About Sudan

Sudan, officially known as the Republic of Sudan, is an East African country located on the coast of the Red Sea. It shares borders with the Central African Republic, Libya, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Chad. The capital city is Khartoum, and the country is home to the Nile Valley, which holds significant importance in agriculture and the economy.
Sudan has a long history, its earliest inhabitants can be traced to the Mesolithic Era in Africa. It is also one of the largest countries in Africa in terms of land area.
The official language and the most widely spoken language among the people in Sudan is Arabic. However, people speak various languages as Nubian and Beja in different regions. The currency used in Sudan is the Sudanese Pound, although US dollars and euros are commonly accepted in major cities.
Sudan has a population of over 30 million people, with the majority being Muslim. There are also small Christian and other religious communities that have been living in Sudan for a long time.
Sudan experiences diverse climate zones, with a hot desert climate prevailing in the north and a tropical climate in the south. The country can also witness intense sandstorms periodically, so it is advised to research and prepare accordingly, before traveling.
Apart from the capital Khartoum, other cities in Sudan include Omdurman, and Port Sudan, the country's largest port city.
Sudan's economy relies heavily on mining and agriculture. The country is rich in underground resources, with petroleum, gold, silver, and zinc among the primary minerals. In agriculture, Sudan produces crops like cotton, sugarcane, potatoes, bananas, and mangoes, similar to many other African countries.
While Sudan is suitable for travel throughout the year, Independence Day on January 1st, Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr, and Eid al-Adha holidays create a livelier atmosphere.
Sudan's cuisine is similar to that of other Arab countries, offering a variety of delicious rice dishes, chicken, and lamb. One notable aspect of dining in Sudan is the preference for eating with hands rather than utensils, especially in the southern regions. Travelers should consider traveling with a local guide when exploring the southern parts of the country.
