Below Renk the White Nile enters Sudan, it flows north to Khartoum and meets the Blue Nile. It flows over six groups of cataracts, from the sixth at Sabaloka just north of Khartoum northward to Abu Hamed.

The lake itself is on the border of DR Congo, but the Nile is not a border river at this point.

After leaving Lake Albert, the river continues north through Uganda and is known as the Albert Nile.

Most of the population and cities of Egypt lie along those parts of the Nile valley north of Aswan, and nearly all the cultural and historical sites of Ancient Egypt are found along riverbanks.
