Essentials in Sudan
Sufi Dances: If you are in Khartoum on a Friday evening then don’t miss the chance to see the Sufi dancing and drumming before sunset and Friday prayers. The ritual dancing takes place northwest of the Nile in Omdurman.
Meroe: The pyramids of Meroe are a must. You’ll find them 2.5 hours drive north of Khartoum with a Sudan car hire. On the way you’ll pass Naqa and Musawarat which have interesting ruins as well.
Port Sudan: Port Sudan is a hot spot on the Red Sea with a beautiful harbour and boardwalk overlooking the port. The area has some really great snorkelling and scuba diving.
