Kassala is a can’t be miss destination in Sudan. The striking Taka Mountain range, the half-ruined mosque, and the souq are just some of the attractions of Kassala.
Meroe was much bigger than I expected and walking up and down sand dunes was definitely not the easiest. I stayed until the sun set and it was too dark to see. There were pyramids still unexplored. Yet, I was content.
Can you travel Sudan independently? Doable, but not easy. I traveled in Sudan by myself visiting Khartoum, Meroe, and Kassala using public buses and taxi.
