Our Sudan Stories

In March 2014, a bunch of us made a trip to Sudan. It was a most memorable outing, with new travel experiences not available elsewhere in the world. Here’s the collection of the entries I have made on this website on this wonderful journey.

Khartoum, Capital of the Sudan

We spend several days in Khartoum before embarking on a tour of the famed archaelogical sites in the deserts of northern Sudan. While in Khartoum, we are indeed honoured and grateful to be hosted by H.E. The Ambassador of Malaysia to the Sudan, Dato’ Ashri Muda and his lovely missus, Datin Rohayahti. (March 2014)

From Dongola to Kerma in Northern Sudan

Our final leg of the Sudan trip is a road trip from Dongola to Kerma and back to Khartoum, a 550-km drive through the hot Sahara. Kerma is a huge archaelogical site, with ruins some 9,500 years old. An urban centre started here about 5,000 years ago, and this is regarded as Sudan’s earliest culture. Here’s an HD slideshow of this leg of the journey, especially Kerma. (March 2014)
