The Nile River

See the kayaker and the rubber boat...this boat went over fine but a larger one lost two people overboard and as they rushed away, a surge pushed the two in the water towards the boat and the people grabbed them and pulled them up and in as the boat surged downstream. The Nile is over 3000 miles long and it was rushing and raging!!

The rapids are category five and we saw any number of kayakers and a couple of rubber boats go over...two people fell out of the boat but were picked up. Incredibly fast moving rapids.

First sighting of the River Nile!
