Living in Khartoum and What to Do
Built where the Blue and White Niles meet, Khartoum defies expectations. It's a boisterous, modern, flamboyant city with an ever-increasing number of glass tower blocks altering its skyline. As well as an excellent museum, some fascinating souqs (markets) and incredible Nile-side views and boat trips, Khartoum's good facilities, hospitable people and laid-back vibe mean that most people find it an interesting place to live and work. There are first class hotels, gyms and excellent restaurants and supermarkets with imported food items.

Outside Khartoum, there are tourist attractions such as the lovely old pyramids of Nuri, near Karima, which lie amidst a dramatic setting of orange sand. Dating from around the 7th century BC these are both the oldest and largest pyramids in the country. Some of our teachers have even been camping in the desert. Another popular trip over a long weekend is a visit to Port Sudan. This can be reached via plane from Khartoum to Port Sudan New International Airport or via a tarred road linking Port Sudan to Khartoum via Atabara which passes through great scenery the pyramids of Meroe (Meroë). Port Sudan also has a rail link with Khartoum: trains leave every Monday at 20:00 and arrive about twenty hours later.
