Here are just a few reasons why the Nile should be the first stop on a history fan’s next holiday:
Bringing culture together for thousands of years
For those who love classic geography, travelling the Nile can provide insight into what nature can provide. Competing with the Amazon as one of the longest and most significant rivers in existence, the Nile has been the primary water source and place of travel for the people of many of Africa’s beautiful countries, including Egpyt and the Republic of Sudan. Providing farming and communication as well, the Nile’s history has made it a natural place for trade, living and working, building a history that can be felt when travelling on its waters.
The founding of Ancient Egyptian culture
According to the famous Greek historian Herodotus, “Egypt was the gift of the Nile.” In other words, the sustenance, greenery and bounty the Nile has made available to one of the most well-known ancient civilisations have ensured that the culture was able to grow, thrive and develop links with many other countries. When it comes to relics of the ancient world, the Nile outdates the pyramids, sphynx and all other monuments.
Not only that, but the Nile was a crucial part of spiritual life for the ancient culture, providing a sacred location of both life and death, watched over by many deities. If you’re looking to experience a place that has an incredibly intriguing history, the banks of the Nile hold it all.
