I visited the Tuti island in October. I along with our friends visited the island, we started in the after noon and came back in the evening. There is no public transport to go to the island. So we took a Minibus up to the market area. Then we hired a Tri wheeler to go inside the island. The island... More

Make sure you take a boat round Tuti Island to see the meeting of the Blue and White Niles. Fantastic bird watching so go early on Fri or Sat to catch some rare sightings.

While I lived in Khartoum, Tuti island was my favorite place for relaxed walk and birdwatching. Beautiful place, rich in birdlife.

Sad to see the poorness of the island and the people even though it is in the heart of the capital, in other countries this island would be marvelous to see, I hope one day it will get some attention from the government to make some development at least by the Nile confluence.

Nicely located in the river opposite one of the crudest areas in Khartoum, you can enjoy your tea or coffee with a wonderful view, especially at the evening or night.

Have a stroll among the planted fields of onions amd aubergines on a Friday morning. You will fell in a farmland while seeing the highrise of Khartoum. Talk to friendly local farmers who will want to sell tounland. Look at the majestic Nile as Blue and White Nile meet between Khartoum amd Omduan. Plan two hours of walking.

Just across a newly built bridge is this suburb of Khartoum. There are fields, donkeys, cows, dirt roads. It's a quick introduction to life outside of Khartoum while still in Khartoum. Having said that, go up to the top of the Corinthia Hotel and snap some pics. You'll get a better view and a greater understanding than walking around a... More
