Format: Paperback
This is one of the worst and most incorrect travel books that is available about any country and that I encountered in decades of travelling and living in many countries around the globe. Too much 'information' is so wrong that it sometimes is even dangerous to rely on it, particularly in a country like Sudan. Where there is an established bridge the authors make you believe that one must take a ferry.

Apparently not too much has been corrected or even newly researched for this third edition, when one compares it to edition 1 of a few years back.
Information regarding how to reach sites frequently is so imprecise or missing at all that hardly anybody is ever able to locate a number of sites, instead the 'new' authors rely on taking a local ricksha or donkey cart to get you there. Certainly no traveller with his own vehicle will ever be able to locate a number of localities. Even some of the very few given GPS coordinates are not accurate. Several interesting locations are not mentioned at all. Road or track conditions are at times wrong or missing at all. Important accommodation facilities are unknown to that 'guide', which is inexcusable as Sudan doesn't have many possibilities anyway. Prices can't always be correct, so this is not criticised.

It appears that the new authors probably have visited the museum in Khartoum and otherwise were quickly, if at all, driven by some sort of guide to a few common places only, without grasping very much of what goes on and where they really are.

Save your money or at least be very careful when using that 'travel guide'.
Regrettably there are not many choices, or no other choices, when it comes to Sudan.

I'll be better able to judge after I return from Sudan but on the face of it, seems to be a well written and thorough presentation. Normally, I use Lonely Planet's guide though I used Rough Guide for Egypt and Bradt for Iraq. And I do like Bradt's approach and organization of material. They give a detailed picture of the country's history and are quite specific about current conditions. The book is more personalized than other reference books. A bit more than a compilation of facts. And I liked the maps. Recommend it.

I felt it was not well researched and thin on info, thus disappointed. Both the Sudans should have been included.-I've lost my enthusiasm for Bradt and cancelled my South Sudan order
