Lake Ngami; or explorations and discoveries…in South Western Africa


Written by Charles J Andersson, a Swede who, with a friend he had made in London, the explorer Francis Galton, decided on a venture to Southern Africa. Andersson was an amateur naturalist and in this narrative describes in detail the geological and mineral features of these scarcely visited lands, together with the religions, manners and customs of the local tribes. Initially travelling with Galton who returned early to London, Andersson went on to reach Lake Ngami before arriving back in London in 1855.
