Henry Morton Stanley's First Trans-Africa Expedition: Between 1874 and 1877, Henry Morton Stanley - famed for his search and discovery of missionary explorer David Livingstone in 1871 - traveled central Africa East to West, exploring Lake Victoria, Lake Tanganyika and the Lualaba and Congo rivers. He covered 7,000 miles (11,000 km), continually battling natives, diseases and mutinies, from Zanzibar in the east to Boma in the mouth of the Congo in the west, and resolved a number of open questions concerning the geography of central Africa. This including identifying the source of the Nile, which he proved was not the Lualaba - which is in fact the source of the river Congo - but rather the White Nile, which begins at Jinja, Lake Victoria. Stanley's journey had four principal aims: 1) Explore Lake Victoria and its inflowing and outflowing rivers; 2) Explore Lake Albert and its inflowing and outflowing rivers; 3) Explore Lake Tanganyika, checking the direction of flow of the river Rusizi at the north end of the lake; and 4) Explore the Lualaba River downstream towards its outflow. There was controversy among earlier explorers as to whether these lakes and rivers were connected to each other and the Nile. Being sponsored by the New York Herald - at the instigation of its then editor, James Gordon Bennett Jr., - and the Daily Telegraph newspapers, Stanley he was expected to write dispatches for them. He subsequently wrote a book of his experiences, Through the Dark Continent.
