The problem of steady internal waves in a weakly stratified two-layered fluid is studied analytically. We discuss the model with a constant density in lower layer and exponential stratification in the other one. The long-wave approximation using a scaling procedure with small Boussinesq parameter is constructed. The nonlinear ordinary differential equation describing large amplitude solitary waves and internal bores is obtained.
