Introducing Khartoum

Built where the two Niles meet, Khartoum defies expectations. Rather than the run-down, undeveloped city many people imagine, Khartoum is a boisterous, modern, flashy city with an ever-increasing number of glass tower blocks altering its skyline. As well as an excellent museum, some fascinating souqs and Nile-side views, Khartoum's good facilities, hospitable people and laid-back vibe mean that most people find it an agreeable place to come to terms with being in Sudan.
