The Nile River, generally regarded as the longest river in the world, can be seen making its way through Egypt (above) and Sudan (below) in this image of northern Africa. Here, the stretch of the river from Lake Nasser (above) to the confluence of its two major tributaries, the White Nile and Blue Nile, near Khartoum (below).

Upon opening the full image, two other segments of the great river can be observed. The first is a part of the river north of Lake Nasser, surrounded by fertile green land. The second is south of Khartoum, and includes the agricultural land of the Gezira Scheme.
