Sudan - July 4th, 2011

The Nile, generally regarded as the longest river in the world, has a length of 6,650 km (4,130 miles). It runs through ten countries in Africa: Sudan, South Sudan, Burundi, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Egypt.

This image shows the Nile River flowing northward across (North) Sudan and into Lake Nasser, at the Sudan-Egypt border. The southern reaches of the lake appear greenish and lighter than the northern parts due to the influx of sediments from the river.
