CITIES OF SUDAN
The main draw of Atbara is that it’s near the Nile’s Fifth Cataract. Plan only a few hours there — enough time to see the cataract and the old steam locomotives that died and are rusting in railyards. 172 mi/277 km northeast of Khartoum.
DINDER NATIONAL PARK
This medium-sized reserve 16,000 acres/6,475 hectares) is in eastern Sudan, on the border with Ethiopia. Lions, monkeys, giraffes, leopards, bushbucks, kudus, antelope and many kinds of birds can be seen there, but you’ll need your own vehicle. The park’s main season is January-April. 250 mi/400 km southeast of Khartoum.
On the Nile in northern Sudan, this town lies in a noted date-growing area. Across the river are the ruins of the Temple of Kawa. Dongola is served by bus and steamer (during winter months only). 284 mi/457 km
northeast of Khartoum.
The self-proclaimed “gum arabic capital of the world,” El Obeid is a fairly large desert city (pop. 140,000). It has a small history museum, two markets and, interestingly enough, one of the largest cathedrals in Africa (attend a Sunday service, even if you’re not particularly religious). Plan one night. 228 mi/367 km southwest of Khartoum.
Located in the beautiful Red Sea Hills, Erkowit was once a cool retreat for the British. There are, however, few original buildings left; it’s just a place to go to get out of the heat for a while. The area is reached by private vehicle. 62 mi/100 km south of Port Sudan.
When reopened, this area on the border with Uganda will be worth a visit for its cool climate and interesting tribal people. Like Erkowit (see separate paragraph), Matong was also a British hill station. Currently, the region is in rebel territory and considered unsafe to visit. 80 mi/129 km southeast of Juba.
This splendid region of small mountains in Darfur Province (western Sudan) is popular with trekkers. In the center of Jebel Marra is an extinct volcanic crater with a lake called the “Eye of Jebel Marra.” Most visitors pay for a truck ride to the area from Nyala (see separate paragraph). 60 mi/120 km northwest of Nyala.
