Egypt geography represents that Egypt lies at the northeast corner of African continent on the Mediterranean Sea that lies north of Egypt. Egypt is slightly more than three times the size of Mexico and is bordered by Libya on the west, Sudan on the south and on the east by the red Sea and Israel. Geographically speaking Egypt is divided into two separate unequal land areas: Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt by the northward flowing Nile River, which is the main identity of Egypt geography. Nile River originates from south of the Mediterranean Sea and flows northward and fans out into the sea front between the cities of Alexandria and Port Said. Apart from the Nile River Valley most of the Egypt's landscape part is arid and sandy desert. Egypt also includes part of Sahara and Libyan Deserts. Lower Egypt stretches from the south of present day Cairo to the Nile Delta at Alexandria city, whereas Upper Egypt is a narrow strip of land that stretches from the modern day Aswan to the south of present Cairo.

While some of the mountains, reaching over 8350 feet high, are situated in the south of Sinai Peninsula.

Among the total land of Egypt only 2.92% land is used as the arable land. Frequent droughts, earthquakes, floods during summer season, landslides, and sandstorms are the other features of Egypt geography.
