The word cataract is a Greek word καταρρέω ("to flow down") although the original Greek term was the plural-only Κατάδουποι. However, none of the Nile's six primary cataracts could be accurately described as waterfalls, and given a broader definition, this is the same with many of the minor cataracts.

In ancient times, Upper Egypt extended from south of the Nile. Nubia, ancient region in northeastern Africa, extending approximately from the Nile River valley (near the first cataract in Upper Egypt) eastward to the shores of the Red Sea, southward to about Khartoum (in what is now Sudan), and westward to the Libyan is traditionally divided into two regions.

The southern portion, which extended north to the southern end of the second. The Atbara River, the last tributary of the Nile, flows into the main stream nearly miles north of rises in Ethiopia at heights of 6, to 10, feet above sea level, not far from Gonder, to the north of Lake two principal tributaries that feed the Atbara are the Angereb (Arabic: Baḥr Al-Salam) and the Tekezē (Amharic: “Terrible”; Arabic: Nahr Satīt).

Location, Extent and Population: Critically speaking Ethiopia may refer only to the Nile valley above the First Cataract, but in ancient as in modern times the term was often used not only to include what is now known as Nubia and the Sudan (Soudan), but all the unknown country farther West and South, and also at times Northern, if not Southern.

This new, fully updated 8th edition of Bradt's Ethiopia remains the most comprehensive, detailed and thorough guide available, particularly known for its strength of background information, coverage of off-the-beaten track areas, and in-depth details of hotels and other tourist facilities.

It also contains far more maps than other guides. Bradt's Ethiopia is also the longest-serving English Reviews: In Sir Samuel Baker dreamed of the complete control of the Nile by building a single dam above the first cataract at Aswan. Professor Kinfe Abraham wrote in his book, Muhammad Ali who wanted to ensure the security and prosperity of Egypt by controlling the Lake Tana area had tried to use the conquest of the Sudan in as a stepping-stone.
