Dr. David Livingstone had spent several months in 1856, in the Mamili area during which he befriended the Makololo Chief Sebetuane. In his memoirs, Livingstone described the area as ‘the garden of Eden’.

Guests can visit the nearby museum, built as a tribute to an ill-fated missionary party of two families, Holloway Helmore and Roger Price who were sent in 1859 to establish a mission station in Linyanti after receiving instruction from Livingstone before he set off in search of the source of the Zambezi.

The understanding was Livingstone would return and meet up with the missionaries after his travels on the Zambezi. Tragically, most of the families met their fate there before Livingstone arrived. The full account of this story will be recounted on your visit to the museum.
