Sudan is Africa’s third largest country and the 16th biggest in the world. The White Nile and Blue Nile converge in the capital Khartoum and it is a place blessed with stunning desert landscapes, hospitable people and many historical sites. However, Sudan is also known for its enduring conflicts between government forces and armed opposition groups. In the past, war ravaged its southern half, and more recently unrest has focused on Darfur, Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile state.
