Quick Overview



One of the few French Protestant missionaries to venture into southern Africa, Coillard founded a mission in Lesotho, from where he had gone to Natal, Orange, Transvaal. In 1877 he went north to convert the Banyai people discovered by Livingstone. Detained as a prisoner with his wife and his team for several months, he finally reaches the Zambezi near Victoria Falls where he meets the Portuguese explorer Serpa Pinto, then re-joins his base after a painful crossing of the Kalahari. Coillard then undertakes the evangelization of Matabele and Barotse, founding missions in Seshéké in 1885, Sefoula in 1886, and Kazoungoula in 1889.
