On his way to discovering Lake Malawi in 1859, explorer David Livingstone took his small motor vessel up the Shire River, the first white man to do so. Its banks lined with borassus palms and fever trees the Shire River has not much changed today, as it wends its way from Lake Malawi, being the only drainage of the lake, to the Zambesi River, being one of its major tributaries. Perhaps one of Livingstone's days on the Shire ended like this, with the borassus palms silhouetted by a golden sunset.
