The River Nile, flowing through Africa, is one of the two longest
rivers on Earth.
ABOUT NILE RIVER
The word Nile comes from the word Neilos, a Greek name for the Nile.
Another Greek name for the Nile was Aigyptos, which itself is the
source of the name Egypt.
Cities situated on the banks of the Nile include Khartoum, Aswan,
Luxor and the Giza-Cairo conurbation. The Nile north of Aswan is
a regular tourist route, with cruise ships and traditional wooden
sailing boats known as feluccas strrewn all over the coast. In addition,
many "floating hotel" cruise boats ply the route between
Luxor and Aswan.
There is only a single cruise liner, Abercrombie & Kent that
