If you haven’t heard yet, there’s a cool new series coming on the HISTORY channel called Expedition Africa: Stanley & Livingstone. It premieres on May 31 and I’ll be writing about a few episodes of the series I’ve been lucky enough to see ahead of time.
For all you SURVIVOR fans, this is a HISTORY channel event for you!
More to come…
HISTORY™ presents the television event of the summer: EXPEDITION AFRICA: STANLEY & LIVINGSTONE.
Watch the series premiere May 31 at 10pm/9c. Twenty miles off the coast of eastern Africa, four modern-day explorers are sailing toward the unknown, the deep interior of Tanzania. They’ll travel over 900 miles through African terrain that is as stunning as it is fraught with danger. Using only a compass and basic maps, they will attempt to recapture the spirit of one of the world’s most remarkable adventures—journalist Henry Morton Stanley’s perilous 1871 journey to find Dr. David Livingstone. Their historic exploration has been captured by one of the premiere storytellers of our time, Mark Burnett. This is not a competition or a game. It’s a real-life adventure. Join other fans on Facebook, follow History on Twitter, and visit the official site.

To enter, leave a name and valid e-mail with a description of what three things you’d bring on an expedition to Africa if YOU were the one trying to find Dr. Livingstone. I’ll pick a winner randomly from the submissions on June 12 and announce it here on the blog.
Personally, I’d bring my journal (with an infinite supply of paper and pens), my camera (with an infinite supply of memory sticks and a waterproof case), and (after watching a few episodes) an ever-full canteen of ice water. 🙂
