Through Egypt runs the River Nile starting from the Great Lakes in the heart of Africa, through northern Sudan where the Ethiopian tributaries collecting rain water flows into its main course.
Apart from the Nile Valley, the majority of Egypt’s landscape is sandy deserts.
Egypt is divided into 4 broad regions:
- The Western Desert, which occupies almost 2/3 of the total area.
- The Eastern Desert
- The Sinai Peninsula
- Nile Valley & Delta, which is a very populated area.
