(Current project since 2018)

In 1851, Dr. David Livingstone engraved his name together with a cross and the year in an ancient baobab (monkey bread tree) when he travelled the Zambezi area with his wife Mary, the big game hunter William Oswell and Sebitwane, the king of the Makololo, and his entourage. As part of their first expedition to this special, roughly 3,000-years-old tree, Konny von Schmettau rediscovered the signature that was deemed lost and, since her second expedition in 2018, has supported the Mayeyi people, on whose land the Baobab stands, in setting up a small project with a camping site to protect the tree and to ensure the Mayeyi an income through entrance fees and guided tours.
