Cruising at high altitude over Egypt brings us to Khartoum in Sudan, where the White Nile meets the Blue Nile.

We will be cruising at the high altitude of 5000ft, hopefully the weather will be good enough so we can see from the above, how massive the continent of Afrika is. At Khartoum the White Nile, coming north from Lake Victoria meets the Blue Nile from Ethiopia where combined arms form a new River Nile flowing north to Egypt. The location where the two Niles meet is known as “al-Mogran“, meaning the confluence.
