Home to more pyramids than Egypt, the Republic of Sudan is a hauntingly beautiful country with desert landscapes, colorful tribal markets, whirling dervishes, and remote villages—where few travelers ever set foot. It's an Eden for adventurers who want to get away from the crowds and its greatest draws include cultural encounters with nomadic Himba people, incredible desert-adapted wildlife, and the remains of many ancient civilizations. Located in Nile Valley, Sudan is bordered by eight North African nations, and the coastal lagoons and reefs of the Red Sea.
