Exploration of Africa
Africa was still largely a mystery to Europeans at the dawn of the 19th century, but that soon changed as explorers ventured into the continent's interior. The Scottish missionary David Livingstone became the first white man to see Victoria Falls, and of course he would later be joined by the explorer Henry Stanley. The exploration of Africa became one of the great adventures of the age.
