The Nile River's source is at Jinja, Uganda, where Lake Victoria begins to flow to the northwest. At Murchison Falls, the river pours through a 7 meter-wide gap while plunging about 45 meters. From there, it begins to flow northward, into Sudan. At Khartoum, it meets up with a branch from Ethiopia (the Blue Nile) and continues into Egypt.

I know I haven't really posted anything about Uganda, and it was an experience that warrants a few different posts. I need to make the time to do some thinking about which particular experiences I will relate here. In the meantime, here's a video I took at Murchison Falls, a tremendous waterfall on the Nile River in northwestern Uganda.
