    I was in Khartoum on business several years ago, and enjoyed staying at the Acropole Hotel. Meals served in the rooftop dining area were very good, but the Sudan Club and the Greek Club were even better. Most places had outdoor seating and remained open til about 2am. Making a long evening of dining outside in the desert was very memorable, plus there was very little else to do except eat the great food and drink Camel beer. The stores close by noon due to the intense heat and then reopen by 7pm and tend to stay open late. Khartoum, North Khartoum, and Omdurman are at the juncture of the blue and white Niles which meet and run to Cairo, so there is an unlimited amount of water for irrigation. Many of the homes I visited had little oases in their back yards created by deep-watering 24hsr a day. During the haboob (duststorm) season they kept the houses pressurized with water coolers to keep the dust out, although short power outages were very common. I never ventured into the dangerous south of the country where one of my co-workers contracted malaria. There was an attempted coup while I was there, so this is not a location I'd recommend for the novice traveler.
