Edward Mohr arrived in Durban in early 1869, having been inspired by Carl Mauch's discoveries to visit southern Africa. En route to the goldfields, Mohr met both Mauch and Thomas Baines. He also met Lobengula before proceeding to the Falls on 20 June 1870. Mohr provides an interesting and informative account of his travels. See Mendelssohn, MENDELSSOHN'S SOUTH AFRICAN BIBLIOGRAPHY, volume 2, pages 32-33.
