As the voyage of Lane continued, Nubia started at the First Cataract that contains Nubian people who were distinctive in their lands. This type of people where observed by Lane, in which he found as well the distinction of Nubia to Egypt in terms of ethnicity and language. However, the Nubian study was just part of Lane's voyage; after some time, they arrived in Wadi Halfa, where Lane spent a whole day looking around the area. Wadi Halfa was not Lanes' main destination, but the Second Cataract. Despite the unavailability of the camel which should have been used to reach the cataract, Lane walked ten miles to get there surpassing the heat of the sun. This chapter also discusses the different types of people met by Lane during this voyage.
