Situated at the meeting point of the White and Blue Niles, the sprawling capital Khartoum captivates with its welcoming atmosphere, chaotic marketplaces, and extravagant skyline punctuated with glass towers.
Sudan National Museum and Naga: Temple of Amun are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Appreciate the collections at Mojo Gallery and Khalifa House Museum. Change things up with a short trip to Tomb of Muhammad Ahmad (Madhi) in Omdurman (about 38 minutes away). There's still lots to do: browse the different shops at Afra Mall, head off the coast to Tuti Island, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Al Kabir Mosque, and don't miss a visit to Nile Street.

To see reviews, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Khartoum trip builder website.

Stockholm, Sweden to Khartoum is an approximately 18-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Stockholm to Khartoum due to the time zone difference. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Stockholm in June, with highs in Khartoum at °C and lows at °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sat) so you can go by car to Merowe.
