjaro Mountain. The journey to this gate is well done and this makes the drive to this gate a little more smooth compared to the Marangu gate.

The gate has fewer shops since the gate is mostly for ascending and there for the traffic is a bit low.

Vegetation Zone

Most gates to the Kilimanjaro National Park are located at the base of the mountain and therefore they are all at the edge of the Montane forest zone vegetation of the mountain.

This area is characterized by a lot of trees that form a canopy at the top since it’s a tropical rain forest. This makes the place a bit cooler since the sun rays cannot hit directly.

There is a lot of rainfall in the area almost throughout the year.

Machame Gate to Machame Camp

The gate is at an elevation of about 1,640 meters above sea level while the camp is 2,835 meters above sea level which is about 7 miles and can take about 7 hours of hiking.

Moshi Town to Machame gate

The gate is approximately 30 kilometers from the town of Moshi and can take about 45 minutes since the road is well done.
