The barren sands of Sudan have secrets to tell in voices worn weary by the passage of time. Known by the Greeks as Aithiopia (Ethiopia) and by the Egyptians as Kush, this desert region was a flourishing center of trade and culture for centuries, facilitated by the coursing of the mighty Nile River. From the confluence of the Blue and White Niles, to the mystical peaks of Jebel El Barkal, the source of kingship for ancient royalty, you will delve into the past. Stand in awe of the pyramids at Nepata and Meroe, wander the bones of a once great medieval city in the north, and take in the fierce power of the Nile from the walls of an Ottoman fort. Feel yourself stepping back in time with every footprint left in the Sudanese sand.
