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.
