Much has changed in Sudan since the first edition of this guidebook was published in 2005. Following the peace agreement that ended the civil war of 1983-2005, southern Sudan is newly accessible to adventurous travelers. Bradt's Sudan continues to be the only guidebook dedicated to this emerging destination. This new edition offers full coverage of the southern towns of Juba, Malakal, Wau and Rumbek, and provides information on recently de-mined driving routes. It also details the increasing hotel and restaurant options in Khartoum, and Sudan's developing wildlife tourism industry.
