What's the longest in Mauritius? The caveat doesn't have it and the quiz doesn't either. Also, it was really fun typing "nile" and having five countries come up.

Looks like I accidentally skipped Mauritius when making this quiz. A quick glance at Wikipedia suggests that Rivière du Tombeau is possibly the longest. I'll update the quiz when I can more thoroughly verify that.
