Sudan is located in the northeast of Africa. Surrounded by nine neighboring countries, it was home to some of the oldest civilisations in the world and is one of the largest African countries. The country consists of two parts, North Sudan and South Sudan. This vast country, especially North Sudan, is an unusual tourist destination. Known for its exquisite natural beauty and cultural attractions, Sudan is a place to look beyond the atlas and the media archives.
Discover the immensity of its deserts, return to the history of its Nubian people and its ancient civilisations, to its nomadic tribes and now to its predominantly Arab population. Everyone is proud to keep the most extraordinary landscapes, from black basalt, volcanic mounds rising from the Bayuda Desert to the proliferation of pyramids, which follow one another in and out of the sands like magnificent mirages. All real and all terribly untouched by tourism. The wealth of its legendary historical sites is worth the detour, in particular the pyramids of Meroe. The geology of the country is also a fascinating attraction to come and admire in Sudan.The legendary Sudanese hospitality is to be emphasised as it will completely be the highlight of your trip. Without forgetting the largest market in Sudan, the Souk of Omdurman where you can easily interact with the local population and stroll through the alleys through the spicy smells.

 

Why travel to Sudan?

For travellers looking for off the beaten track adventures and a unique local immersion, Sudan is the travel destination of choice for your vacation. Sudan is largely Muslim, with an Arab culture dominant in the north and various tribes in the south. The Sudanese are very welcoming and have an excellent reputation for hospitality. As a whole, the country is predominantly flat, with two main upland areas, the Darfur massif to the west, the Red Sea coastal mountains to the east. Sudan offers breathtaking landscapes and remarkable diving sites.Sudan is a year-round destination, but the best time to visit is from September to March, when temperatures are a little more bearable. The lowest being in January, with an average of 30 ° C. However, temperatures can be halved at night from December to February, making travel much more comfortable.

Commitment to sustainable tourism


Sudan is one of the poorest countries in Africa struggling to unlift the value of tourism development in their country to help create opportunities for the people of Sudan. UNWTO together with the World Travel Tourism Council (WTTC) have come together to take it upon themselves to raise awareness for African countries to be able to effectively communicate positive messages to the world about Sudan and other struggling African countries. The crisis communication preparedness in African countries is key to build resilience in Africa as it allows destinations to minimise the impact of critical situations in the tourism sector and thus on its socio-economic benefits. Our commitment is to let tourists explore this beautiful, underestimated beautiful country and help restore visitor adventures in Sudan.
