Egypt, a country linking northeast Africa with the Middle East, dates to the time of the pharaohs. Millennia-old monuments sit along the fertile Nile River Valley, including Giza's colossal Pyramids and Great Sphinx as well as Luxor's hieroglyph-lined Karnak Temple and Valley of the Kings tombs. Egypt has two major deserts, The Sahara and the Libyan Desert covering most parts of the country. Egypt’s Nile River; is the world’s longest river, runs for 6,670 km (4,135 miles).
