Trip Planner: Africa / Burundi / Bujumbura Mairie Province / Bujumbura / Livingstone-Stanley Monument
Discover the meeting place of two celebrated British explorers, Stanley and Livingstone, at Livingstone-Stanley Monument. Dr. Livingstone aimed to find the source of the Nile, but lost connection with the outside world for several years. Because he was presumed lost, Sir Stanley headed to Africa to find him. A single, giant rock marks the site of their chance encounter, with their names and the date carved into its surface. They spent several nights at this spot, discussing ideas and sharing thoughts. Apart from the monument, the site serves as an ideal vantage point among the picturesque scenery.
