His stories of the Madness over the past 30 years, his climbing days with Scott Fischer, and his years living and guiding in Tanzania are something you don't want to miss!

"Pole pole" on Kilimanjaro

This was the last Kilimanjaro trip of the season and all six clients made to the top. The group arrived on the 9th August 2014 but in two separate flights. George with his kids arrived from Nairobi while the other three arrived with KLM. First night at our private camp was very special place to be. Driving in darkness from the airport, Michael said, “Ben, what are we going to see?” “Nothing!” I answered in a joking way. It is very dark but we could see some lights in the villages, and in the park before camp we saw a waterbuck and three rabbits. So perhaps I was wrong as we did see something!

MM Guide Ben Mality Takes You To the Roof of Africa

You can say it takes a village to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. This is very true as you climb with Mountain Madness; with well trained guides, hard working porters, and professional cooks, it is possible to reach the roof of Africa.
