In that same year the epic Roosevelt safari traveled northwest from Kenya by train and steamer, up Lake Kyoga, west along the Victoria Nile to Lake Albert, then up the Albert Nile
to what is known to this day as "Rhino Camp." Here, along the Albert Nile
, in one of the oft-criticized excesses of the day, they took several of the critically endangered northern white rhinos for museum groups.
After leaving Lake Albert, the river is known as the Albert Nile
. It then flows into Sudan, where it is known as the Bahr al Jabal ("River of the Mountain").
About 12,500 years ago the waters of Lake Victoria found a low point at the north edge of the basin, establishing, at Ripon Falls, a permanent outlet down to the western rift valley at the north end of Lake Albert and a connection to the Albert Nile
. Hence, Speke's claim that Lake Victoria is the only source of the Nile is incorrect.
