  • The 6,700 km-long Nile is the world’s longest river. It has two major sources: the White Nile whose source is Lake Luvironzo near Lake
    Tanganyika, which subsequently flows into Lake Victoria, through Uganda and into the Sudan, and the Blue Nile which rises in the
    Ethiopian highlands. Their confluence is found at Khartoum, from where the river continues to flow northwards into the desert state of
    Egypt and on to its delta in the Mediterranean Sea. The Nile Basin covers an area of 2.9 million km² in extent – about 10% of the African
    continent.
