Resting place of Mary Moffat Livingstone

During my trek along the mighty Zambezi river, I visited the resting place of Mary Moffat Livingstone, the wife of the late great Dr David Livingstone himself!

On her return to Africa she had met Livingstone at the mouth of the Zambezi, but then fell ill from malaria in the camp here at Chupanga. She died 3 months later on 27 April 1862.

The place has a real eerie feel to it and is completely abandoned! Hers being the only maintained site, nestled amongst many other neglected headstones!
