NILE RIVER

Nile River is one of the longest rivers in the world and it is located in the North-Eastern part of Africa. The word "Nile" comes from the Greek name "Neilos" meaning "river valley". Nile River runs from Lake Victoria to Sudan through Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, and Egypt where it empties into the Mediterranean Sea [14]. The river flows down-hill in the South then it goes through the mountains in the middle of Africa then finally it empties into the Mediterranean Sea. The river is divided into Blue and White Nile. The White Nile runs from equatorial East of Africa and the Blue Nile runs from Ethiopia. The soil along the river banks of Nile is very fertile so it is used for cultivation. The Nile River supply people with water and fertile soil for farming. Farmers mostly plough plants such as wheat, cotton and many more [15].
