The Allure: Dip your toes into the confluence of the Blue Nile and White Nile, choose one hump or two at the camel market in Khartoum, and visit the Meroë pyramids.

The Warning: The ongoing slaughter and starvation in Darfur and the recent indictment of Sudan’s president for war crimes give a clue to what you can expect here. In January 2008, two American Embassy employees were assassinated while driving in Khartoum. In recent years, Americans and Europeans have been victims of robberies and carjackings. The State Department warns against all travel to Sudan.

Go or No? Seriously?(Nevertheless, all the danger isn’t stopping Raidan Travel & Tours in Omdurman from operating.)
