Again, on the map illustrating Livingstone's " Last Journals " the Luapula is shown as issuing from the Bangweulu in the north-west, when an examination of the account of the natives who carried the great explorer's remains to the coast would have shown that it leaves that lake on the south.
BANGWEULU, a shallow lake of British Central Africa, formed by the head streams of the Congo.
Bangweulu occupies the north-west part of a central basin in an extensive plateau, and is about 3700 ft.
The term Bangweulu is sometimes applied to the whole depression, but is properly confined to the area of clear water.
South of Bangweulu the swamp extends to 12° 10' S.
