Additional Information

A spectacular collection of images and words that offer a detailed glimpse into the unique beauty and rhythm of Africa's natural wonder.

Mount Kilimanjaro is the African continent's highest mountain and the world's tallest freestanding mountain. It is a geological wonder formed, sculpted, and molded by the natural forces of volcanic fire and glacial ice. At 19,340 feet (5895 meters) high, Kilimanjaro towers above the Great Rift Valley and lies 3 degrees south of the equator, on the northern border of Tanzania, close to southeast Kenya.

Kilimanjaro is an accessible mountain that one can climb without the help of any technical equipment. The ascent starts from the cultivated lower slopes with dry blistering heat, through a lush, wet rainforest jungle, into heath and moorland zones, all the way up to the desolate alpine desert landscape and the steep, exposed arctic summit area, where one will experience breathtaking views of the legendary snows of Kilimanjaro.

Moushabeck and Schulz invite you along as they explore and climb Mount Kilimanjaro. In this book they capture the essence of this majestic mountain with over 200 full-color photographs and an engaging and entertaining narrative that smoothly ties together personal observations with the mountain's history, its people, and its ecology.

This lovely little book has the knack of taking you right along on the trip with it. The author begins by explaining how he surprised himself by suddenly deciding to hike Mt. Kilimanjaro, while talking to an associate in London. He and his partner then canceled a trip to Portugal and started a fitness program to ascend the mountain instead.

Casually written and anecdotal, the account moves quickly through the trip preparations, the flight to Africa, and the jeep ride to the point of departure for the hike. For anyone considering the trip, there is useful information on the climbing history of Kilimanjaro, on the various routes to the top, and on the peoples of the region.

The hike itself is a tale of extremes: the exhausting conditions of terrain and weather, versus the sublime beauty of the tropical forest, the flowers and monkeys, the rock formations, the ice-fields, and the vistas from on high. Anyone who has ever climbed will recognize the unique peace... Read more
This book is an engaging and reflective account of an American publisher, Michel Moushabeck, who at age 53 set out to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak and, at 19,340 feet, the world's tallest free-standing mountain. In spite of fighting mountain sickness during the final part of the ascent, Moushabeck persevered to the summit.

Although Kilimanjaro, three degrees south of the Equator, is a gradual climb that does not require mountaineering equipment, "it is a trek that pushes you to your limits, as your body battles exhaustion under sometimes unpredictably harsh weather conditions - heat, rain, fog, wind, snow - on a variety of challenging terrains: muddy, dusty, rocky, snowing, and icy."

Against the backdrop of these arduous conditions, the author never loses sight of the spectacular beauty of the journey and the sweetness of the African people. Accompanied by a brilliant selection of original and illuminating photographs taken by his partner,... Read more
This book brought back some great memories of my Kilimanjaro climb in 2007! The pictures are beautiful, and the author's description of his climb is very well done, and true! This is a must read for any adventurer or dreamer!
