Sir Richard Francis Burton: English Explorer

Sir Richard Francis Burton (March 19, 1821 - Oct. 20, 1890) was an English explorer, linguist, author, and soldier. In 1853, Burton traveled to Cairo, Suez, and the holy cities of Medina and Mecca. Burton made an 1854 journey to the forbidden East African city of Harar (Harer). He was disguised as an Arab pilgrim and spoke excellent Arabic. (Europeans were not allowed in Arabian holy cities; they were executed if they were caught.) In 1855, Burton and three companions (including John Hanning Speke and two other officers of the British East India Company) began an unsuccessful trip in search of the source of the White Nile; one member of the expedition was killed in an attack by Africans, and Speke and Burton were injured. After a stint as a soldier in the Crimean War, Burton returned to Africa (1857-58) with Speke in order to renew their search. After much hardship, they made it to Lake Tanganyika (they were the first Europeans to see it). Speke continued on to the lake that Speke later named Lake Victoria, the biggest lake in Africa (Burton was too ill, suffering from malaria). Speke realized (correctly) that Lake Victoria was the White Nile's source, but Burton did not agree - their long friendship ended over this disagreement.

Fancher on Galton’s African Ethnography

Raymond Fancher has been engaged for many decades now on a major new life of Francis Galton (1822-1911), written from what he describes as a “psychobiographical” perspective. This lengthy enterprise, unfinished so-far, has produced numerous papers along the way, and it is possible to piece together from these the chief intent of the author: to situate Galton’s hereditarianism in his personal psychology. The idea is not without interest, though the results seem less than convincing to date. Fancher’s work will be reviewed in detail on by following these major papers, beginning with his description of the influence that Galton’s travels in South-West Africa had on his study of human variation. Galton embarked on his scientific career by exploring previously uncharted areas of South-West Africa in the early 1850s, under the aegis of the Royal Geographical Society (RGS). Fancher correctly notes that this trip had an important influence on Galton’s thinking about human diversity. Galton himself remarked several times on the powerful and lasting effect that this trip had on his later work: it seems to have been his own Voyage of the Beagle , providing the germs for theories that only reached maturity decades later.

Heraldic bookplate of William Edwards. The most famous of the Victorian African explorers, David Livingstone, a shopkeeper's son from Blantyre, Scotland, had qualified in medicine from Glasgow University and sailed for southern Africa with the London Missionary Society in 1840. Over the next years, he steadily pushed his base northward into central Africa, until in 1851 he reached the Zambesi. Sending his wife and family home, he set out on an extraordinary series of travels through what was still Arab slave-trading territory, until he eventually marched his porters down the Zambesi valley towards the east coast, and in 1855 discovered the Falls of Shongwe, illustrated here; these he admiringly described as seeming to "exceed in size the falls of the Clyde at Stonebyres," and renamed in honor of the British queen. Sir Samuel White Baker, 1821-1893

A Brief History of Nile Exploration
In the modern era, numerous expeditions have been attempted on the Blue Nile, with several intrepid river-runners attempting the dangerous route from Lake Tana to the Mediterranean Sea. Some of these have included:
So why did Pasquale Scaturro and Gordon Brown succeed where all others have failed for thousands of years? Modern equipment, exceptional experience, strong wills and a healthy dose of luck all likely have something to do with it. But their triumph in paddling from the highlands of Ethiopia to the sea at Alexandria without disaster may simply be another MYSTERY OF THE NILE.

    The earliest inhabitants of Uganda were hunters and gatherers who lived more than 50,000 years ago and whose stone axes have been found near the villages of Mweya and Kagera in the southwest and at Paraa in the northwest. Their descendants retreated to the mountains between 2,500 and 3,000 years ago when Bantu-speaking farmers moved into forested areas and cleared the land for crops. Iron smelting by Bantu-speaking cultures has been dated from 2,500 years ago, and Bantu pottery from 1,500 years ago. Bantu-speakers near the shores of Lake Victoria developed the banana as a staple food about 1,000 years ago. Between 600 and 700 years ago the Chwezi, a Bantu subgroup, established settlements at Bigo in western Uganda. The Chwezi were depicted in legends as supernatural, but probably were the ancestors of the region's present-day Hima and Tutsi herders.

    At Kenya's Western frontier lies the great
    expanse of Lake Victoria This massive (67,493 sq kms) lake, commonly known as Nyanza, is twice the size of Wales,
    and forms a natural boundary between Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The lake is the heart of the African continent, the source of its mightiest river, the Nile. In the 19th century the riddle of the Nile was one of the great enigmas of African exploration. After many expeditions failed, John Hanning Speke finally reached these shores in 1858. The Nile flows northwards, carrying the waters of Nyanza to Egypt and beyond into the Mediterranean. This mighty body of water is rich in fish life, with shimmering shoals of colourful cichlids and large Nile Perch. Nyanza province is the heartland of the Luo, a tribe known as formidable fisherman. Fishing brings many visitors to this lake, mainly in search of the Nile Perch, considered a world-class game fish. There are three separate fishing lodges on islands within Victoria. Kisumu is a quiet port town on the Lakeshore, with wide streets and fine colonial architecture. To the south fishing villages line the lake towards the broad waters of Homa Bay. This area is home to Ruma National Park, a small but attractive park with many unique species.
