Dr. Livingstone, I presume? | Burundi

This monument, known as the Livingstone Rock is located just 8 miles outside Bujumbura, capital of Burundi.  

According to this rock is to remember the famous meeting between explorer Dr Livingstone and reporter Stanley in 1871. The latter spoke the famous words: "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?”.  

But  others sources state that the famous meeting took place a little earlier that year in Tanzania. Described clearly in Stanley's book "How I Found Livingstone".

Thank you very much Chris!
