Nile River Cruises

The Nile has long been a household name as the longest river in the world at 6,650 km long. It flows through four different countries in Africa from Uganda to the Mediterranean Sea, though it is best known as a symbol of Egypt. Throughout history, the river has played a key role in all aspect of life –  eleven countries rely on the Nile to live.

In the past,the Nile helped cement important trade routes in Egypt by providing fertile land for crops, and was even the basis for Egypt’s first ideas about how blood flows through the body.
