Joanna Lumley is absolutely enchanting in this trip down the Nile. She is amazingly sweet with everyone she meets, and brings out the best in her many new acquaintances. Her humor is never over the top , but subtle and it fits with lighter moments. This is woven with facts in a nice blend. Often Joanna is the only woman in the places she travels in the first part of the film but she is a great sport about it, and it is obvious that she is treated with respect and reverence. Then in the second part she attends a wedding and meeting many women, and later encourages young girls at a dinner to follow their dreams to be athletes. They show her their medals with pride. She also meets a woman who is going to crown Miss Malaika in Southern Sudan, where attitudes towards woman are relaxed. Lumley has a wonderful way of connecting with locals, and of admiring the beautiful nature and seasons. The Nile is brought to life in this enchanting voyage.
