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.

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....
When a single women in her 50's, traveling from the US to Egypt, stumbles across a website offering a tour, and then they make her feel totaling comfortable about every step of the process, you know you've hit a homerun!
I was pleased and impressed with the experience in booking and obtain all necessary documents in a timely manner. I am looking forward to my tour and hope the ground experience it just as good. This trip is my dream/bucket list trip.
