  • Internet in El Obeid

    Al Ubayyid General

    It took me quite some time to find an Internet Cafe in El Obeid. It isn’t advertised at all. People who need it probably know where it is. The one I found is in the street of the Bank of Khartoum under a sign saying “Al Hadi Mohammed Husein Krisnallah & Sons“ in a kind of small shopping mall. They have ADSL and several computers with headsets. The...

  • Not really very good

    Al Ubayyid Restaurants

    My travel guide described this restaurant as the only one worth to visit for a taste of 'International' cuisine.I took my friends there for my birthday. The place is richly decorated but the food is just about average, relatively expensive for what is served and the portions are small.The waiter/cook came with a lot of food stains on his...

  • Shopping for food in El Obeid

    Al Ubayyid Shopping

    On the street besides the Sudanese Central bank (not the street where the entrance is, but the side street), you’ll find a row of shops for meat and fruit & vegetables and several small super-markets. One of the super-markets has written “Welcome” in English above the door and the owner, a Christian Sudanese, speaks quite good English and is very...

    Kadugli Warnings and Dangers

    Kadugli, being in the middle of the Nuba Mountains conflicts, is now safe, but that doesn't stop the security forces taking an interest in any khawaja that happens to pass through. Make sure you have the correct travel documents, otherwise you will be sent back. The mountains round Kadugli look beautiful and perfect for trekking, although there are...

  • Sunset views from the mountains

    Kadugli Things to Do

    As the afternoon heat begins to die down, head away from the souq to climb one of the mini mountains which surround the town. The most easily accessible one is right behind the football stadium, and indeed, you can keep an eye on the match from afar as you climb. Pick a path through the mud huts on the lower slopes, or ask a local child to show you...

  • Drinks

    Kadugli Restaurants

    One thing I noticed very early on was the total lack of fruit juice in Kadugli. Now, after the excellent juices in Kassala, I've become something of an addict, so this was a bit of a disappointment for me...it certainly put me off the idea of relocating to Kadugli next year. Other cold drinks, including bottled water, are more expensive too, as...

    Dilling Warnings and Dangers

    I can almost guarantee that at this point in time there are no mines anywhere in the vicinty of Dilling - or any village within an hour driving of Dilling. Having said that - my 100% guarantee is for the trodden paths/tracks/roads. Outside of that, I have been reassured by many locals on many occassions that their villages are mine free from El...

  • Ice cream and shawarma!

    Dilling Restaurants

    Exit the bus station, and head straight on at the crossroads...you will soon spot a shawarma stall where the best shawarmas in all central Sudan are to be found. the owners were quite shocked at seeing two khawajas come in, and one of them almost fell off his seat when we ordered our sandwiches in Arabic! They sat and watched as we ate, along with...
