Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Reviews of first edition'Best and only dedicated guide to Sudan' – Wanderlust magazine 'It may seem a strange time to be publishing the first guide devoted entirely to Sudan, but hardy travelers have long been discovering the wonders of Africa's largest country so this book is very welcome all the same. Despite the crisis in the currently inaccessible region of Darfur in the west of the country, the author optimistically includes it as well as creating a yearning to see the archaeological treasures of the ancient kingdom of Kush, explore the lmatong mountains, meet the bejeweled women of Kassala market and taste bush – a poor man's alternative to a bean stew.' - The Observer

Soon after their re-conquest of Sudan, the British blew up the tomb to prevent it from becoming a rallying point for disaffected Sudanese. The job was given to ‘Monkey’ Gordon, nephew of the dead general, who completed the job by throwing the Mahdi’s ashes in the river. Kitchener wanted to use the Mahdi’s skull as an inkstand, but decency prevailed and the head was buried at Wadi Haifa.
