ERKOWIT
Closed, green hills

Erkowit would make a fantastic couple with a restored Suakin. But it's closed, really closed. Nobody knows what happens here, perhaps it's a training camp for Palestinian soldiers? Erkowit holds a reputation of having one of the most beautiful nature sides of Sudan, green with soft hills, but without too much elevation.

Eat and Sleep
A nice hotel which fits nicely into the nature.

Transportation
Lorries, or buses (when travelling here becomes possible again).
