Mungo Park (11 September 1771 – 1806) was a Scottish explorer of West Africa. After an exploration of the upper Niger River around 1796, he wrote a popular and influential travel book titled Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa in which he theorized the Niger and Congo merged to become the same river, though it was later proven that they are different rivers.

He was killed during a second expedition, having successfully travelled about two-thirds of the way down the Niger.

He didn’t discover the River Niger rather the River has been in existence for centuries.  #africa
