The airport at Port Sudan has flights to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and Cairo, Egypt. Typically, these flights originate and finish in Khartoum.

Dilapidated yellow cabs service the airport, and they frequently overcharge. Alternatively, contact +249 183 591 313 or email [email protected] to book a cab with LimoTrip, a Khartoum taxi business that uses metered taxis and excellent cars at better prices.

By land

The border hamlet of Gallabat is one route to enter from Ethiopia. Depending on political and trade ties between the two nations, the road crossing from Egypt shuts on a regular basis. Before attempting this path, make sure you have all of the necessary information.

By boat

The weekly boat from Aswan, Egypt, to Wadi Halfa is the most dependable route to enter Sudan from Egypt. It now travels to Sudan on Mondays and returns on Wednesdays. Prices have lately risen to US$33. The boat is ancient and packed with people and stuff (the best place to sleep is on the cargo deck), but it offers some spectacular vistas (including that of Abu Simbel). On board, there is food and drink. Saudi Arabian ferries arrive often. Ferry tickets may be bought at Khartoum’s major railway station in North Khartoum if traveling from the south.
