Sudan National Geographic
SNG is a brilliant idea of Mr. khalid Hamid, the renowned figure in water colour and oil painting and a photographer by nature. The idea evolved and and devoloped during our joint field trips to different destinations in Sudan. Our main goal is to present the beauty of our country to others inside and outside Sudan. The logo was designed by Mr. Khalid and executed by Mr. Majid mohi eldeen. It represents the desert and the forests of the poor and rich savanna with the River Nile in between. This aspiration made a reality by ITNA (Information Technology & Network Administration) the Digital content unit, University of Khartoum.

Headlines seem only to scream about conflict, poverty and environmental issues. We as, artists, historians, archeologists and other related sciences had the opportunity to go in magnificent journeys and experience the bright side. We have been there where sands are white like a smiles of locals, where watching the sunset by the Nile is priceless, and we been in the far north from Halfa to Sai island, Kerma, khandaq and old Dongola.
We experienced the west to Al Fashir, Al Obaid, and south Kordofan to Rashad and Kadogli. Central Sudan is the corridor to the north where famous sites of ancient Meroe at Begrawiya, the Napatan sites at the sacred mountain Jebel al Barkal. The famous Butana region with its temples and water reservoir (Hafir) which extends back in times immemorial. The six cataract ,Sabaloga, and all the way North East to Suakin , Red Sea hinterlands and Sanganeb. South east of the country is another field we explored down to Roseiris and historic Fazougli the heart of the Funj Kingdom.
Sudan is beautiful; therefore we would like to introduce it as open source for all.
We realized that Sudan is a hidden treasure. A group of Italian divers who established a small business on the Red Sea for diving lovers and boat trips one said: ‘’We brought Italy to Sudan’’. The Question is what if we can bring Sudan not only to them but to the world? . while doing this the documentation process will go step by step. We are losing a lot of our natural landscape as well as our heritage with the rapid development project, this is what we have captured by our cameras!!
Who are we? Our goals
