Abdelmounim

I have travelled all over Sudan and have been fortunate enough to meet many Sudanese people of different ethnicities and from different backgrounds. Sudanese people are very friendly, welcoming and have a lovely character, and I am very happy and proud to be part of this population. Furthermore I am also very glad to have experienced and learnt so much about Sudanese history, archaeology, geography and culture, and to be able to explain to people the beauty of this country.

Specialist: Sudan


Interview

Q: How did you fall into tour leading?

A: I used to be a theatre actor, but under the current regime no plays happened. So I started working with International NGO's until a couple of friends of mine (who are also Tour Leaders in Sudan) told me about this opportunity.

Q: What do you like most about tour leading?

A: I like it because in a way every tour is a ‘play’!

Q: Where is your favourite part of the world?

A: So far I have visited UAE (where I worked briefly) but I didn't like it that much! I enjoyed the time I have spent in Ethiopia for holidays and also Egypt for studying and training. I also like Italy (Florence and Milan) where I started the long process of learning French.

Q: What was your biggest travel highlight?

A: The source of the Blue Nile in Ethiopia & the Valley of the Kings in Egypt...and the food in Italy!

Q: What’s the one thing you couldn't travel without?

A: The photo of my family, my beautiful wife and amazing three daughters.

Q: Which famous person would you most like to travel with?

A: Nelson Mandela (RIP) and George Clooney (for his passion for Sudan).

Q: Have you ever made a cultural faux pas?

A: Yes, I've definitely learned from a few of those!
