Flights to Khartoum

Flights to Khartoum, the capital of the Republic of Sudan, take you to where the White Nile and Blue Nile meet in northeast Africa. Khartoum is a bustling and modern city, the beating commercial and cultural heart of this huge Islamic African nation.

To see the two mighty rivers in action – yes, they are different colours – head to White Nile Bridge. Here, you will see the world’s longest river continue its near 7,000km journey, something you can be a part of at the Marin Water Sports Club by taking a sunset cruise. (And as one of the sunniest cities in the world, with over 3,700 hours of sunshine a year, you’ll always be in for a treat.)

For a dose of local culture, head through the tree-lined streets of the central city to Hamed El-Nil Mosque on a late Friday afternoon for a thrilling performance from a troupe of whirling dervishes.

If you’re looking for traditional shopping, head south from the Great Mosque (Masjid Al-Kabir) to find the city’s most famous souq, Souq Al-Arabi, which is spread across several blocks. Pick up a few trinkets at the souq dedicated to gold, or – if you’re seeking a more international fashion offering – head to Khartoum’s Al Waha Mall or Afra Mall in Arkaweet which are full of Western-style clothes shops and cafes.

Khartoum has a handful of international hotels such as the Corinthia and the Al Salam Rotana, but there’s also a range of locally owned properties for all budgets. The city is easy to navigate by taxi or auto-rickshaw and there is a public bus service running almost 24 hours a day.
