Sudan is the biggest country in Africa, but it receives the least number of international visitors among African countries. There are travel restrictions due to the ongoing conflict in several parts of Sudan.
However, that doesn’t mean tourists should never consider Sudan as their next travel destination. In fact, the country has been going through a facelift to become a tourist destination. The northeast region and some parts of the southern region in Sudan are suitable and safe for foreign visitors. Sudan may pale in comparison to other African countries when it comes to tourism, but paying it a visit can be a rewarding and even life-changing experience for you.
