History About Joseph Thomson and Thomson Falls Lodge Located in Nyahururu
In 1880, Joseph Thomson, a romantic adventurous Scotsman landed in Mombasa to begin his first exploratory journey in East Africa. Three years later, the Royal Geographic Society commissioned him to return to East Africa and he setout from Mombasa with 100 porters, headmen and interpreters. He took with him supplies, articles for reading and the first camera seen in East Africa.
Although Joseph Thomson and his party faced continual skirmishes with the Maasai, he persisted with his mission. He once defused a confrontation by spontaneously removing his false teeth, an act that totally astonished the Maasai Warriors. On another occasion, he convinced the Maasai that his camera made him invincible in battle. Thomson's expedition crossed a mountain range that he named the Aberdare Mountains, after the president of the Royal Geographical Society. He was the first European to see the waterfall's and also lent his name to the elegant Thomson's Gazelle. In the later years, Thomson wandered across West Sudan, the Atlas Mountains and Northern Zambia and in 1895 he returned to Scotland where he died at the age of 37.
