Discovering Sudan: A Unique Travel Experience

Sudan is a country in Northeast Africa that has a rich cultural heritage and a diverse landscape. Despite being a relatively unknown destination for many travelers, it offers a unique experience for those who venture there. If you're considering a trip to Sudan, here's what you need to know.

Getting There
The easiest way to get to Sudan is by air, and the country has several international airports. Khartoum International Airport is the busiest and is served by several airlines, including Emirates, Turkish Airlines, and Ethiopian Airlines. From there, you can take domestic flights to other parts of the country or travel by road.

Visa Requirements
Most visitors to Sudan require a visa, and it's advisable to obtain one before you arrive in the country. You can apply for a visa at a Sudanese embassy or consulate in your home country, or you can apply online through the Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.

Culture and Language
Sudan is a predominantly Muslim country, and it's essential to respect local customs and dress modestly, particularly in more conservative areas. Arabic is the official language, but there are over 100 other languages spoken throughout the country.

Things to See and Do
Sudan has a rich cultural heritage, and there are many historic sites and landmarks to explore. The ancient city of Meroë, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to more than 200 pyramids and is a must-see for any visitor to the country. The capital city, Khartoum, is also worth exploring, with its bustling markets, museums, and historic landmarks.

Sudan also offers some unique outdoor experiences. The Red Sea coast is a popular destination for diving and snorkeling, with pristine coral reefs and abundant marine life. The Sahara Desert covers much of the country, and you can take guided tours to explore its vast sand dunes and rugged landscapes.

Traveling to Sudan can be a rewarding experience, but it's essential to plan your trip carefully and be aware of any security risks. With its rich cultural heritage and diverse landscape, it offers a unique and unforgettable experience for those who venture there.

Tour: Iraqi Kurdistan
My recent trip in Iraq organized by Penguin was excellent from start to end. Both Penguin tour guide (Nessi) and the local guide (Fahad) managed all topics efficiently and facilitated an amazing experience for the group. Now I dream about visiting the Northern part of the country, too.


Tour: Socotra Island Adventures (Yemen)
Thanks for everything in terms of your work and help with this trip to Yemen. It was an amazing experience - one I would recommend to almost anyone. By the numbers of people who travelled to the island, it is only going to get more exposure. The local company was very good - so you can have no problems with them at all. I was really lucky though - there were only 2 of us on the trip - and it was a really nice experience. I will continue to work with Penguin in getting ideas for great places to travel.
