Top Gear Africa Special — Best Moments

The Africa Special is a Top Gear special in which Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May attempt to find the true source of the River Nile in secondhand estate cars on a budget. The team traveled through Central Africa to achieve this goal, starting in Uganda and traveling through Rwanda to reach their final destination in Tanzania.

As the boys travel eastwards, our motoring trio are stopped by a river and realise it is too deep to wade through with their cars, especially since there are crocodiles lurking within it. Jeremy comes up with the idea of making their own car-ferry, designed specifically to take their cars across the river, (similar to one they had seen in Albania) using wood and rope.
