"Beautiful Nile...the cradle of a civilization" Egypt Favorite Tip by Muya

Egypt General: 631 reviews and 622 photos

  Majestic Nile and Egyptian flag
by Muya

Favorite thing: The Nile has always been vital to Egypt... as the saying goes : Egypt is a gift of the Nile.
One of the longest rivers in the world, the Nile has it’s source around Lake Victoria and then winds its way during 5 584 km through Uganda, Sudan and Egypt, where it streches for 1280 km, before flowing into the Mediterranean Sea. Life pretty much remained the same along its banks since the time pharaoh used to navigate on his ceremonial boat... peasants still work their fields and watch their herds with the same rythm...
