Sudan is one of the largest countries in Africa and over the centuries has attracted many intrepid explorers in search of the hidden treasures of the Nubian Desert. Its vast desert and rocky landscape is sparsely populated with small towns and transient nomads. The capital city Khartoum sits at the confluence of the White and Blue Nile, and is a chaotic mix of dusty streets, bustling souks and welcoming locals. The lush Nile Valley hides lost Turkish and Roman cities and ancient pharaonic tombs.
For the more adventurous traveller, our small group tours uncover this vast and intriguing North African country. Starting in Khartoum all our tours explore the barren beauty of the Nubian Desert. From the forgotten pyramids at Meroe to the holy mountain of Jebel Barkal, we sleep under the starry desert skies and spend time learning the culture of the local inhabitants. You'll also cruise on the River Nile and explore the mazy souks and dusty museums of Khartoum. All our Sudan group tour itineraries can also be customised and arranged as private tours if you prefer. Overall we feel Sudan truly offers a completely unique travel experience and if you're looking for a really out of the ordinary holiday experience, with very few other tourists around to share it with you, then Sudan is a great option.
Note - none of our tours visit South Sudan and we follow official government travel advice at all times.
Once the largest and one of the most geographically diverse states in Africa, Sudan - located just south of Egypt - is a treasure just waiting to be explored. Sharing a border with the Central African Republic, Uganda, Kenya, Libya, Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Ethiopia, visiting Sudan is a memorable experience. Read more...
