  • SUDAN, THE OLD KINGDOM OF BLACK PHARAOHS
     
    Decades of conflict have kept travelers away, but Sudan is preparing to astonish the world. Witness the sunrise at the golden pyramids of ancient Nubian deities, cross the desert visiting villages lost in time, explore the two Niles meeting in Khartoum and photograph a million multicolored fishes blending in coral forests. Looking from any perspective, it is clear that amongst dunes and pyramids are treasures that the rest of the world is just beginning to discover.
     
    Venture north to the ancient desert cities that line the Nile, and discover the wealth of hidden treasures: pyramids, tombs and ancient ruins provide a fascinating glimpse of the powerful kingdoms that thrived on this arid soil. Experience the legendary hospitality of Sudan, where just a smile and a few Arabic words open the doors to the warmth of Sudanese people - according to the most experienced travelers, unparalleled across the globe.
     
    For the few who venture out, Sudan is a memorable experience. Even with the conflicts and isolation that kept Sudan away from the rest of the world, it is always one of the favorite destinations for those who have already had the privilege to visit. With new winds of democracy and integration, Sudan is back on the map - promising to become one of Africa's biggest attractions.
