1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The nuba wrestling, the dervishes and the markets in Kaboshija near the Meroe pyramids. Karima was fun and very authentic and the waterholes in the desert with the girls arriving on their donkeys through the sandstorm. The camel market would merit a little more time than just 15 minutes.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Ask exactly, when the tour starts and when it ends. We ended up being one day too early in Khartoum and leaving one day later than the rest of the group. The tour is supposed to last 10 days, but it's really only 8. If we had known that before we would have booked the extension to tombos. Bring your torch to el Kurru tombs! Bring tight fitting sunglasses good for sandstorms.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The reusable waterbottles we were asked to bring were of no use, as there is nowhere to fill them. For any impact, our engagement would have to be more active: collecting garbage between the pyramides for exemple or on excavations sites - and for the locals to see. In Karima we should have had lunches in the town and not eat three times a day in the nubian guesthouse. Watering the big central lawn for hours seems an incredible waste of water in this dry area.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Perfect and very easy travelling.
