Sudan entry with Israeil visa stamps

I am planning to travel overland Syria - Jordan - Israel - Egypt - Sudan and continue south down the east coast of Africa. I have read on Lonely Planet I cannot enter Syria or Sudan with an Israeli stamp in my Australian passport. Syria isn't a problem because I will be thru... how about Sudan? Can anyone confirm this? Alternatively, can I get my bike on a ferry from southern Jordan (Aqaba) and into Egypt thereby bypassing Israel?
Thanks in advance.
Ciao

Thant's a definite NO-NO. Sometimes you can get away with asking for your passport not to be stamped, but even then some smartie may figure out where you've been from your Jordanian exit/egyptian entry points.

Yes, there is a fast ferry once a day from Aqaba (Jordan) to Nuweiba (Egypt) so you can bypass Israel.

Hoping this may be useful:

advised by my embassy

a few years back i traveled from jordan into israel. and when i arrived at the border i kindly told the gal behind the window that i had been advised by my embassy to have you stamp my entry and exit stamps on a seperate piece of paper that i can remove. but you will have an exit stamp from jordan but no entry to anywhere else... for me i flew to turkey, so i had an exit out of jordan, and entry into turkey, the two contries are not connected. as of yet.

A lot of countries will issue you with a duplicate passport. You can then get get the Jordan and Israel in one passport, and get the others done in the second passport. I don't know which countries do this, although the UK certainly does.
