Is it Zimbabwe? Could the famous person you mentioned be Cecil Rhodes?

Driving on the left? Uganda? Idi Amin? Pakuba Lodge?

Hi,

It is not Cecil Rhodes, Uganda, Idi Amin (I have been to his 'palace' and jail cells). It is not Zimbabwe.

So, we have:

  • They drive on the left (right hand drive car - well spotted)
  • Someone famous lived here for 5 years
  • They are amazingly famous for a quote that were actually the word of another man
  • There is a relationship with Tanzania. In Fact this and the clue above go together
  • Its very dry. lots of sand in some places

Nothing like watching the Rugby World cup and roasting a whole Kudu.

I only have a few photos of the original site because it was not a big place. The young daughter of the famous man is buried there. She died at a young age. All the photos above are in the same country, just not the original homestead.

Near Sekoma, Botswana?

These photos are from the large (or 'large') city that is 12 kms from the homestead. I staid at a house I saw when it became dark. I noticed later that every place I stayed in the country has the telephone number embroidered with the telephone number of the hotel! They really, really, do not want you to steal the towels....

These are from the big city 12 kms away. 10% of the population live here, but it is not anything like Cairo or Lagos. Small and quiet.

Are we talking David Livingstone, at Kolobeng Mission in Botswana?

Dr Livingstone, I presume?

Teoni did guess Botswana earlier though.
