The Nile River is also known as the World’s longest river. The name of the River Nile is taken from the Greek word "Nile", which means valley. The source of the Nile River begins in Jinja, Uganda. The flow of this river begins in North-East Africa and passes through the vicinity of the equator until the Safari Desert, and finally empties into the Mediterranean Sea. The Nile River has an area of about 6,700 km, flowing through many countries but mainly in Egypt and Uganda.
