Sudan is an emerging destination for adventurous travellers, and this new Bradt guide illustrates why it is such a compelling country to visit in its own right. Africa?s largest nation, its varied land features include the Nubian desert, Nile plains and several mountain ranges, whilst the fascinating city of Khartoum is a cultural melting-pot that reflects its Egyptian, Islamic and black African heritage. Sudan also has more pyramids than Egypt! This first dedicated guide to Sudan will satisfy the needs of aid workers, eco-travellers, and those with interests as diverse in topics as archaeology, travel photography, hiking and diving.
- Archaeological sites along the Nile, including pyramid dynasties of Meroe
- Up-to-date information on security, visas and border crossings
- Sudan?s civil war in context, and information for charity workers
