His quest for the source of the Nile and mysterious four-year disappearance burnished his image in Victorian England and beyond – returned to Africa in 1866. He got his bearings in Zanzibar, where this tour also start. You’ll visit the former spice trade capital of Stone Town, as well as the house he stayed in. next, it’s off to Lake Tanganyika, Africa’s deepest lake, which Living stone helped map, and Ujiji, where journalist Henry Morton Stanley encountered the ailing explorer in 1871 and famously remarked, “Dr.Livingstone, I presume.” (At some point on his journey, Livingstone had lost contact with the outside world).
