an opportunity to embrace Christianity,

northward in the interior. This was a place
infested with lions. Unfortunately while
exploring the place the very brave missionary
got attacked by a lion. Why did he grow such a deep attachment to Africa? The Death Unfortunately Dr.Livingstone died in Ilala near the Bangweulu Lake on the first of May1873.

with wide ranging interests. Why did David Livingstone go to Africa? Africa was known as the "Dark Continent"meaning unexplored and also savage and untamed and that is on of the reasons to why he got so attracted to the place.David Livingstone was one of the first europeans to ever go explore Africa and within the few years he spent there he grew a very strong connection. Dr.Livingstone saw the way the people were, how they lived, the beauty of Africa and just like that he learned to love the place.
