New Valley Governorate or El Wadi El Gedid Governorate (Arabic: محافظة الوادي الجديد [muˈħɑfzah alˈwæːdi alˈjɑˈdiːd], Muḥāfāzah Al Wādī Al Jadīd) is one of the governorates of Egypt. It is in the southwestern part of the country, in Egypt's Western Desert (part of the Sahara Desert), between the Nile, northern Sudan, and southeastern Libya.
Consisting of roughly a third of Egypt's area, this spacious governorate is the country's largest and one of the biggest subnational divisions on the African continent, as well as the world. At 440,098 square kilometers in area, New Valley Governorate is just slightly larger than the country of Iraq. The capital is at the Kharga Oasis.
