Pyramids, Temples and Nubian Culture of Sudan’s Nile Valley
Sudan is where the Arab world meets Africa and where the Blue Nile meets the white. One of Africa’s largest countries, the vast deserts and mesmerising landscapes of Sudan have always attracted explorers looking to discover the secrets of the ancient Nubian civilisations, ruins and the untouched marine life.
Sudan holds an amazing diversity of tribes, languages, culture and more pyramids than Egypt. But unlike Egypt, you will explore a country completely untouched by tourism. Even the Red sea seemed more crystal clear, clean and full of colours.
The most fascinating site for amateur archaeologists is the ancient city of Meroe, which is home to the Royal Necropolis made up of narrow pyramids. Wander the sands they sit on and discover more about the royal burial site beneath your feet.
The pyramids bear decorative elements inspired by Pharaonic Egypt, Greece and Rome, according to UNESCO, making them priceless relics.
Underwater adventures are a real diving rarity where ancient legends come to life. This is the home of Cousteau’s underwater empire, of Umbria resting in her watery grave and of Shaab Rumi teeming with hammerhead sharks.
Khartoum is the capital city of Sudan. It is known for its rich life style. It is holding some of the most cultural inhibitions which represent the past ways of living in this city. There are also some fine archaeological structures here such as Naga and Nuri.
The Confluence of the Nile, is one of the most important geographical highlights of Sudan. It’s just a fantastic experience to see the two Niles meet at one place. The tow Niles have distinct colours, the White Nile is muddy and brown, and the Blue Nile is greenish.
The people of Sudan are extremely friendly and be prepared to attend many dinner invites, and don’t be surprised if you been invited by shop owners to have a cup of tea with them, it’s just a warm welcome.
