The Treasures of Ancient Nubia, an 11-day group and private tour, leads in at £2,945pp, with a special departure on April 13 with no single supplement.

It begins in the capital Khartoum, where Whirling Dervishes will perform, before the tour then proceeds to the ancient Christian capital of Old Dongola and the Unesco site of Jebel Barkal for views of the ancient burial site of Napata.

Other highlights include the necropolis of Meroe, with hundreds of burial temples on the banks of the Nile. The tour finishes in Khartoum with seats at a Nubian wrestling bout.
