The Nile River



We normally think of the Nile as being a river in Egypt, but the Nile actually extends a significant way down into Africa. The Nile goes all the way south to Lake Victoria, the largest lake in the world. Lake Victoria is on the border between Kenya and Uganda.

The picture above was taken in the Sudan, and shows natives filling water skins from the Nile. You can see scenes such as this to this day.
