Join us as we travel through Sudan, the land of the Nubian Pharaohs. The trip route will follow the Nile River, the heartbeat of this arid region delving deep into the history of the ancient Nubian kingdoms that were once part of a thriving trade route for centuries influencing the religion, language, and culture seen today. During this expedition, you will visit archeological sites rarely visited by tourists– pyramids and burial grounds at El-Kurru, Nuri, and Meroe, Old Dongola where Coptic churches once stood, Kerma which was once the capital of the Kingdom of Kush and we will ring in the New Year under the beautiful desert skies!
Tour Highlights:
  • Explore the Royal Necropolis of Meroe and Nuri.
  • Visit the Omdurman souk filled with locally crafted wares.
  • Enjoy a cruise on the Nile- the lifeblood of this desert nation.
  • Drive across the expanse of the Bayuda Desert which played a crucial role in the formation of one of the world’s first civilizations.
  • Take a tour of the capital city of Khartoum.
  • Ring in the new year under the starry desert skies.
