David Livingstone

Africa's most famous explorer, slavery abolitionist, missionary and of course, a hunter: David Livingstone (b. 1813 Scotland - d. 1873 Lake Bangweulu, Zambia). Seen here with family his two former porters and adjutants, James Chuma and Abdullah Susi, who later accompanied his dead body to England and assisted in the revision of his maps on previously uncharted large chunks of Africa. Seen here atop the skin of one of his lions, likely the one who mauled him to near death, leaving him partially paralyzed and wounded for the rest of his life.
