      Hi my friends!
      May you inform me about the more importants things to visit in North Sudan...? 7-8 days is enough time to enjoy it ?
      I understood that to visit the South Khartoum, and the West is dangerous.
      Also it seems that to obtain the visa and some other papers is difficult.
      Some local agency in Khartoum is really good to organize the trip?
      Thanks a lot for your advice

      Upcoming Carnival

      Kassala Feb 17, 2014 at 6:33 PM

      Hi, so far I have read once that during carnival most things shut down. Meaning public transport from city to city, is this true? Ideally I would not like to be in Las Tablas for 4 days because the buses are are not running. Besides renting a car to get around, most people usually stay put when carnival is happening, correct? That and I hear most go out to the countryside?

      thanks charles

    • help with visa

      Khartoum Feb 13, 2014 at 9:14 AM

      Hi everyone

      I need some help and advice.

      I am british and living in UAE encountering problems finding anyone who can supply a visa quickly.

      I need to try and get to Khartoum within a week.

      I know it is a long shot, but the sudan embassy here told me that you can send a person that knows you in Khartoum to the ministry of interior who send you to the ministry of foreigners or ajanib, apparently these guys can get a you a visa quickly?

      Also there are agencies that do it there in Khartoum for you, I do have a contact in Khartoum but we don't know of the agencies.

      Can anybody please help?

      Thanks so much in advance.

      2. What is the best place to find books of differnt sorts and at the cheapest possible price?
