Editorial Reviews

As seen on public television

“Captivating” —Daily Mail (U.K.)
“Enchanting journey” —The Sun (U.K.)

“Inspiring” —The Observer (U.K.)
“Evocative” —The Sunday Times (U.K.)

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.

I'm not the greatest fan of documentary type films, but this was great! Educational, entertaining and inspiring. Thank you, Joanna and the BBC!

This is a quest for the Nile's source, a trek originating at the Mediterranean Sea. Travel is southward--up the Nile. A premier level travelogue, and the tour narrator and guide is Joanna Lumley. She makes it an adventure with comedy. The Nile's over 4000 miles, and the film account of the journey covers African countries of Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Rwanda. Educational, as well as fascinating entertainment. Excellent film footage. Kudos to the overtaxed camera team. Some, like one man met on the journey, may remember Lumley as a Bond Girl in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (1969).

SDH SUBTITLES available for all 4 episodes
1. Alexandria to Cairo via train, then by camel to Giza and the pyramids. Travel continues by luxury cruise ship followed by meager accommodations on a barge. Visits include a date farmer and a man who tells of the demons on the Nile.

2 A ferry crossing of Lake Nasser takes Joanna and viewers into Wadi Halfa and Sudan. It is a less accommodating adventure through these parts compared to that experienced in Egypt (Ep. 1). See Nobian dessert crocodiles, mountains, tomb of a queen, and modern-day desert nomads.

3. At the point where the two Niles meet (White Nile and Blue Nile) Joanna learns a secret of the area. She then heads to Lake Tana, Ethiopia, and the Simien Mountains. Even watch a car wash--Nile style. A ceremony at the location of the Blue Nile's source.

4. Joanna flies over the world's largest swamp (Sudd) and meets a beauty queen, a Rhino sanctuary in Uganda, and then joins with adventurer Cam McLeay in the final quest--the Nile's source in the Rwanda mountains. In 2006 McLeay was part of the team that discovered the longest source of the Nile, a 3199 mile river, the world's longest.

I loved watching this video. My wife and I have been to Egypt twice but never to the rest of the NIle countries. The other counties were fascinating but I do not believe I would want to take the same boat rides that she did. We have been to five countries in the south of Africa so we have experienced many of the cultural aspects of these countries.

We found her narrative fascinating and very enjoyable. It is very enlightening! I highly recommend this video!!!!
