Sudan

Sudan is a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered. It has the most hospitable and friendly people in Africa, plus it is yet to feel the effects of mass tourism. It is a welcoming, safe and utterly fascinating destination. 

Sudan is Africa's third largest country and there is so much to see and experience, mostly focused on its historical heritge and rich culture. Lying just south of the Great Cataract on the Nile, Sudan has double the number of pyramids that Egypt does and you will pretty much have them all to yourselves.

The pyramids and temples at Meroe are well worth a visit - this is the ancient capital of the Kingdom of Kush, where more than forty kings and queens were buried. As is Jebel Barkal, which can be seen for miles rising out of the plains and it has been a place or worship for centuries.

Highlights of Khartoum are the Whirling Dervish ceremony, the Nuba wrestling and the colourful and bustling Omdurman souq.

On your journey around Sudan, you may well meet isolated groups of Bisharin nomads, who live in small huts made of intertwined branches close to the rare water wells, with their caravans and herds of camels and donkeys. You can stop for a coffee with them and you will be welcomed with open arms.
