Your time in Khartoum is in a hotel. We have one night where we may sleep in tents near the ruins of Ancient Meroe. The other nights will be in guest houses. We would like to upgrade it but the ruins that we are visiting, once we get out of Khartoum, have very basic housing but we will do our best to make you as comfortable as possible. In Sudan the tourist infrastructure is not great but the people are, and the monuments are spectacular. It is not a trip for everyone
But it is truly the trip of a lifetime with many positive and unforgettable experiences.
