Dongola, Sudan: Korean Guesthouse - Really good accomodation
For those travelling through Sudan and looking for a place to stay in Dongola, I can highly recommend the 'Candaca Nubian Guest House' in Dongola. It is run by a lovely Korean family so is also known as the Korean guesthouse.
Clean, very very friendly & helpful, great facilities (washing machine, kitchen, fridge/freezer, compost bucket, recycling, internet, very secure parking etc etc).
Rooms are $10 pp including breakfast (Fresh coffee, tea, jam, honey, hard boiled eggs, bread, laughing cow cheese etc). Camping is possible for $7pp including breakfast.
Trucks won't fit through the driveway arch, but you could probably camp outside safely, the owners leave their nice car outside 24/7 and they have dogs at night outside). 4x4 with roof tents are no problem to come inside.
I mention it here because it is not included in either tracks4africa or my ohm gps map or in any guidebook etc etc. Using t4a trying finding the Lord Hotel or Ola hotel, then just keep following the same road and watch out for the 3 painted power poles of the guesthouse.
