David Livingstone Museum

In the Zambezi Region, near the Nkasa Lupala National Park, a small museum commemorates David Livingstone - the great explorer and advocate for the abolishment of slavery.

The small building museum tells the stories and travels of David Livingstone, from Kuruman in South Africa to Sangwali where he stayed before travelling into central Africa. It houses large wall maps showing the missionary’s travels as well as artefacts like pictures and maps painted on canvas and photos of significant characters from his life. There are also posters on local customs and crafts, such as basketry.

The museum was built in 2000 as a thatched clay hut and was renovated in 2017.
