Northern Sudan hides some extraordinary archaeological gems set in stunning desert surroundings. Be amongst the first to explore the sights of Karima, and the Pyramids of Meroe. Travel through the country along the Nile and through the desert past Bedouin encampments, ruined temples, wells and date palm oases. Explore the pretty painted Nubian villages and colourful markets in the north and stay in comfortable lodges and camps as well as experiencing a night or two under a star filled desert sky. The country makes an excellent combination tour with either Ethiopia or Egypt.
