Overview

While the crisis in the western region is devastating, the end to civil war in the south has inspired a spirit of optimism in Sudan.
This is a land of delightful contrast, boasting desert caravans, lush river valleys and more pyramids than Egypt itself. It offers the intrepid visitor a fulfilling cultural experience in one of Africa's most hospitable countries.
Paul Clammer shows in this, the first comprehensive guide to Sudan, that beyond troubled Darfur lies an extraordinary country, and a culture of kindness to strangers. Discover the archaeological riches of Kush and Nubia, scuba dive in the Red Sea, or relax on a Nile cruise through colorful Khartoum.

Inside you will find information on:

* Security, visas and border crossings
* Where to stay and eat, and how to get around
* Detailed coverage of culture and history
* Sudan's civil war in context, and information for aid workers
