Eugène de Pruyssenaere
After traveling through southern Europe in 1853, he came to Crete via Brussa , from where he visited the islands of the Aegean Sea , in 1854 and set foot on African soil for the first time in Alexandria the next year . In 1857 he was in Korosko and Berber; whether he continued this journey to Khartoum is uncertain. He then went back to Cairo and Palestine , but was back in Korosko on October 23, 1858, and drove up the White and Blue Nile several times from 1859 to 1864 , the latter as far as Fazogl , as he also explored the Sobat for a distance .
On one of these trips he succumbed to a fever at Karkög's in 1864 .
