Egypt is found at the northeast corner of the continent of

AFRICA, but the Suez Canal, which runs north to south inside

of Egypt forms the border between Africa and Asia. Therefore, the

Sinai Peninsula, which is on the east bank of the Suez Canal is in

ASIA, specifically, southwest Asia.

Long story short, mostly in Africa, but a little bit in

No continent is part of Egypt. Egypt is a country. Egypt is

mostly in Africa and is generally considered to be an African

country, but a small part of it is in Asia.
