In the Footsteps of Livingstone

Original title: Tras los pasos de Livingstone
Category: Non-Fiction | Travel
Synopsis:

A journey through east africa following the routes of the first explorers.

Xavier Moret crosses East Africa in this book, recollecting as he does so the explorers who did it before him, when Western maps still showed the center of Africa as a vast empty space. His route departs from Zanzibar, where the majority of the expeditions leading to the center of the continent began, and continues to Tanzania, where Stanley and Livingstone’s mythical meeting took place. It reaches Uganda, the origin of the Nile, continues on to Kenya, and examines the merciless colonization of the Congo.

Xavier Moret combines information and entertainment like none other.

Highlights In the Footsteps of Livingstone

1

“The good thing about Africa is that often it breaks with your preconceived ideas and obliges you to reflect on what your priorities in life are. There you soon realize that time isn’t measured the same way as in Europe, that the accumulation of material goods makes little sense, and that every day can be an adventure. The sight of Africa’s fauna takes us back to prehistory, immersing us in an overflowing nature where majestic baobobs look like cathedrals and the immensity of the Savannah is like an invitation into the infinite.”
