What’s the attraction?
“19 March 2013 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of David Livingstone – explorer, missionary and medic. The Scot is famed as one of the first Westerners to make a transcontinental journey across Africa. His “discoveries” include Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River and Lake Malawi. Victoria Falls is the obvious destination, but we’d recommend a more expedition-style trip.”
