Nile Map

The Nile has two major tributaries, the White Nile and Blue Nile. The latter is the source of most of the water and fertile soil. The former is the longer. The White Nile rises in the Great Lakes region of central Africa, with the most distant source in central Burundi. It flows north through Rwanda, Tanzania, Lake Victoria, Uganda and southern Sudan. The Blue Nile starts at Lake Tana in Ethiopia and flows into Sudan from the southeast. The two rivers meet near the Sudanese capital of Khartoum.

The source of the Nile is sometimes considered to be Lake Victoria, but the lake has feeder rivers of considerable size. The most distant stream—and thus the ultimate source of the Nile—emerges from Bururi Province in Burundi, via the Ruvyironza and Kagera rivers, before flowing into Lake Victoria in Tanzania near the town of Bukoba.

Life is one big learning experience. The scope is unlimited. Thanks for your prompt Geoff.
