About the Book

The story is about the trip I undertook to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. Climbing Kilimanjaro was not in my bucket list of things I wanted to do before the end of my time in this world, nor was I physically ready to be part of such a great venture. My experience of this venture related very well with how I see the world around me and how we as people engage and relate with the universe. Climbing Kilimanjaro became a perfect analogy on how to interpret the life we live. It was about the survival on this earth. Our interaction with people and earthly creation is fully captured in a matter of few days on the mountain.

About the Author

Monde surprised himself by first, agreeing to join the team and secondly, for reaching Uhuru on Mt Kilimanjaro. The experience inspired him to draw parallels between the life of growing up from rural part of South Africa and the experience of climbing this gigantic mountain in the African continent. This is his first project. It is meant to inspire young and old people to work towards conquering their personal mountains whatever they may be about.
