Dr. Mohammed Abu Zeid Mustafa has been Minister of Tourism, Antiquities and Wildlife since 2015. Sudan’s tourism potential is comprised of rich multiple varieties of cultures, customs, traditions, historic monuments, religions, regions and climates.
Visitors are drawn to Khartoum because of its history, and Sudan witnessed many successive civilizations such as those of Meroe and Kouh. The antiquities of those civilizations can still be seen around the country.
The hospitality shown by the Sudanese is inherent in their culture: they are generally kind, friendly, and welcoming. Tourism can achieve both economic and social growth and development in Sudan.
