  1. 1. The River Nile
  2. 2. Facts Of River Nile The length of the River Nile is approximately 6650 kilometres (4132 miles).It is believe to be the longest river in the world. The River Nile played an important role in shaping the lives and society of Ancient Egypt. The Nile provided the Ancient Egyptians with food, transportation, building materials, and more.
  3. 3. Where is River Nile located? The River Nile is located in Africa,the River Nile lies in the following countries:Kenya,Eritrea,Congo,Burundi,Uganda,Tanzania, Rwanda,Egypt,Sudan,Ethiopia and leads into the lake Victoria.
  4. 4. What animals live in River Nile?  There are quite a number of animals that live in or around the environs of the Nile River. Most of the animals that live in the river are reptiles. Some of the animals include frogs, fish, snakes, crocodiles, hippos and water birds like herons and cranes.
  5. 5. How old is the River Nile? Geologist believe that the river Nile was formed sometime in the Tertiary period. This means that it was formed around 35 million years ago. The Nile River was formed from the White Nile and the Blue Nile. They are not real sure the specifics on exactly how it was formed. It is believed that stand and running water caused.
  6. 6. River Nile Source The Nile River emerges from its major tributaries, the White Nile and Blue Nile which merge to form the river Nile near Khartoum, Sudan, at a place known as 'al-Mogran'. River Nile is a major north-flowing river in north-eastern Africa, generally regarded as the longest river in the world, it is 6,650 km (4,130 miles) long.
  7. 7. ?Which is the Blue Nile and White Nile?
  8. 8. Blue Nile According to materials published by the Ethiopian Central Statistical Agency, the Blue Nile has a total length of 1,450 kilometres (900 mi), of which 800 km (500 mi) are inside Ethiopia. The Blue Nile flows generally south from Lake Tana and then west across Ethiopia and northwest into Sudan. Within 30 kilometres (19 miles) of its source at Lake Tana, the river enters a canyon about 400 kilometres (250 miles) long. This gorge is a tremendous obstacle for travel and communication from the north half of Ethiopia to the southern half. The power of the Blue Nile may best be appreciated at Tis Issat Falls, which are 45 metres (148 ft) high, located about 40 kilometres (25 miles) downstream of Lake Tana.
  9. 9. White Nile The Kagera River, which flows into Lake Victoria near the Tanzanian town of Bukoba, is the longest feeder river for Lake Victoria, although sources do not agree on which is the longest tributary of the Kagera and hence the most distant source of the Nile itself. The source of the Nile can be considered to be either the Ruvyironza, which emerges in Bururi Province, Burundi, or the Nyabarongo, which flows from Nyungwe Forest in Rwanda. The two feeder rivers meet near Rusumo Falls on the Rwanda-Tanzania border. The falls are notable because of an event on 28–29 April 1994, when 250,000 Rwandans crossed the bridge at Rusumo Falls into Ngara, Tanzania in 24 hours, in what the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees called "the largest and fastest refugee exodus in modern times". The Kagera forms part of the Rwanda–Tanzania and Tanzania–Uganda borders before flowing into Lake Victoria.
  10. 10. Facts The Nile’s two major tributaries, the White Nile and the Blue Nile, meet at Khartoum, Sudan. Egypt’s population has depended up the Nile for thousands of years. Most of Egypt’s population and settlements lie along the banks of the Nile. The Ancient Egyptians called the Nile, the Great River. It is the longest river in the world. The drainage basin of the Nile covers about one tenth of all of Africa.
  11. 11. Other Facts In 1970 the Aswan Dam was built to generate hydroelectric power and to control the flow of water for irrigation. It has had a significant impact on agricultural practices and has led to flooding and loss of sediment deposits (relied upon by the Ancient Egyptians to make the fields fertile during the summer floods). Some of the largest settlements on the banks of the Nile are: Cairo, Khartoum, Aswan and Luxor. The Nile River is bridged in many places The northern section of the river flows mainly through an area of desert.
