Sudan is the largest country in north Africa. It lies directly to the south of Egypt. The Nile river and its tributaries are the life of
this very hot desert country. People have lived in Sudan for thousands of years farming by the Nile and herding livestock.
Today, Sudan has a population of about 35 million people.
