Barafu Camp Picture

Approching Barafu Camp
Approching Barafu Camp
Here is a picture of Barafu Camp on the Machame Route. Barafu Camp is fairly exposed on the mountain and there isn’t many spots to put your tent to avoid Mother Nature’s elements. You can try to find some big rocks near the top of the camp. There can be a fairly good wind blowing most of the day, so make sure to stake down your tents. Barafu Camp sits right on the main trail heading up the mountain. From this camp, at night, you can actually see all the trekkers, with their flashlights, making there way up the mountain.

Barafu is KiSwahili means “ice,” so expect this camp to be one of the coldest camps on the mountain. Here is another picture of Barafu Camp
