Best Time To Travel To Sudan

We recommend traveling to Sudan anytime from October to March. In general, Sudan is a very hot country, and April through September and extremely hot and not for the faint of heart. There is so much to do and see in this country that you may just walk away surprised with what you never knew was here. Whilst in Sudan, visit the Meroe Pyramids, Naqa, Karima, Soleb, and Kerma to dig deeper into the country’s ancient history, visit the town of Kassala with backdrops of the picturesque Taka Mountains or head over to Port Sudan for off the radar diving.
