“The trip notes for day 1 are not current; one museum is closed and has been for a while as such we ended up visiting places I had already seen on my own. If I had know I could have gone to different places on my first couple of days before the tour started not a deal breaker but it was irksome.”

“I normally travel on my own and was therefore apprehensive about travelling with a group. Two points I would make. Firstly I enjoyed it immensely. Secondly it was not a trip that would not have been easy to replicate solo.”

Sudan - Travel Highlights and Travel Tips

Visiting the country of Sudan is no easy feat, given the destination’s reputation for a difficult visa application process. If you are fortunate enough to secure a tourist visa, your visit to Sudan is bound to be an enjoyable one - so long as you avoid the country’s more dangerous areas. Sudan has faced civil war for the greater part of the last 40 years; however, its diverse people are incredibly hospitable and will work hard to make your experience unforgettable.

Tour Highlights

  • Explore the tombs and ancient history of the Meroe pyramids
  • Take in the spiritual atmosphere of the Sufi trance dancing, occurring in Khartoum around one hour before sunset
  • Have a picnic on the banks of Tuti island and see where the White Nile and the Blue Nile meet
  • Discover Egyptian and Ottoman ruins left behind on Sai Island
  • Visit Dinder National Park to try and spot giraffes and leopards in the wild

Travel Tips

  • To stay safe on your visit to Sudan, avoid travelling through western and southern Sudan - particularly the city of Darfur. Always check with your country’s travel authority for the most up-to-date travel information.Alcohol is illegal in Sudan, so don’t be caught trying to import it - you can be severely punished.
  • Before making plans to travel to Sudan, bear in mind that you will not be granted entry if your passport shows entry stamps or visas for Israel (or if you are an Israeli citizen). While you can get a visa on arrival, it is always recommended to secure one in your home country.
  • English is not widely spoken in Sudan (except among the older generations, oddly enough), so it’s best to brush up on some general Arabic before your visit.
  • ATMs are almost non-existent in Sudan, and the ones that exist do not accept international bank cards. Be sure to bring adequate money with you to avoid being stuck cashless.
