In Journey To The Top Of Africa, Patrick Mages tells a fascinating story of a night crossing of the Amboselli Game Reserve in Kenya, a five day climb of the fabled 19,300 foot Mt. Kilimanjaro and a four wheel drive descent into the Ngorongoro Crater, a long-extinct volcano and home to most species of African wildlife. If you've never climbed a mountain this is an ideal book for the armchair mountaineer. Patrick explains what it takes both mentally and physically to ascend the highest mountain in Africa. He laces the entire adventure with humor, fact, fiction, sensitive observations and many personal reflections from a life on the move, driven by endless curiosity and positive spirit.
