Where does the Nile begin?

The White Nile and Blue Nile merge to form the river Nile near Khartoum, Sudan, at a place known as "al-Mogran". The Nile then flows through Sudan and Egypt before entering the Mediterranean Sea in north-east Egypt.

However, the most distant stream and therefore the ultimate source of the Nile is the Luvironza River in Burundi, a tributary of the Kagera River. The Kagera River forms the border between Rwanda and Tanzania, then between Uganda and Tanzania and then flows into Lake Victoria from which the White Nile emerges in Uganda.
