We travel along the shores of Lake Nyasa as we reach Blantyre in the country of Malawi. You may be surprised at such a Scottish sounding place name deep in the heart of Africa. The reason is simple, the town was named after the Scottish birthplace of renowned explorer David Livingstone who was instrumental in the growth of the town.
David Livingstone (19 March 1813 – 1 May 1873) was a Scottish Congregationalist pioneer medical missionary with the London Missionary Society and an explorer in Africa, one of the most popular national heroes of the late 19th century in Victorian Britain.
