Getting Around

Bus & Minibus

Sudan is undergoing a road-building frenzy and all significant towns northeast of El-Obeid are now linked by excellent paved roads. Fast, comfortable buses have almost totally replaced most of the bokasi (pick-up trucks) that formerly bounced over the desert between big northern towns. There are also plenty of minibuses between the smaller towns; they usually leave when they're full. It's best to buy bus tickets a day in advance.
