Which is the longest river in the world?
It’s a close-run thing between the Amazon and the Nile but the ‘Father of African rivers’ is the longest, according to Guinness World Records, at more than 4,130 miles. The river crosses the continent from southeastern Africa, flowing north, and drains into the Mediterranean Sea. The exact length of both the Nile and the Amazon has been a matter of debate, and some say the Amazon is actually longer, depending on what counts as its source. The massive South American river is the largest river by volume and width.
The correct answer is Nile.
