Adventure and fun in the Nile

Tue, Oct 12, 2010

Northern Africa

When you get to do this about ten times, the guide will almost effortlessly steer the raft into the sweet spot. This is where you stay. You should no be too surprised to know that you are suspended smack in the middle of the Nile. And you would most probably get battered by the water that thrashes against the vessel. If you really want to, you could try the boogie boards. Later on you could jump in on your belly when then when you point yourself downstream, you will find that precise current that had you got fixed in clear stream of white water , in the very first place. It is almost like surfing on a wave that never ends.

This is probably the best way to end your trip.  Later on you could climb back up on the bus. By now you must be completely exhausted, sunburned with swollen shoulders and feet. When you actually look around and see the faces of the people who you have gone with, you would definitely feel a sudden feeling of companionship of going through something like that together.

The Nile is considered to be the longest river in the world. It is a river that flows north in Africa. The Nile has two large, major tributaries; these are the White Nile and the Blue Nile.  The Blue Nile is the actually source of all the water and the fertile soil that river has.  The White Nile is longer than the other one though.  The White Nile comes out from the central part from Africa and almost emerges from the great lakes.

The Blue Nile starts at Lake Tana in Ethiopia and flows all the way into Sudan in the southeast. The two rivers meet at the capital of Sudan, called Khartoum.

The north of the river passes through a huge desert right from Sudan into Egypt.  The Whole Egyptian Culture and civilization would not have existed if it weren’t for the river Nile.  The civilization almost depended on it and formed a spindle about its cultures, its people, its rulers and its lifestyle all with the river Nile.

In fact all of the historical part of Ancient Egypt is found along the banks of the river. The Nile finally ends up in a delta.

Nile comes from the Greek word Neilos which is almost of unknown origin.  It also means Great River.

The basin that actually drains the Nile covered about three million two hundred and fifty thousand square kilometers. This is almost about ten percent of the entire African Continent.
