[edit] Information

The Longest river on the planet, the Nile flows from the heart of a continent uniting mountain, jungle, marsh and desert. But for such a huge and powerful river, the Nile has been reluctant to give up its secrets. Throughout history, mankind has struggled to understand it. The Ancient Egyptians thought it was magical - a gift of the gods, whilst obsessive Victorian explorers endured unimaginable hardships in their search for its source. Nilereveals the true nature of the river and the reasons behind its magic - a magnificent and diverse mosaic of strange places and fascinating animals, stretching far back into some of the remotest corners of Africa.
