No comparison to Pyramids of Giza....but who wants decorated camels anyway?
In a nutshell
Could be a place for a spiritual moment?
The historical site of Meroe is so uncommericalised that there is no food outlets here. If you do wish to eat something during your visit, you need to bring your own.

From Khartoum, take a bus heading to Atbara, and ask to be let off at Bajrawiya or Al-Ahram. If they don't stop the bus, then you should be able to spot them through the windows...I mean, thirty black pyramids and orange sand dunes do tend to bbe hard to miss, especially with the dull scenery for the rest of the trip...when you see them, start clicking! The fare to Atbara on a hafla (cheapish bus) is 10,000 pounds. Bajrawiya is about halfway between Khartoum and Atbara, but they may insist on making you pay full fare...argue! Leaving the pyramids, basically you have no option but to hitch...most vehicles will stop, especially if they see a khawaja...we caught a lift on a police water truck to Shendi, from where we took a bus back to Khartoum.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Be mindful that this is the desert so dress for it. Always protect yourself from the sun, heat & sand by wearing a hat, comfortable cotton clothes and comfortable walking shoes, preferably trainers because hot sand might dry & burn your feet if you wear sandals
Miscellaneous: Bring bottled water and a small snack, in case of dehydration
