Welcome to Sudan
Sudan, country located in north-eastern Africa. Sudan has a land border to its north by Egypt, to the east by the Eritrea, and Ethiopia, on the south by South Sudan, on the west by the Central African Republic and Chad, and on the north-west by Libya. It has access to the Red Sea on its north west coast.
Sudan is mainly composed of desert, savanna and plateaus that are drained by the Nile River and its tributaries. This river system runs from north to south across the entire length of the east-central part of the country.
Currently almost all foreign offices do not recommend travelling to Sudan.
Many visitors start in the Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, is located roughly in the centre of the country, at the junction of the Blue Nile and White Nile rivers. From there you could travel to the ancient Kingdom of Kush, and walk among the isolated pyramids of Meroë or see the ancient Nubian ruins which dot the desert areas in the north, before travelling to the stunning coast by the Red Sea.
