Have you ever wanted to gaze upon archaeological sites as the first Egyptologists once did? Join us exploring the hidden civilisations of Sudan, ancient Kush and Nubia, lords of the upper Nile and at times, rulers of Egypt itself. We follow the path of the life-giving River Nile as it winds through the Sahara Desert in Sudan, exploring the remnants of Meroitic and other civilisations along the river valley.

Sudan is a special country, fed by the eternal waters of the White and Blue Niles, for millennia the conduit between Egypt and sub-Saharan Africa. Trade, warriors, architecture, religion have all passed by, and we will see the impact of this kaleidoscope of civilisations in the historic and modern cultures of this expansive country. Sudan sprawls from Red Sea to Sahara Desert. We shall visit the Nile valley, the heart of this realm, whose control extended beyond any of the great ancient Egyptian empires. Beginning and ending in Khartoum the capital, we will explore northwards along the Nile valley to see an extraordinary range of sites and successive civilisations of great continuity over some five millennia. Desert roads, ferryboats, granite mountains, make up a fantastic odyssey through one of the Africa’s most striking places, a chance to see great sites of the Nile as the first Egyptologists once did.
