Greater Khartoum

Travel to Greater Khartoum – State and Capital City of Sudan

Khartoum is one of the 26 ‘wilayat’ or states of Sudan and is also the national capital. Khartoum provides the meeting point of the White and Blue Nile Rivers – from where the River Nile continues its journey north into Egypt to eventually spill into the Mediterranean Sea.

Omdurman and Khartoum North are other major urban centres in this state, which is also the smallest state of Sudan.

  • Experience city life in Sudan’s largest metropolis, then escape to the wilderness of the north
  • Take a trip on the River Nile aboard a local sailing boat and see the city from a different perspective
  • Relax in the comfortable surrounds of a modern hotel at the end of a hard but rewarding journey through a little-visited country
