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

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....

The trip was excellent and very well run, we have no complaints it was exactly as we expected.The guide was knowledgable and courteous, it ran on time and accommodation was fine.We have no complaints and have now booked again to go to India.
The trip was as above and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, all destinations were as expected and lived up to our expectations.We went with the idea of visiting Turkey and especially Gallipoli which achieved our goals.The historical part of thetrip was very well done and memmorable.

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.

This is our first travel through Encounters Travel and so far the arrangement is working very well. Our travel is not until April 2017 so I am more than hopeful all will continue to run as smoothly as it has so far.

Everything about the trip was thought through, fine-tuned , and marvelous. From Ant Horribin helping us arrange the trip, to rep Waled Ali, and our guide Big Mo, we could not have asked for a better team. Our sincere thanks to them.
