1.The River Nile
The River Nile is about 6,670 km (4,160 miles) in length and is the longest river in Africa and in the world. Although we think of the River as being part of Egypt, only a 1/5 of it passes through Egypt.
In Egypt, the River Nile creates a fertile green valley across the desert. It was by the banks of the river that one of the oldest civilizations in the world began. The ancient Egyptians lived and farmed along the Nile, using the soil to produce food for themselves and their animals. Hence why it is known as the life of Egypt.
