It is also the site of the famous meeting on October 28, 1871 when Henry Stanley found Dr. David Livingstone, and reputedly uttered the famous words "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" Livingstone, whom many thought dead as no news had been heard of him for several years and who had only arrived back in Ujiji the day before, wrote "When my spirits were at their lowest ebb, the good Samaritan was close at hand, for one morning my servant Susi came running at the top of his speed and gasped out, 'An Englishman! I see him!' and off he darted to meet him. The American flag at the head of the caravan told of the nationality of the stranger.

Bales of goods, baths of tin, huge kettles, cooking pots, tents, etc., made me think, 'This must be a luxurious traveller, and not one at his wits' end like me.'" A monument known as the "Dr. Livingstone Memorial" was erected in Ujiji to commemorate the meeting. There is also a modest museum. There is a former slave route near the market.

In 1878, the London Missionary Society established their first missionary post on the shore of Lake Tanganyika at Ujiji. There after you will drive back to your hotel lunch relax in your hotel dinner and overnight at LAKE TANGANYIKA HOTEL / KIGOMA HILLTOP HOTEL.
