Wadi Al-Malik

Wadi Al-Malik is the bed of an extinct river in Sudan. Following the Central African Shear Zone, it is stretching for 560 km from the lake of Umm Badr in North Kurdufan NE-trending to the great bend of the Nile near Al Dabbah.[1] It gives its name to the geological Wadi Milk Formation.
