The Sudan, sometimes called North Sudan after the independence of South Sudan, is bordered by Egypt, the Red Sea, and the Sahara Desert. The Nile River divides the country, which has been independence since 1956. Since 1983, fundamentalist Islamic law has been established in the country.
Letters of invitation are often required for entry into Sudan. Certain travel and photography permits may be required as well.
Because Sudan has been at the heart of ancient empires, dating back to the time of the Egyptian pharaohs, there are numerous fascinating ruins to explore within the country. Large mud brick temples, fortresses from the 12th century BC, and a network of Nubian pyramids have all been discovered in this country.
The ruins of Old Dongola are particularly fascinating. Founded in the 5th century, the granite columns of the church still stand and feature intricate carvings.
Cultural opportunities are an important part of a stay in Sudan as well. In Khartoum or Omdurman, for example, you can experience the Sufi rituals of drumming and dancing before sunset and Friday prayers.
You can also find good diving opportunities around Port Sudan and along some of the Red Sea resorts that are cropping up. You may also fin a tour of Tuti Island, which is right in the middle of the Nile River, can be a fascinating experience.
Sudan offers a challenging political climate, but there are hidden gems that can be found as well. Use common sense with your planning and you may just discover an intriguing opportunity.
