The Livingstone–Stanley Monument is located at Mugere in Burundi 12 km south of the capital Bujumbura, overlooking Lake Tanganyika, and marks a location where explorer and missionary Dr David Livingstone and journalist and explorer Henry Morton Stanley visited and spent two nights on 25–27 November 1871. Both of them were staying there between 25 and 27 November 1871, even though according to some Burundians, this is actually the location where the two explorers first met, on their wy to find the source of the River Nile. The monument itself is a big stone on which there is an inscription marking their surnames and date.
