Johnston was invited in 1884 on behalf of the Royal Society to undertake a scientific mission to explore Mount Kilimanjaro and its surroundings. The mission also had covert political objectives and Johnston was accredited by the Foreign Office to (Sir) John Kirk, the British agent and Consul-General at Zanzibar. On this expedition he made valuable contributions to scientific knowledge, and effected treaties with the chiefs of local native tribes by which they accepted British protection. These treaties formed the basis of the subsequent foundation of the British East Africa Protectorate (1895), later Kenya and Uganda.
