Funded by the British Government, the Zambesi Expedition was supposed to explore the natural resources of south east Africa and identify possible commercial markets for the Empire. Unfortunately for Livingstone, the Expedition suffered huge problems as the Zambesi proved to be impassable in many places, and he suffered difficulties with labour because of fever, the slave-routes, endemic warfare and personal differences with his British companions.

By early 1864, due to lack of food, navigational problems and the desertion or death of many of his porters and co-explorers, including his wife Mary, it was clear this mission was over.Dr David Livingstone was, however, a true Victorian hero, and although at the time, this trip was seen by many as a failure, he was later lauded as a great explorer, Christian missionary and reformer.

His personal campaign against the brutality of the slave-trade, which was rife along the shores of the Zambesi, inspired the abolitionists, and his discoveries of Victoria Falls and Lake Malawi and his travels down the Zambesi and its tributaries filled in many empty parts of the map of Africa.• OVER 30 ILLUSTRATIONS
