Khartoum Sudan Attractions
An African country plagued by military conflict and violence: Sudan has many beautiful things to discover on the road to democracy. Sudan is often overlooked by travellers, but you should not be surprised to hear that someone uses their day off to visit one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The East African country has impressive credentials and is definitely worth living off the beaten track.
Sudan also enjoys an ancient civilization, which is a major tourist attraction and worth a visit if you are welcomed by the locals. The Sudan Ethnographic Museum is also located in Khartoum and offers a comprehensive overview of Sudanese history. Despite its small size, it is fascinating and can be explored on its own.
The museum is located in an area of Khartoum called Auguram, near the place where the Blue Nile meets the White Nile.
It is 39 km southwest of Port Sudan and is the only developed summer resort in Sudan and a popular destination for tourists from all over the world as well as for locals.
Sudanese cities such as Port Sudan, Wad Medani and Kassala are connected to the southern part of Sudan by well-developed buses. Sudan Airways, the national airline, operates flights to Khartoum, Darfur, Juba, Kordofan and the other major cities in the south of the country. In addition to KhARTOUM, there are two major airports in Sudan - Khartsoum International Airport and Carmel Airport, both operated by Sudan Airlines, and both are served by Sudan National Airline (SNA) and Sudan International Airlines (SudanIA) flights to and from Cairo and Dubai. Also served port Sudan is the Port Uganda International Airport, a terminal for flights from Sudan to Cairo, Dubai, which are operated from the port of Kortod as well as to and from Portuba and other international airports.
If you manage to get there, the temples are among the most beautiful in Sudan, and visiting the amazing art and craft museums will be worth the time to do some incredible sightseeing in Khartoum. If museums are not your thing, you can still enjoy the wide selection of restaurants, bars, shops, cafes and restaurants in the city, offering a wide selection of food and drinks as well as a variety of entertainment options. Don't forget that there are also a large number of hotels, restaurants and bars to choose from.
Get to know ancient Sudan and the religious side of Khartoum and get to know the Kushite era of the country, which took place in Nubia, Sudan and Egypt. The central area of Sudan (including Sennar and Sinja) is home to some of the most beautiful temples in the world, as well as a variety of art and craft museums. Take a visit and some sightseeing while in KhARTOUM and learn more about the history of this country and its ancient history.
In Khartoum you can also visit the National Museum of Sudan, the Sudan Museum and the museums of Egypt and Sudan.
Kartoum is one of three twin towns built on the confluence of the blue and white Nile. The Blue Nile starts at Lake Tana in Ethiopia and flows into the White Nile, which is long and runs through Central Africa. In Sudan, the Nile flows into the Red Nile on the border between Sudan and Egypt and flows through Khartoum and Bahri. It is well distributed and huge and consists of two cities: KhARTOUM (Omdurman Bhari) and Khartsou m North, both of which are located on either side of the Nile.
Trains from Wadi Halfa (Port Sudan) run from the main terminal in Khartoum to the north and Bahri to KhARTOUm. Atbara is located at the confluence of the Red and White Nile rivers in Sudan and flows through Ethiopia. It is the second largest city in the country and is home to a large number of tourist attractions. The route is difficult and potentially dangerous and requires off-road vehicles, but it is a short walk from At Barbarabe to the border with Ethiopia and a long drive from Khartsoum.
For travelers with leisurely travel times, combining Sudan with a visit to its northern neighbor Egypt is a great option. You don't have to go all the way to Egypt to see the pyramids, but if you really want an incredibly different and peaceful journey to Africa, I strongly recommend a visit to Sudan. Anyone travelling to the US via Sudan will know that the two-hour flight to the north hurts.
I strongly recommend visiting the National Museum of Sudan to see the artifacts found at archaeological sites in Sudan and to take stock of the country's long and complex history. The museum in Khartoum offers visitors the opportunity to go back in time and get an insight into Sudanese village life.
Located in the centre of the Nile, Tuti Island is an urban retreat from Khartoum, but there is not much to do in this industrial and railway city. Renting a taxi to drive to this peaceful enclave is a nice afternoon activity, and many travelers pass by on their way to the capital.
