it was the horror in his mind that the cilization will be against him knowing his reality.
He had found his own type of wild peace in living with the 'savages' and he did not want to return to the confines of Victorian society. It is unclear whether Kurtz is delirious and therefore out of his mind (which makes him try to escape) or he really does not want to return to his home country.
