Egypt Physical Map Images

The Arab Republic of Egypt is located in North Africa, with the Sinai Peninsula located in Western Asia (the Suez Canal considered the dividing point between Africa and Asia. It is sometimes included in certain definitions of the Middle East, because of it's partial location in Asia. The Mediterranean Sea lies to the north of Egypt, while it borders Libya to the west, Israel and the Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip to the northeast, the Red Sea to the east, and Sudan to the south.

Egypt is quite a large country with an area of 1,001,450 square kilometers (386,660 sq miles), but most of its population of 80 million live near the Nile River and delta, creating a densely populated narrow strip of arable land. The vast desert areas are sparsely populated. Cairo, the massive capital city of Egypt, is both the largest city in Africa and in the entire Arab world.

Egypt`s geography is much more diverse than most people imagine. When I tell people that I`ve gone scuba diving in Egypt, they`re often surprised because they think Egypt is all desert and they don`t picture beaches or ocean. They also don`t picture the mountain peaks of Sinai, or the Nile Delta with its lush gardens and fields, or the numerous heavenly oases found throughout the country. This wondrous variety is one of the things I recommend most about Egypt.

Here you can find an Egypt physical map to become familiar with Egypt's geography.
