The mighty Nile River is Africa’s longest river (about 6,650 km/4,130 mi) in the northeastern part of the continent and flows northwards on its passage to the Mediterranean. It is an international river with its drainage basin covering eleven countries. Of its two major tributaries, the White Nile, which is the headwaters and primary stream of the Nile itself, rises in the Great Lakes region of central Africa. A visit to the Source of the Nile in Uganda is a wonderful thing to witness when you consider that it is the same river that flows past the ancient Egyptian temples of Luxor some 6 000 km downstream. The area’s crowning glory, however, is Murchison Falls (also referred to as the Kabarega Falls), where this powerful river funnels through a narrow fissure in the Rift Escarpment to erupt out of the other side in a crashing 43 metre plume of white water. Enjoy superb white water rafting, game fishing or just watching the banks which are thronged with hippos, crocodiles, waterbuck and buffalo.
