The day was a long day of driving but was well worth it. You are pretty much alone with the pyramids and can do or go wherever you want. There will be some people with camels trying to sell you a camel ride... a bit...More

What a visit it was although in the hot summer month with family and sand burning the feet. Although these are small and not of grandeur like that of Giza, Egypt, but even then makes the visit worth.

The pyramids at Begrawiya are well worth a visit. The locals refer to Begrawiya as 'old Meroe' and it is the site often referred to as Meroe. It was part of the ancient kingdom of Kush which ruled in Egypt and the Sudan as the...More

If you happen to be in The Sudan for an extended period, make sure you go to the Meroe Pyramids. It's worth the effort.

We were lucky to have visited the North and South Pyramids (the most spectacular) early one morning in late February and we were all alone. There was something very special about exploring this ancient history all by ourselves. The grouping of structures is very photogenic...More

Very interesting site for young and old. The adults enjoyed the history and the kids playing in the sand dunes. It's well worth the trip from Khartoum - especially if you stay in the adjacent tented camp. There are a few vendors outside of the...More

The Meroe Pyramids, the entire Necropolis, and the surroundig sites exceeded all expectations. The area provides a way to help imagine the lives and beliefs of the cultures that built and lived there about 200 years ago. Of course, to complete your visit to Meroe,...More

In the cooler months December to February the Meroe pyramids is worth the four hour drive from karthoum. The road is decent enough, I used my old Lancer. I camped out one night in a tent with friends. The locals are very warm and do...More

It is a long drive from Khartoum, but easily done as a day trip, and since there are limits of things to do in Khartoum why not. The pyramids themselves are not on the scale of Egypt, but quite interesting. While the structures are in...More

I stopped in to have a look on my way back to Khartoum after three weeks in the desert. This place is wonderful; the archaeology (built during the period when the Nubian pharaohs ruled over north Sudan and Egypt during the last millennium BCE) and...More

Hello, and thank you for your post! What a wonderful and interesting place! My only question is: is it (relatively) safe to get there? I know this may seem a futile question, but I'd thought I'd ask someone who has been there. Thanks again! -Alfred.

Sorry I don't check the site that often for questions. The security situation in Sudan has calmed down. Even over the past decades of insecurity most of the fighting had been in the western and southern portions of the... More

Which sites are you trying to see? Most companies are quiet expensive. As there is limited tourist infrastructure you would either need to read up on the history before hand or have a decent guide. The sites are quiet far... More

Hi Ninnna, thanks for the info; I am travelling to sudan for a work trip and want to spend a couple/few days there to see some sites... can you advise on any sites to visit before heading back to Ldn? If I wanted to get to Meroe pyramids on a budget, how would I get there from Khartoum? And how safe would this be for a female traveler (alone). thanks! Nur Hannah
