Egypt is one of the most fertile areas of Africa, and one of the most fertile of the countries around the Mediterranean Sea. Because it is so fertile, people came to live in Egypt earlier than in most places, probably around 40,000 years ago.
Egyptian people lived halfway between places where people have lighter skin, like Germany, and places where people have darker skin, like East Africa. So Egyptians were not either white or black, but somewhere in between.

Contributions of pictures and information to Wild Egypt are most welcome, and I (and our fellow readers, I'm sure) would be thoroughly excited to hear of adventures amongst the animals of Egypt, either by the Nile, in the deserts and valleys, or even diving in the Red Sea.
From the colourful shores of the Nile River to the majestic Red Sea, the land of Egypt teems with animal life, much of it rarely seen by the outside world. But Wild Egypt brings it all to you, and you won't even have to leave your chair. So put on your pith helmets and dig out your khaki pants, we're going on a safari!
