'David Livingstone's adventurous journeys in Central Africa put more on the map of the 'dark continent' than any other explorer's. He was the first European to cross the African continent, covering at least thirty thousand miles and charting about a million square miles of unknown territory. He traced the course of the Zambesi to its source, discovering the Victoria Falls; he mapped the central African river system and discovered Lake Nyasa and Shirwa Highlands.'
