I AM Mungo Park, Scots surgeon explorer. You have just followed a glimpse of my fatal journey in 1806. I led a party attempting to navigate the length of the Niger River. All died but one. The controversial name ‘Niger’ is believed to be a shortened version of the Tuareg phrase ‘gher n gheren’ - meaning the river of rivers = ngher!
