THE LONGEST RIVERS IN THE WORLD

There are about 160 longest rivers on Earth. This report includes ten of the longest rivers from the two continents which are Africa and South America. Amazon and Rio Negro are the only from South America while Congo, Kasai, Limpopo, Niger, Nile, Okavango, Orange, and Zambezi are from Africa. The length of the river is not easy to determine because of the many tributaries of the rivers. These rivers are more than 1000 km in length.
