Travel by truck A lot of travel in Sudan is done by truck. If you go to a truck park, normally near the market, you should be able to find a truck driver to take you where ever you want, conflict zones aside. You travel on top of the load with a large number of others. If you pick a truck carrying bags of something soft like peanuts it can be quite comfortable. Beer trucks are not. If the trip takes days then comfort can be vital, especially if the truck goes all night. It helps to sit along the back, as the driver will not stop just because you want the toilet. The cost has to be negotiated so ask hotel staff first and try not to pay more than twice the local rate. Sometimes the inside seat is available. Food can be bought from the driver, though they normally stop at roadside stalls every 5/6 hours. Departure time are normally at the start or end of the day, though time is very flexible. It helps to make arrangements the day before. It is best to travel with a few others. Women should never ever travel alone.
Travel to CAR If the situation in Darfur calms down, trucks will resume from the border to the CAE capital. The trip is an exceptional adventure as it passes through jungle and backwoods Africa. However the road is dirt the first third and turns to a mud bog during the wet season. Consequently a two/three day trip can turn to a two/ three week trip as you winch from bog to bog. Take extra food etc. Always book through to the capital or you may be stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Author wrote: "Note: program of "Arabization" in process" I have a question - what the hell is "Arabization?" Who administers this "program?" The janjaweed, which murders hundreds of thousands black Africans or non-Arabs? Why doesn't WikiTravel call this "program" what it really is - a genocide of non-Arabs? I'm going to change this. WikiTravel cannot have any credibility if one shred of false information is given. Sapphire 04:19, 1 April 2006 (EST)
sudan is a great country
Do not lisen to the bbc go and see it for yourself and speak to some sudaness people they will tell you what is happen for really!
Sudan is a amazing contry, it has problems but what contry dosnt. It is slowly improving though.
I rolled back the addition of a work schedule for Sudan. Although it was interesting, it didn't seem to be useful for travellers looking for work in the country. I think the info could be summarized in a single sentence. --Evan 11:33, 22 December 2006 (EST)
As many of us would know, Southern Sudan will become independent on 9th July as the Republic of South Sudan. Should we create a new country page called South Sudan, or leave it as part of Sudan? Superdog 05:29, 25 June 2011 (EDT)
Shortened this edit to a short, 3rd person one, but thought it should be put here:
Anyone that can verify this? My thinking is that perhaps the police are just disorganized/lazy and you could get in trouble by police elsewhere in the country or when leaving (fixed with some $$, of course). AHeneen 23:50, 20 October 2011 (EDT)
