The world’s longest river, the Nile’s water is shared by 11 countries, ending in Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea. Its main tributaries, the Blue and the White Niles, meet just north of Khartoum.

Nile fishermen sail for at least an hour towards an island off the coast of the capital, before throwing their nets into the water and waiting for the day’s catch.
