    We are looking for a very wide river, possibly with a shallow bank, which is not in a canyon but in flat parts of the jungle or the low mountains. We need trees and other vegetation in the water because we count a river in flood, where the water ate the land in a natural environment.
    We need visible current, with waves and foam on the surface in the fast style. Better cloudy than clean.
    I can send more specific references if requested

    Hi Lilli,

    The Nile River leaves Lake Victoria at Source of the Nile Jinja and flows north for some 130 kilometers (81 mi), to Lake Kyoga. The last part of the approximately 200 kilometers (120 mi) river section starts from the western shores of the lake and flows at first to the west until just south of Masindi Port, where the river turns north, then makes a great half circle to the east and north until Karuma Falls. For the remaining part it flows merely westerly through the Murchison Falls until it reaches the very northern shores of Lake Albert where it forms a significant river delta. The lake itself is on the border of DR Congo, but the Nile River is not a border river at this point. After leaving Lake Albert, the river continues north through Uganda and is known as the Albert Nile.
    The source of the Nile River is sometimes considered to be Lake Victoria, but the lake has feeder rivers of considerable size. The Kagera River, which flows into Lake Victoria near the Tanzanian town of Bukoba, is the longest feeder.
    Looking forward to hear from you.
