The Nile River, Egypt

Just like we all know so well from our geography classes in school, the river Nile is the longest river on the earth (though some scientists believe that the Amazon river with its small subjected rivers should be actually considered the longest one). The river is located in the northeastern part of the African continent and flows right along the shores of the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea, meeting the Mediterranean Sea near the Egyptian city of Cairo. The Nile has historically been considered a sacred river, which has fluctuating levels of water and thus helps those who live near the river to survive in the harsh conditions of the African climate. The Nile flows across 11 African countries and is considered one of the most 'international' rivers on the planet. Its length is estimated to total 4,258 miles or 6,853 km, and in some places the Nile goes as wide as 2 miles.
For many years there has been a mystery where the river of the Nile takes its source from. Many enthusiasts and travelers spent weeks and months trying to find out where the river comes from. So did the famous hosts of the show Top Gear in one of their epic episodes. It is generally considered that Lake Victoria, one of the largest lakes of the continent, should be taken as the source of the Nile. There are many tributaries and wonderful miracles of nature like waterfalls that can be observed in the river area. Historically, the Nile played a key role in the whole development of the African continent as it has been marking the area of civilizations like the Ancient Egyptian one, the Mesopotamian civilization, and other ethnic groups.
