Sudan by Helicopter – Africa Adventures
Once a powerful presence in Northern Africa, the ancient kingdom of Nubia, now called Sudan, is endowed with priceless secrets of forgotten existence buried beneath mounds of red brick rubble.
Modern day Sudan is fascinating for so many reasons. A fusion of African, Egyptian & Mediterranean culture, its history greatly influenced by the Nile. Ancient pyramids and temples, set within spectacular wild desert landscapes, back to 1500 BC when Egyptian pharaohs conquered Nubia.
We are extremely excited about new heli-tourism prospects in Sudan, keeping to our philosophy of offering specialised and classic helicopter journeys, uncovering Africa’s greatest places whilst offering true adventure. With thanks to the Italian Tourism Co we were invited on a recce safari to experience Sudan for the first time. Here are a few photos of the trip.
The Nubian Pyramids of Meroe are some of Sudan’s most iconic. Built by the rulers of the ancient Kushite Kingdoms, the pyramids are solid and erected over burial chambers and monuments.
