Khartoum

— 4 nights
Situated at the meeting point of the White and Blue Niles, the sprawling capital Khartoum captivates with its welcoming atmosphere, chaotic marketplaces, and extravagant skyline punctuated with glass towers.
Sudan National Museum and Khalifa House Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Appreciate the collections at Mojo Gallery and Sudan Art Diwan. Change things up with a short trip to Tomb of Muhammad Ahmad (Madhi) in Omdurman (about 34 minutes away). There's still lots to do: browse the different shops at Afra Mall, head off the coast to Tuti Island, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Al Kabir Mosque, and don't miss a visit to Nile Street.

To see reviews, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Khartoum trip builder website.

Stockholm, Sweden to Khartoum is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Stockholm to Khartoum due to the time zone difference. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Stockholm in June, with highs in Khartoum at 47°C and lows at 34°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sat) so you can go by car to Merowe.

Splitting with South Sudan in 2011, Sudan remains a vast, diverse place. Desert and savannah landscapes dominate much of the north and south, while the east and west are primarily mountainous. Ancient Nubian ruins dot the desert areas in the north, with the section close to the Nile once home to great and powerful kingdoms. The main cities offer an array of interesting and evocative Islamic sites, with many centuries-old mosques and religious schools and market squares--all worthy of addition on a comprehensive Sudan itinerary.
