See Sudan's Sights & Discover Its History
Sudan’s sprawling deserts of golden sand hold even more pyramids than Egypt; fallen temples and hidden tombs of a great civilization whose significance we are only beginning to grasp when we visit Sudan. Off-the-radar UNESCO World Heritage sites still partially covered by sand stoke a feeling of deep adventure, as if you're the first to find these archaeological discoveries. Fed by the Nile River, ancient Nubia thrived, producing a pharaonic kingship and the oldest Nilo-Saharan language on record. Today we are delighted to share the incredible Sudan travel sights in its conflict-free north, and the enthusiastic hospitality of our Sudanese friends.
