The width of the river Nile varies considerably, depending on how far away it is from its source, and on the the current season.

The part of the river that runs north from Aswan in Egypt to the delta at the Mediterranean Sea is considered the most important stretch of the Nile.

Here, the greatest number of people rely upon the river for food and transportation - and this section measures 2.8km wide on average.

The widest stretch stands at 7.5km wide and can be found at Edfu, which is also in Egypt.

At its narrowest, the river is squeezed down to a seven-metre-wide passage at Murchison Falls in Uganda.

The River Nile, the Longest River in the World
The river Nile is the longest river in the world, at 4,132 miles. It is actually composed of three separate rivers: The Blue Nile, the White Nile, and the Nile itself. The two tributaries converge to form the Nile River near Khartoum in Sudan.

The vast majority (86%) of the Nile's water comes from Lake Tana, in Ethiopia, and is carried along the Blue Nile. The White Nile contributes only 16% of the water, but is longer. Nobody can agree on the location of its most distant source, but it is somewhere in the Great Lakes region, most likely Rwanda or Burundi.
