Sudan: Waiting to be Discovered
Little known and little visited, Sudan has been off the tourist radar for many years, but here you will find some astonishing sites - there are more ancient pyramids than in Egypt, for example - and a warm and friendly welcome.
Travel through the ever-changing colours of the vast Sahara Desert to see the glorious archaeological site of Meroe, with its stunning Royal Necropolis, explore Nubian villages with their distinctive and unique flower-patterned houses, take a motorboat cruise on the Nile to experience the life of Sudanese people, and wander throught the souk at Omdurman.
Khartoum, situated at the confluence of the White and Blue Niles, is the gateway to the country. Outside the capital, good quality accommodation has traditionally been hard to find, but our partner company has built their own camp at Meroe and a lovely Rest House near Jebel Barkal offering ensuite rooms and excellent standards of food and service.
A small group tour with set departures operates in the winter months (October to April). We can also offer tailor made arrangements for individuals.
