Description: The Blue Nile, a tributary of the River Nile, begins in the mountains of Ethiopia. The Blue Nile of Ethiopia and the White Nile of Uganda become one at Khartum, which means the place where two rivers meet. The two rivers, in their brotherly embrace, continue on as the great River Nile. The River Nile carries precious water and nutrients which produce rich soil and lush crops throughout Africa and Egypt.

true authenticity

by fksi , 03/02/2010

every thing about the blue nile is authentic. it's not to upscale that you feel out of place and not to hood that you would feel uncomfortable. I really enjoyed my self the times I went and will be going again and again.
