Scotland was the birthplace of Dr. David Livingstone (1813-1873) whose life conjures up images of the so-called discovery and exploration of Africa.  Much of his travels covered the northern part of Mozambique. The work “Mount Mabu” draws its double references from the wooden structure in which Livingstone was carried before he died  and  from the 2008 scientific expedition led by Kew Gardens scientists to Mount Mabu, a so called unmapped area in northern Mozambique.
