Hi all,

It had been a bit long since I have visited this site. I want  Africa major rivers data ( shape file) for my project work ( specially I  am interested on Nile river). Can any one  direct me for the sources of such data.

There's the Natural Earth Vector dataset, suitable for scales up to 1:10 million.

I've have used http://diva-gis.org/gdata for a map I had to make of the Zambezi.
