Sudan: Khartoum

The capital of Sudan is called Khartoum. Translated it means “elephant trunk”. The two tributaries of the Nile, the White and the Blue Nile, meet here. The city is located at the intersection of the two tributaries of the Nile. Since this looks like the end of a trunk, it was given this name.

If you look at a map of Sudan, Khartoum is roughly in the middle of Sudan. The city is also the center of the country. This is where the government and administration of the country and the university are located. Today Khartoum is a modern city with several million inhabitants, as the city is composed of several parts.
