Travel Details & Dates

Visa for Sudan - get it early. Slow and expensive. If all else fails, it is said that access by land from Egypt is fairly easy to do, I may turn part of the trip around and have me flying into Cairo, go up the Nile to Aswan, then on to Sudan and bus up-river to Khartoum, from there fly back to Aswan and take trains back to Cairo.

 

Right now I show 45 days, with some flex in the system
