Sudan (North)

Sudan (North) Accommodation



Accommodation is not plentiful in Sudan (there is not much in the way of safari lodges or resorts), but there is nevertheless a good and growing range that stretches from the luxury to the gloriously basic to the utterly wild.

For luxury, Khartoum offers the deluxe 5 star modernity of the Corinthia Hotel or the more colonial, historic-feeling The Holiday Villa. Outside the city, half-way up the Nubian Nile, is Nubian Rest House, an immaculate boutique hotel staffed by friendly locals. For an experience of the remote wilds of the country there are a range of options including lodges and camps, basic yet fully-catered expeditions that take the visitor out into some truly amazing desert vistas.

Sudan offers not only distinctive desert landscapes but a wealth of UNESCO-recognised archaeological sites. The Bayuda Desert in particular is a treat for those who want to enjoy a glimpse of the ancient Bedouin way of life as well as some rare wildlife. Karima is home to a number of remarkable archaeological treasures including the Nuri pyramids and the Temple of Mut, as well as a fossilised forest. Meroe is worth a trip for the Royal Pyramids as well as the remains of the Royal City. Khartoum itself, with its distinctive feel that’s half Africa and half Middle East, is also a delight.
