With more pyramids inside its borders than Egypt, Sudan is a culturally rich destination and has yet to feel the effects of mass tourism. The ancient Egyptians, one-time rulers during the reign of the so-called Black Pharaohs, oversaw the building of some of the finest cities and temples along the Sudanese Nile.
From the ancient pyramid cities of Meroe and Karima, to the natural cataracts of the Nile and the three deserts of northern Sudan – the Bayuda, the Nubian and the Western deserts – this vast and mysterious country cradles unique treasures within a dramatic desert landscape. It is not unusual to have most of the impressive archaeological sites to yourself, providing a sense of what it must have been like to be among the first explorers to visit these spectacular desert landscapes.
