Khartoum, capital city of Sudan, defies expectations. Khartoum, Arabic Al-Khurṭūm, (“Elephant’s Trunk”), is located just south of the confluence of the Blue and White Nile rivers.
Originally an Egyptian army camp (pitched 1821), Khartoum grew into a garrisoned army town and today it’s a boisterous, modern, flashy city with an ever-increasing number of glass tower blocks altering its skyline.
The city is built where the Blue and White Niles meet and promises to win over any skeptic. Come to Khartoum today and walk in palm-fringed streets along the Nile River.
Khartoum is a major trade and communications centre, with rail lines from Egypt, Port Sudan, and Al-Ubayyid, river traffic on the Blue and White Nile rivers, and an international airport.

The National Museum of Sudan or Sudan National Museum, abbreviated SNM, is a great place to start your exploration.
iSNM is a double storied building constructed in 1955 and established as a museum in 1971. The building and its surrounding gardens house the largest and most comprehensive Nubian archaeological collection in the world including objects from the Paleolithic through to the Islamic period originating from every site of importance in Sudan.
