Sudan

Sudan (Arabic: السودان Al-Sudan) is the third largest country in Africa and sixteenth largest in the world, bordering Egypt, Eritrea, Central African Republic, Chad, Ethiopia, Libya, and South Sudan. Getting a visa for Sudan is an expensive hit-and-miss affair, but if you do manage to get in, and you stick to the safe areas, you will probably have a memorable experience. The Sudanese people are very hospitable, and you can visit some awesome tourist attractions without even seeing another tourist.

WARNING: Travel in Sudan outside Khartoum, Omdurman and the Northern State is dangerous. There is ongoing violence along the border with with Southern Sudan and in Darfur. Travel to the Blue Nile and Southern Kordofan states and the Darfur region is extremely dangerous and strongly discouraged, including overland travel to/from Chad & South Sudan. Bandits and terrorist groups have targeted foreign visitors for attacks and kidnapping, particularly in the Upper Nile regions and near the Ethiopian border. The government of Sudan has declared an outbreak of Chikungunya in the east of Sudan (especially Kassala).
