Growing up abroad as an army brat, Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous) always dreamed of one day seeing the mighty Nile. This trip of a lifetime marks a dream come true. Traveling by fishing boat, ferry, cruise ship, plane, train, car, and Zapcat, Joanna follows the world’s longest river from mouth to source. The 4,000-mile journey takes her from the teeming city of Alexandria to the verdant forests of Rwanda, from the heat of the Sudanese desert to the highlands of Ethiopia, through multiple countries and across thousands of years of history.
Enthusiastic, witty, and warm, Joanna is the ideal travel companion. She’s game for almost anything, from sleeping on a crowded deck to slogging through mud and judging an “Ancient Egypt Night” contest. She charms everyone she meets: ship captains, crocodile hunters, nomads, whirling dervishes, and Sudanese beauty queens. With Joanna as your guide, this affable travelogue is “a joy to watch” (Daily Mail, U.K.).
Joanna Lumley has appeared in many hit television series and films, and she is an outspoken advocate for human rights and animal welfare.
One of the best things I have ever seen. I was captivated by it and was sad when it was over.Published 9 months ago by blondie70
Since I have just reread The White Nile and The Blue Nile I thought this would be interesting. We have been to Egypt twice. Am not thru with the DVD yet. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Janet Johnson
Lumley presents four episodes of her journey "up" the Nile. The first episode is unbearably bad (I've already done that part of the journey so I know all she missed). Read morePublished 21 months ago by hh
