From the ferry we hit the desert road that stretched down to Khartoum. We were excited to hit proper desert and a vast open quiet road. Paul from the UK joined us for the journey along with Frank from Germany, so we had lots of company and motivation.

The ferry from Aswan to Wadi Halfa was our chosen route to get from Egypt to Sudan. It turned out to be a beautiful trip totalling 14 hours along Lake Nasser. The night sky was spectacular, we booked a little cabin which was perfect and met some great other travellers...
