Features: Find source of the Nile: (BMW 528i Touring • Subaru Impreza WRX Estate • Volvo 850R Estate)
Original air date: March 10, 2013
The trio continue on their search for the source of the River Nile, heading for Tanzania after their initial theory about it being somewhere around Lake Kivu could not be proved based on physical evidence. Now believing that the Nile’s mouth is not at Alexandria but where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean, and that the source must be somewhere east of Lake Victoria, the trio are en route for the Serengeti where they believe the source will be found. In the second part, the presenters brave their way over muddy tracks and rough dirt roads, repairing their cars broken or missing parts with “procured” replacements, while heading towards Tanzania, via Rwanda. Along the way they enjoy stunning scenery, create a ferry to get across a river, cross Lake Victoria with a proper ferry, and begin making their way through the Serengeti, following a river that will lead them to the source, and encountering one more obstacle in the form of a “car-killing” road. Finally, upon making camp for the last time, the trio opt to see who will be remembered and who will be forgotten, by racing against each to see who can find the source of the Nile.
