Khartoum - Post Report Question and Answers

What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

One will want to visit the ancient ruins in Sudan. There are more pyramids in Sudan than in Egypt, although they are smaller. There are several other archaeological sites as well, all worth visiting. In addition, you will be close to countries worth visiting, such as Jordan, Ethiopia, Egypt, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, and Namibia. Make the most of your location! Almost everyone goes on a safari at some point, if they’ve not already done so in the past. - Feb 2018

The work was certainly fulfilling. In addition, I really enjoyed getting to know a place that most of the world has only heard of in the context of the Darfur conflict, and I also really enjoyed my dive trips. This was a hardship post, but in my case it fostered close relationships with a good group of people. - May 2017
