Cultural Sensitivity 

On our tours you will frequently interact with local people, each with their own distinct customs and traditions. We therefore ask you to be considerate and to treat them with respect. Your tour-leaders and guides will always be able to advise you accordingly.  

It should be noted that Sudan is a conservative country and both men and women should dress accordingly. In general, loose fitting cotton clothing is best. Neither men nor women should wear shorts; long trousers or long skirts are recommended. Women in particular should be prepared to cover their shoulders when in habited areas. Please note there is no need for women to wear a headscarf, though it’s a good idea to when in the more traditional areas and when visiting religious sites. 

Language & Religion 

In Sudan almost, the entire population of the country follows Islam (around 97%). The other 3% is made up of various animist beliefs and Christianity. Sudan has around 70 different languages, of which Arabic is the most widely spoken alongside various tribal languages. Sudan’s official languages are Arabic and English, with English being spoken by the educated and elite.

Food and drink 

In Sudan, as much of the time will be spent camping, you can expect picnic lunches and dinners which will be a mixture of international and local food. The most common local dishes are ful and fasolija (both bean-based soups), lamb, falafel (taamiya), meat or vegetable stews. 

Please remember that alcohol is strictly forbidden in Sudan and you should not attempt to bring any into the country.
