Source of the River Nile.
The Nile is world’s longest River. It passes 6 countries before it drops its water in the Mediterranean sea. It took the British over 300 hundred years to find the source of the Nile. This river is also one of the reasons why early explorers came to Africa. British Explorer John Hanning Speke discovered the source of the Nile on 3rd August 1858. This is an important aspect while considering the Uganda safari packages.
