Climbing Kilimanjaro (Machame Route) The Machame route is normally completed in 6 days and this greatly helps your acclimatization. The Machame route takes you high to Lava Tower (4630m/15190ft) on day 3 then brings you down for overnight at Barranco camp (3950m/12960ft). This intermediate ascent and decent is the secret to successful acclimatization and the reason why this route has a high success rate.



It is a beautiful route up Kilimanjaro that allows you to experience the southwest and south side of Mount Kilimanjaro since you go up one way and come down on another. All your equipment and supplies are carried by porters and a cook prepares all your meals.

NGORONGORO MAASAI PRE SCHOOLS

Maasai community has one of the highest illiteracy and lowest school enrollment rates in East Africa, primarily due to lack of enough schools and pastoral life adaptations which prevents many children from receiving an education. We strongly believe that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty that plagues their communities and can create a better future for children and their families. That is why we started to promote education in Ngorongoro Conservation Area among Maasai adaptations by building a Pre-school where by 96 children are currently registered on our two maasai pre-schools thats (enduleni and Isirwa pre schools) and with it an opportunity to sponsor a child as he or she begins an education journey that will prepare him or her for future success.


Zara Charity is proud to have played a vital role in bringing education to pre-school aged children of Ngorongoro. 
Here, children are given meals, learn basic skills and Swahili, and be exposed to a classr…
