Tailor Made Adventure Holidays and Group Tours in Sudan
Sudan boasts a wealth of historical and cultural attractions that would attract huge crowds of tourists anywhere else. With more pyramids than its better known neighbour to the north, the ancient monuments of Sudan represent some of the continent’s most incredible architectural achievements but are largely ignored by travellers. At Undiscovered Destinations we have put together a selection of group tours that encompass some of the highlights of this amazing nation. Camp out in deserts, explore pyramids, temples and royal tombs (and more than likely have them all to yourself!) and immerse yourself in the history of the Pharoahs. Or – on one of our most incredible adventures yet – head to the Nuba villages and mountains south of Khartoum for a truly untouched corner of Africa, meeting people who have almost no concept of tourism, on a truly pioneering journey that redefines the concept of adventure travel.

Sudan – Nile Valley and Western Desert
The history of Sudan stretches back thousands of years, to a time when they rivalled Pharaonic Egypt as a powerful civilisation. On this small group adventure, we explore some the highlights of Sudan’s little known ancient monuments on this tour, visiting collections of pyramids that few people even know exist and old temples lying in the desert sands. This trip takes in some of the most beautiful areas of Sudan, from its deserts to the mighty Nile, lifeblood of the country, and by camping in this amazing landscape we gain a real sense of the overwhelming power of nature.
