. The only guide dedicated solely to the new Republic of the Sudan . Explore entire pyramids and other ancient sites entirely free of tourist crowds . Drink in views over the Sudanese plains from the granite Taka Mountains . Dive the reef where Jacques Cousteau conducted his experiment in underwater living . Experience Sudan's cultural diversity among the 50 tribes of the Nuba Mountains . Read advice on where to stay/eat, travelling safely and cultural etiquette As a staple of bleak news headlines, Sudan has been slow to make its abundant attractions known to the outside world. Few foreigners have heard of the Kingdom of Kush, walked among the isolated pyramids of Meroe or witnessed the whirling dervishes of Omdurman. Yet those who do make it here are invariably enchanted by its easy-going nature, fascinating history and the warm welcome they receive from the Sudanese people. This, the only stand-alone guide to post-partition Sudan, leads you expertly from the labyrinthine souks of Khartoum to coral-bedecked wrecks off the Red Sea coast. Whether you're rushing through on the trans-Africa trail or whiling away weeks among rich archaeological sites, this fully revised third edition is your indispensible companion.

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
