Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While the crisis in the western region is devastating, the end to civil war in the south has inspired a spirit of optimism in Sudan.

This is a land of delightful contrast, boasting desert caravans, lush river valleys and more pyramids than Egypt itself. It offers the intrepid visitor a fulfilling cultural experience in one of Africa's most hospitable countries.

Paul Clammer shows in this, the first comprehensive guide to Sudan, that beyond troubled Darfur lies an extraordinary country, and a culture of kindness to strangers. Discover the archaeological riches of Kush and Nubia, scuba dive in the Red Sea, or relax on a Nile cruise through colorful Khartoum.

Inside you will find information on:

* Security, visas and border crossings

* Where to stay and eat, and how to get around

* Detailed coverage of culture and history

* Sudan's civil war in context, and information for aid workers

Book News Annotation:

This work bills itself as the first comprehensive travel guide to the Sudan. It takes a pretty standard approach to the topic, first offering chapters on the country's geography, wildlife, peoples, and history and then discussing planning and preparation, general issues of travel in Sudan, and health and safety before moving on to a region-by-region guide to sites, accommodations, means of travel, and similar matters. There is discussion of the regions of Darfur and South Sudan, although the guide cautions that it may still be too dangerous to visit these areas.
