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.
