Discover Sudan! specialises in archaeological and cultural tours in Sudan. Created and directed by expert archaeologists with longstanding experience of working in Sudan, our trips offer adventure, education, the company of like-minded travellers and an in-depth appreciation of Sudan's unique culture – both past and present.
Discover Sudan! was founded by archaeologist and Egyptologist Claudia Näser, an academic with a twenty-year research background in the field. Discover Sudan! follows a unique concept: to translate the professionalism and the feeling of an archaeological expedition into a travelling experience.
All tours are designed by Claudia and directed by her or a member of her research team. The Sudanese logistics managers, drivers and cooks who support the trips are working in the same roles in archaeological field projects. Many of them have worked with Claudia for a number of years.
Travelling with Discover Sudan! means experiencing archaeology from the inside.
History and culture aside, two things that are particularly noteworthy about travelling in Sudan. Since there is almost no tourist infrastructure and almost no tourists around, you will feel right at the heart of things, immersed in everyday life as well as in the solitude of the desert and the aura of the archaeological sites. And the much-commented-on hospitality of the Sudanese people will make your personal encounters along the trip a very special experience.
