For the first time, YPT takes you to Sudan. Often ignored next to Egypt, Sudan is a land of extreme beauty with a history that goes back to the Pharaohs. Come with us as we explore ancient pyramids and necropolises, haggle in busy markets and meet the people of this off-the-tourist-radar country! We will be the first in line to witness history in action as this proud nation rises up after being freed from years of economic sanctions.
During this Sudan tour, we will visit the capital city, Khartoum, and its numerous temples. We will then cross the white Nile and visit the second-biggest city, Omdurman, where we will explore the recent history of the country and the mahdist state which ruled before colonization by the British.
We will then leave the cities in our hired 4WD cars to explore ruins of former glorious empires, including the Christian Kingdom of Makuria, the Necropolis of Napata and last but definitely not least, the pyramids of Meroe. While the pyramids in Egypt are now visited by thousands and thousands each years and can get very crowded, the pyramids of Meroe will be all ours! We shall camp right by them for a truly memorable night!
All Pioneers members will get a discount on this tour, which we expect to sell out very quickly.
If you want to see the other Sudan, why not book our combo with South Sudan?
