The Nile River flows out of Lake Nasser and makes its way across Egypt, towards the Mediterranean Sea. As its waters move northward, they become surrounded by a fertile green valley, in contrast with the surrounding desert.

Further east lies the Red Sea, separating Egypt from Saudi Arabia. In between the two countries, and the two continents of Africa and Asia, is the Sinai Peninsula, a peninsula bounded by the Gulf of Suez to the west and the Gulf of Aqaba to the east.
