Watching 'Walk The Nile' on 4OD reminded me of my backpacking adventure around Egypt in 1990.
Levison Wood and various fellow travelling companions walk the 4000 mile journey from Rwanda where the Nile begins to it's final destination in Egypt where it runs into the Mediterranean Sea.
Journalist Matt Power who was accompanying Levison on part of his journey through Tanzania, became a fatality when he suffered heat stroke and died on March 10th 2014.
It was a gruelling, incredible and very scary adventure. Well worth watching.
