William Burchell was an explorer, scientist, and polymath. He spent 5 years in South Africa, exploring the Cape interior with Khoi and Bushman guides, and meticulously recording the local people, the fauna and flora, and giving his name to animals like the Burchell's Zebra. Missionary David Livingstone was a legend of exploration in Africa, where he died. Both men left valuable records of their travels. Come with me on Friday, 8 November at 9am as we admire their beautiful artwork, notebooks, letters, and more. A rare privilege. Cost is R400pp. Email me to join the 3-hour tour: lucilledavie@gmail.com
