The Search for the Niger.


From the dawn of time the Nile was a river without a source. The Niger a source without a river. It rose in the uplands of Senegambia, but where did it go?.Some said that it simply evaporated into the sands of the Sahara!.Others that it empties itself into Lake Chad. No one concieved the extraordinary possibility that it could flow North-East to the Southern edge of the Sahara,then East for 200 miles, before turning on to its immence South-Easterly stretch to reach the sea, in a complex of rivers, that poured their waters into the Bight of Biafra, 2000 miles South-East of its source. The author here tells an exciting story.
