Take a journey back in time and discover the facts about a great mystery waiting to be solved: the source of the Nile. Two men set out to find where the world's longest river began, but only one was to succeed! This was a journey of the unexpected, across land that had never been explored before. Find out about the difficulties the travelers faced: the searing heat of Africa, the mountainous terrain, the dangerous wild animals, and the agony of tropical diseases. Learn more about the African continent and the people the explorers met as they struggled on foot across unknown lands.
