Description Routes taken by expeditions of Burton and Speke and Grant and Speke. Burton and Speke explored from the east coast as far as Tanganyika and then returned. Speke took a side journey to Lake Victoria on the return journey. Speke and Grant journeyed from the east coast and via Lake Victoria returned up the river Nile. Note that the country names and boundaries are the modern ones not the names of the time and the boundaries would, obviously, be uncertain at that point. Image produced by Richard G. Clegg using freely available map data and software.
