Khartoum

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Khartoum: Omdurman (Khalifa House Museum, Tomb of Muhammad Ahmad (Madhi), &more). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Sudan National Museum, explore the different monuments and memorials at Khartoum War Cemetery, get engrossed in the history at Ethnographic Museum, and browse the different shops at Afra Mall.

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.
