Sudan

SUDAN HOLIDAYS & TOURS

One of Africa's largest countries, the vast deserts and rocky landscapes of Sudan have always attracted intrepid explorers looking to discover the secrets of the ancient civilisations and ruins found within the Nubian desert. From the dusty old streets and the bustling souks of the capital city Khartoum to the beauty of the Nile Valley, home to Egyptian tombs and lost Turkish and Roman cities, Sudan offers a completely unique travel experience.

Join one of our small group tours as we explore this vast and mysterious North African country. Starting in Khartoum all of our tours explore the untamed beauty of the Nubian Desert as we travel through strange rock formations and forgotten temples on the way to the black pyramids of Meroe and the holy mountain of Jebel Barkal. Enjoy tranquil nights sleeping under the stars in our desert camps or learn more about the local people and culture when spending the night in a traditional Nubian house.

TOUR REVIEWS

There was a lot of communication from the beginning. The encounters staff was very responsive and the tour guide was great and very accommodating. Encounters was also able to help me with last minute changes to my itinerary while I was on the trip.

Took care of every single detail from prior to our arrival in Cario until we we're dropped of at the airport a week later. Our hotels, tours, meals, and tour group we're all wonderful. Our tour guide was wonderful!
The price was great and the people wonderful!

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
Everything was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and liked that we were interested in what he was telling us. We were lucky to be in a group with like minded people who also wanted to stay in places longer of which our guide accommodated. Only negative thing was the sitting train. Best to just take the flying option. Train was not bad but has no services, no alcohol, and breakfast was all carbs and an egg. Egypt really seems to like their breads and pastries....

I had an amazing time on the trip. Everything was incredibly well organized and planned out to a tee. Our tour guide, Big Mo, was amazing and super knowledgeable. I couldn't have imagined a better trip to Egypt!
Excellent

We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.
