Review quote

Reviews of first edition'Best and only dedicated guide to Sudan' - Wanderlust magazine 'It may seem a strange time to be publishing the first guide devoted entirely to Sudan, but hardy travelers have long been discovering the wonders of Africa's largest country so this book is very welcome all the same. Despite the crisis in the currently inaccessible region of Darfur in the west of the country, the author optimistically includes it as well as creating a yearning to see the archaeological treasures of the ancient kingdom of Kush, explore the lmatong mountains, meet the bejeweled women of Kassala market and taste bush - a poor man's alternative to a bean stew.' - The Observer
