Nile River Cruise
Nile River Cruise: one of the world longest and important rivers
The Nile is the most important north-flowing river in north-eastern Africa, as well as considered the longest river in the world, with its 6,650 km. It runs through no less than ten countries including Sudan, South Sudan, Burundi, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Egypt. The northern section of the river flows almost entirely through desert, from Sudan into Egypt, a country whose civilization has depended on the river since ancient times. Most of the population and cities of Egypt lie along those parts of the Nile valley north of Aswan, and nearly all the cultural and historical sites of Ancient Egypt are found along the riverbanks. The Nile ends in a large delta that empties into the Mediterranean Sea.
