Sir Richard Francis Burton
      
Was the First European to See Lake Tanganyika
After a failed attempt in 1855, Burton returned to Africa with John Hanning Speke to explore Africa (1857-58). Burton contracted malaria and he and Speke disagreed about Lake Victoria (named by Speke) being the source of the White nile. Burton is well-known for his translation of the 16 volumes of "The Tales of the Arabian Nights". He was knighted by Queen Victoria in 1886.
