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.

  • Cross the Nubian Desert to wander the Royal Necropolis of Meroe, the most extensive pyramid field in antiquity.
  • Wonder at the the Meroitic temples of Naqa and Musawwarat, decorated with carvings of rams and wild animals.
