Go deep into Africa with four renowned explorers attempting to follow the historic journey of Henry Morton Stanley and his search for Dr. David Livingstone. Using the same basic technology available to Stanley, but with the aid of his journal as a guide, the explorers will attempt to complete the 900+ mile trek in only thirty days time, rather than the ninety days it took Stanley to complete his journey.
Episode 6: Malaria Claims an Explorer
Benedict and Pasquale reach an uneasy truce as the explorers trek to Tabora, site of the Livingstone house. There, one of the team comes down with malaria – ironically, the same place where Stanley contracted it. This puts the future of the expedition entirely in question. In the end, they decide to continue, and the Expedition heads off toward an uncertain future, knowing any relapse could lead to their failure. Time is critical if they want to make Ujiji in 30 days.
With one of the team ill and needing care, the balance of power changes, and the group is exhausted. They make camp, but must build fires to ward off the danger from hippos. After a decision to rest for a day, confrontations ensue. Two of the team get into a huge fight, putting team unity – and hope for a successful expedition – into shambles.
